Yea I managed to get 4 empties in there, when I first got everything. I’ll be filling a fourth up tonight and that will be going in the freezer. I’ll take pics.

I don’t think I’ll be able to get them out when they’re full though. Also I’m thinking about shaving some of the rubber off the kegs for more clearance.


a taller collar would easily fit more kegs. But since I'm going to have the faucets on the top of the freezer (coffin box style) I didn't want to add more height with a really tall collar.

How tall will the coffin be, or rather the height of the faucets from the top of the keezer without a collar? 12"? 20"?
With an 8" collar and 12" height above the top of keezer it would put the faucet handle at around 53" + height of the wheeled base.

I had planned on an 8" collar but now you have me thinking it would add too much height?

I'll be doing the same thing. I'm looking into a way to put the wheels on so that the height increase from them is minimal (current thought is to attache them to a thin sheet of metal that will be attached to the top of the wheel frame). I'm also considering using pin-lock kegs (converted to ball lock) on the hump so the collar doesn't have to be as tall, I just need to take a bunch of measurements to make sure it'll all fit.

Now back to the subject at hand, great start on the keezer!

The wheels I got add 2.5 inches, the frame the freezer sits on adds 1.5 inches.

The lid I made is 4.25 inches total.

Planned coffin will be 14 inches tall, but faucets will probably be around 11in high.

So in total the faucets are going to sit about 19.25in higher than the opening of the freezer when it's on flat ground.

That makes it just around 53" off the ground = 4'5" Seems like a real bar to me.

I like the coffin style b/c the collar tap handle method to me always seemed too low but I have yet to actually use on in person so I could be, and probably am, WAAY off.

Thanks! You saved me a lot of pain and suffering with your sketchup files. They've helped me immensely, and as you can see I didn't deviate very far from your plans.

Specialized, I already tried. A fourth Korney won't work. That's why I put a 3 gal on the shelf to the right of the interior. It works great.

Hey if you haven't got rid of that 4th 5 gal you might want to check this







It is a really tight fit. The last corny wouldn't go all the way down. So i propped it up with a scrap 2x4.
