Just like it says, is your CO2 inside or outside of your keezer or kegerator? I have seen both ways in the build department and most commercial kegerators have it inside, soooo?

I keep mine on the outside for three reasons.

1. Easier to adjust and use while cleaning kegs.
2. More accurate gauge readings
3. Can fit more beer in keezer.

Mine is outside in a cabinet so I have more room for beer.

Inside. My keezer and my kegerator are in the family room. Keeps the SWMBO happy. Therefore I'm happy.

+ the dial gauges rust and so will the tank unless you opt for a much more expensive aluminum one (my 20# was $40.00 and $24 swap outs)

Tank on the inside on the hump...thought about putting it outside for ease when changing out kegs and the bottle itself.
Makes it more aesthetically pleasing to keep it inside the fridge IMO. No ghetto rigs and no hoses/wires/unicorns hanging outside the fridge.

Cheers!

mine is on the inside because i can just squeeze it in there and couldn't fit another corny in it's place

my keezer is in the dining room and I have a very active and curious 10month old at home so it's not feasible to put it outside for now but I would like to eventually so I can add a dual pressure regulator without having to add on a high pressure line to separate the reg from the co2 tank (there is no room inside to add it)
