I don't know anything about that model fridge. How many cornies will it hold?
The Sanyo 4912 will hold two corny kegs.

Sure,

I picked up the fridge on sale at Best Buy for $130 (with a gift card and coupon), and my parents got me the tap tower ($130) for Christmas.

Excellent. Another successful conversion. I think this will probably be the route I go, once I get into a house and have more room. Thanks for posting it!

Aww man, this has really made me want to get into kegging. SWMBO says we don't have room for a kegerator

I bet I can find room for one though

It's very small. No bigger than a dorm fridge! Go for it!
