Setting up my first keezer and am struggling to figure out whats the best sized chest freezer to get. I'm probably down to a 5 cu ft and a 7 cu ft.

How much more will I gain.

How much can a 5 vs a 7 hold.

I'm going to have a 5lb CO2 tank and I'd like to have a minimum of (3) 5 gallon kegs. How big should I get?

If you do a search on the site there's a post from awhile back with different sized freezers and the number of cornys they hold.

I can put two kegs and one 5lb co2 in my 7cft. If I put the co2 on the ledge in the freezer I could put 3 kegs with room. Got my freezer at Sam's club for ~190.00.

A 10 footer will hold 6 ball lock kegs comfortably. For every other size you can imagine, check out this thread...

Cheers!
