Default Co2 in keezer?

Is it better to have your co2 tank in the keezer or outside it?

It doesn't matter. The tank pressure gauge will read low in the keezer. If you keep it outside you'll have to run a high pressure line and drill through the collar. Either way works.

I wouldn't say that most tanks are steel. Most of us prefer aluminum tanks for keggerators etc. But like stated above. It doesn't matter. I keep mine inside just to keep it neat and enclosed.

I am toying with the idea of rigging a quick disconnect to the backside of my keezer lid. as of now I can only have 4 kegs on deck with my 20lb co2 tank inside. or i just make a mini collar so I can get my o2 line into the keezer.
