Found a 20 cu ft chest freezer today for $100. Already have completed my keezer build a few months back so time for a fermentation chamber/cold storage for the extra kegs. Testing out the size I've already managed to get 6 carboys/brew buckets in it and 3 kegs and there's still plenty of room for another 3 kegs plus room for hop/yeast storage in the basket over the compressor and 2-3 six packs on top of the compressor.

I'm feeling like a kid at Christmas.

I was stoked when I scored a $25 pre-cut Sanke...after months of patient searching. Congrats!

I search CL at least twice daily. I haven't seen it, yet, but my wife picked up a 24 cu ft chest freezer for me for $200. All the keezer components are en route in Brown trucks. They'll be waiting for me whne I get home in a couple weeks

Congrats! You'll love it. You should be able to store 12 five gallon kegs and 2 three gallon cornies or other stuff in it.

Too funny Ed. I use blue painter tape to ID my kegs as well! But where are all the beer lines? Mine looks like a rats nest in there.

If I get to the point where I need to keep 12 kegs in cold storage then I am A) making too much beer or B) not drinking enough. Hopefully 8 filled at a time should be enough (4 active in keezer and 4 in this one). Maybe add a couple others if I do some lagering in the kegs.

Wow...are you doing a collar and taps on the 24cu ft? that is going to be a monster if so!

Now a few corneys and a sanke or two...that might be bad ass.
