Is there a way to get a corny keg to work on its side? I have a small freezer that opens like a fridge, but the middle rack has a cooling element in it.

If you force carbonate using CO2 instead of natural carbonation, to prevent yeast sludge, and bend the fluid pick up tube all the way to the side, a Corny ought to work mechanicaly on it's side. I don't know if the fact that at 1/2 keg you would have a large surface of beer exposed to the gas....so make sure you use CO2, not an air pump, to serve it.

All you have to do is remove the tube and bend it so it is touching the side of the keg. You might have to shorten it slightly.

Thanks. I haven't bought my keg system yet but was wondering about that freezer.

I guess I'd have to mark what 'side' is up too, haha.
