I have a freezer very similar to this one (a holiday 7.2cf) and it looks almost like you can't fit 4. but you can.

they have to be ball locks though. can't fit 4 pinlocks

Okay, I went to HD and the price is right. My new keezer is now sitting in my brewhouse. $50 off the original price feels so good. It almost made up for SWMBO's look on her face when I got home with it.

I got home very late last night so I didn't get a chance to run a tape on the inside. Hang on, I have the manual with me at work. Let me see if it says what they are....

I looked through the manual at the store and didn't see the inside dimensions.

I took a zip tie that was the same width as my 6.5g carboy which I thought was 12 inches and it was exactly 2 lengths of that wide and about 14-15 deep.

I've been lurking on this one because I'm interested in picking one up if it will fit two 6 gallon better bottles inside. What do you guys think?

Edit: You beat me to the punch, Kilted.

easy, I think it will fit 2 -6.5g carboy very tightly. The key with this is that it has more width than depth.

Take a look at the pics

GE looks like there is not enough depth to fit 2 front to back



magic chef 7.2sq ft has more depth but not the width

No luck. Stupid GE.
I'll run home and put a tape on it in a couple of hours so you guys can have ID's on it.
