Hi everyone and Merry Christmas (and Happy Holidays). I am looking into getting a mini fridge to put 2 or 3 corny kegs and a 5# co2 tank. As we all know the Sanyo 4912 is the fridge of choice. Unfortunately, after dropping $200 on the homebrew keg kit I am not looking to drop another $200 on a mini-fridge:
http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=324

I have been Craigslist deal hunting for awhile and so far nothing matches the more popular make and models converted on here.

I was hoping if anyone who has a similar setup but a different make/model of the fridge for their kegerator could list it here as a research tool for us bargain hunters.

For Instance:

Model: Sayno 4912 4.9 Cubic Feet (SR-4912m)
Fits: 2 Corny Kegs 1 5# CO2 tank
Link: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/sany...version-19596/
Note: Most popular fridge to mod but is difficult to find

Model: Oster 5.0 Cubic Feet
Fits: 2 Corny Kegs 1 5# CO2 tank
Link: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/how-...gerator-73977/
Note: Requires Thermostat to be relocated

Thanks!
Jon

Are there any mini fridges that can hold 3 cornies and a #5lb tank? I wanted at least 3 on tap but was thinking I'd have to go the keezer route to make that happen. If there are fridges that hold 3 though, I may get to kegging sooner than expected.

Awesome, thanks guys! Now I can be a little broader scraping data from Craigslist.

Any others to add?

Bump on an old Thread.
Re-asking the question: are there any mini fridges that will hold 3 Kegs?
How about 2 @ 5 gal cornies and 1 @2.5 gallon on the hump?

Anyone try this, I've been searching, but to no avail and was unhappy with my last keezer and was hoping for a fridge.

I haven't done this one myself but I've been looking at it.

Looks like other people have managed to get two 5 gallons and one 3 gallon.
