I'm looking to get a freezer to hold atleast 2 kegs and a 6 1/2 gal carboy. What is a good model for that or where can I find one? I already have the plug in thermostat control.

Check out this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/sizi...ny-kegs-75449/

My guess is that a 5 c.f. freezer would fit the bill

I found my chest freezer on craigslist for $50. I scanned craigslist daily for about a month before I found the right one. I ended up with a nice 10.2. It will hold 5 kegs, a carboy and a 5# CO2 tank. You can check out the build link in my signature.

I started a database of inside dimensions of freezers here:

It might help a little.
If you go with something that not in this (short) list, please post the inside dimensions and model number of the freezer you go with so I can add it!

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!
