I have a 5lb co2 tank now and am thinking of swapping it for a 10lb tank. I don't know if it will fit in my kegerator so i'm wondering what the size difference is between the two?

Here, this is for aluminum, but steel will be close.

I love the sound of an airlock bubbling in the morning. It sounds like.....VICTORY.
