Disappointment for me. Opened mine up last weekend and UPS dented it to hell. Dents on all sides, and the corner where the controls are is crushed.

Gonna have to take it to my local HD this weekend to exchange.

BTW, are those 2.5g cornies bigger in diameter? I have 4 ball locks on the floor right now.
Yep, they are slightly larger in diameter.

Got mine switched out at HD last night. No huge deal other than they couldn't figure out how to ring it out correctly. They wanted to return it and have me re-buy it at the higher current price, which clearly wasn't going to work for me. It took about three of those eggheads to finally figured it out.

I was able to fit the freezer and box in the back of my Pontiac Vibe. Not bad for a 4 cylinder hatchback.

I dry fitted four ball locks on the floor, and it appears that six might even fit if the CO2 tank is located outside and a decent height collar is used. Anyone built this with six yet?

I built my collar tall enough to fit 2 on the hump, but one will be hanging off a bit... i'd have to build some kind of support to prevent it from falling if the other kegs are removed. It should fit fine, though. I like the clean look of the tank inside.

Thanks for the info digi2k.

I took apart my controller today and screwed the coarse adjustment screw all the way in to set it at warm as possible. Set the freezer to 1 on the fine adjustment (warmest), and stuck my thermometer in a cup of water.

Six hours later, and it got a thin layer of ice and registers 32-33F Tweaked it again, seeing if I can get somewhere north of 35F, but I might need an external controller since this doesn't want to get warm enough.

Got a voivemail this morning, my GE will be delivered by 1pm today. I'll use that as my new fermentation chamber, and keep my 5cf GE for conditioning cornie kegs. Woot!

Just an FYI I just picked up this model from Home Depot for 115. All clearance is 20% off through tomorrow and this falls under that I had to go to a second Home Depot but they had plenty

If you are talking half barrels then no. Unless you do have a collar and put one on the hump with a stand.

Dammit, the forum ate my reply!

Anyway, short version:
This freezer *will* fit 6 ball locks (I got a few more kegs recently). Four on the floor, and two on the hump. You'll need a slight bit of a stand (about 4" wide, same height as the hump) for the second one on the hump. Your CO2 would probably need to be outside the freezer.

I'm going to build mine with 4 as I planned, but keep my options open to expand to 6 if necessary in the future.
