I would cut out some circles of the diameter of your cornies and carboys and see how many you can fit. It depends on the compressor hup. Here's a 10 cu. ft. Amana.



The stainless topped corny is a 3 gallon one sitting on the compressor hump. I can fit 6 five gallon cornies in this one, plus 1 three gallon.

It's an Amana AFC1005BFW picked up at Fry's as a Scratch & Dent for $214.

Works like a champ for me, except now I want a second one just to keep chilled kegs and for carbing.

Works great for Carboys too.

A typical ball lock one is 25". You're also going to need a couple extra inches for your lines and stuff

Hmmm. Sounds like it may work then. Can you give the diameter also of one of the kegs? Thanks for your help.

I know its been done to death and I'm often the one bringing it up, but if you want 2 cornies and a 5 lb. tank have you considered the Sanyo 4912? Its a perfect fit and a pretty good looking mini fridge. You can get them pretty cheap new, I got one really cheap off ebay when college kids were busy moving out last year. Just an idea to consider, try a search on here or google if interested, there's a lot of info about it out there.

Matt
