How many cornie kegs will fit in one of these kegerators?



Would it be possible to fit four inside?

I'd say you'd get two in that one. It looks about the same size as mine and that's what I can fit.

If the door was moved out a bit, could four 5 gallons fit? Or, two 5 gallons and two 3 gallons?

Not with mine, and I'm assuming the same for the one you're asking about. The big problem is the hump in the lower rear of the kegerator. Another problem is that the cornies are too wide and can't sit exactly side by side in my kegerator. My opinion is that if you want a kegerator for more than 2 kegs it would be better to get either a full size fridge or convert a freezer. that's what I've been thinking about doing down the road.

I've got a fridge that holds six kegs now, but SWMBO wants it out of the garage.

Bummer. Do you have any space in the basement or anywhere else for it?

Naw, it has to go into my little office, upstairs. I'm kicking around ideas, like a keezer, and saw this rig on CL.

You might be able to get 3 in there if you take off the door and extend the sides a bit. I'm just hesitant to say you could get more than that in there.

I have a Haier kegerator that will hold 3 cornies. The hump is only in the rear corner allowing for it. might want to look for one of those. I think the Kenmore one will hold 3 as well.

I think those will fit 2 5 gal cornys and perhaps one or two smaller 3 gal back on the compressor hump with the gas tank outside.

I have an older Sears Kenmore kegerator that has the compressor hump on top and is bit taller overall. I found, mostly by luck, that with the gas tank outside I can fit 4 5 gal cornys in it as long as the back 2 under the compressor hump are the 1 handle tops. I plumbed up the CO2 to go throught the side and put a 4 way gas manifold in the extra space in the top front, then added a 2 faucet extension to my 2 faucet tower and now I happily have a 4 tap kegerartor. I guess I'm just lucky...
