Okay before I drill a hole in my fridge, do I need to keep CO2 outside or is in the fridge okay? Drawbacks and advantages?

out for more space in your fridge... in if you dont want to drill in side of fridge ( be careful there could be coolant lines in the side of the fridge )

In the fridge the first night your CO2 is in there you will notice a significant drop in pressure, this is fine and normal. If you warm the keg back up it will rise again

Inside the freezer = one less keg. Outsize the freezer = unsightly CO2 tank sitting next to your freezer (not everyone cares about this, but mine is in my living room, so I opted with option 1).

My tank is taller than my keg and lines so it will probably end up outside the freezer due to lack of headspace in the freezer.

And again careful where you drill.
