I think this is the same freezer I have. It will comfortably fit 4 pin lock kegs (one on the hump, with a collar) and I do not know if 4 ball locks will fit on the floor, but kinda doubt it.

as a general question to those who use chest freezers, how does storing bottles of homebrew work out in it? id like to invest in one of these, but i feel that i'd miss the convenience of being able to open the door from the front and have racks of bottles. how have you worked around this? (also im sorry if there is another thread pertaining more directly for this, but if there is i couldn't find it)

Only three on the floor. I have a 7.2 and that one can fit 4 on the floor, but it's a tight fit..

Seriously resisting the urge to go buy one or two of these right this second. (Fermentation chamber & possibly a keezer.) Why, oh why, do I keep coming back to HBT? Seriously, I all ready have to make over 300 more six packs to get back in the black!

Maybe I'll wander down to measure how many carboys one could hold...that won't hurt, right?

Don't think 4 will fit on the floor, but def one on the hump. These are in stores (why I posted this) while supplies last for pre-black-friday. I sold 3 for the keezer specific reason today. They had me kinda run the show since I know the ins and outs due to my brew hobby. Go my friends... and enjoy.

I stick bottles in mine, in the gaps between the kegs. It is less than convenient (especially since I usually store stuff on top of my keezer) With the four kegs and CO2 tank in there, I bet I could also store a case of loose bottles.

Anyone know the internal dimensions of the Magic Chef freezer? I plan on splitting 5 gallon batches between bottles and the 2.5 gallon stackable kegs. Is the freezer tall enough for the stackable kegs since two stacked (29") is taller than a 5 gallon corny?

I may have to look at this freezer tomorrow after work.

These look identical to the GE and other brands currently available - other than subtle differences in the lid design and controller.
