I just bought a 5 gallon corny keg and I need to find a Kegerator or some type of cooling to get by brews cool enough to force carbonate.
(25" Tall x 9" diameter - 27" tall with the disconnects.)
However I don't have 400 bucks to fork over for one at the moment.
Anyone know a good relatively inexpensive temporary cooler until I can save up for a nice kegerator?
Or even a legit place where I can buy used ones?

I found 2 refrigerators on Craigslist for ~$50 each. One for kegs, one for lagering. Ill probably get a chest freezer eventually but this is perfect for now.

+1 for craigslist. I got my fermentation fridge for $15 on CL. A bunch of the shelves were broken, and it was ugly, but it does what I need it to do.
