Yup that's it.

You will need a collar though to get the second one in there as it would need to sit on the hump. I was also able to talk them down a little on the price I got it for 139.99 new.

You may want to look into the magic chef 5.0 cu one as it might allow you fit 2 kegs on the bottom without a collar. http://www.lowes.com/pd_75729-33112-...zer&facetInfo=

I would have gone with this one if it would have fit between the stairs an wall. Because I think it may be possible to fit 4 kegs in it. But don't hold me to that.

Hey man,

It's funny that you mention that. SWMBO and I checked out Lowe's this afternoon and found the "Holiday" 5 cu ft one that you linked above. I almost bought it on the spot but I came home and did some more research first and ended up ordering it with free delivery from the local store.

Turned around after that and ordered 2 ball lock kegs, CO2, regulator, temp controller, etc, etc, from Keg Connection.

I think that freezer will be perfect because, like you said, it can fit two kegs without a collar (I measured) so I can use it for cooling my two kegs immediately and work on the collar as time allows. Perfect for me because I have a big camping trip with the boys coming up in a little over a month so now I will be able to bring chilled, kegged homebrew with me which will be great.

Sorry to hijack your thread but I appreciate the insight

Nice, I have a GE set up just like yours. 3 kegs is definitely the max with the CO2 tank, but for me that's plenty of beer on tap at one time!
I actually bought it originally for a fermentation fridge, but I quickly started using it for kegs and now I don't have a fermentation fridge anymore. They aren't as good for fermenting because its such a pain to lift carboys out of them.
I got mine from home depot, I don't remember how much it was, but they are pretty cheap.

I am going to convert this exact freezer into a 3 tap keezer. Would you be able to arrange the kegs so that you could fit 3 ball lock cornies and a 5lb CO2 tank inside?

I was hoping to be able to fit two cornies on the bottom and then build a collar to fit the other corny and the CO2 tank on the hump but it looks like I won't have room for that from your pics?

Sorry about getting back to you late, we were out of town. The inside measures 15" X 22" and it is 18" deep on the hump. The hump is like 15" X 9" and at the deepest spot it is about 26" deep.

Hope that helps.

I've got a ton of MDF lying around, any issues with it yet?

I was trying to figure out your gas setup, I think I got it, it just threw me off. One line going from gauge manifold directly to keg, then one going from gauge manifold to block manifold and distributing same psi totwo kegs.

Hey if you had some way for space you can always take the plug out of the block and add a valve/gashose/quick coupler and you would have a forth. I just did this to my two way manifold yesterday. I had two running of one gauge and just changed it to run three kegs off of same manifold.

The MDF is holding up fine as of now, I'd say go for it if you got it. I did paint it with an exterior paint to seal it. The exterior paint will flex a little more and has more of a mold inhibitor in it which sounded right for the application. I would seal it someway if you decide to use it though.

Thanks for the tip BARBQ you got it right. I will definitely go that route when I upgrade my freezer and add another keg. Right now its working perfectly as I'am able to force carb one keg and keep the other 2 at serving which saves me from futzing with the gauges too much. But thanks for the tip.

Dave
