Chest freezer's inside dimensions vary quite a bit, best bet is to take a tape measure with you, and don't forget the dimensions of your cornies!

I can fit 12 cornies in my 20 cu. ft. Frigidare, plus two more 3 or 2.5 gallon cornies. Max capacity is 66 gallons of necatar of the gods.

Cut out some cardboard circles with an 8.5" diameter and take them to the store. Then you'll know for sure.

I got one from Best Buy, 14.9 CU and it fits 8 kegs and a 5# tank in the bottom section.

The area over the motor fits a case of bottles plus. You can stack soda cans 2 high, but I just lay water bottles on top of the kegs and they fit fine.
