I believe if you buy it online they will deliver it to your door (even bring it in for you). I wanted to get it in Delaware (home of tax free shopping) thats why I questioned if it was in store. Called and they told me they would have to order it. Still think im goin to pull the trigger on this one for a lagering fridge.

Ordered the GE 7.0 from HomeDepot when they dropped the price down to match Wal-Mart. Can't wait, should be here next week! Hopefully it isn't tooo tight of a fit to get 4 in.

Now just to start on my keezer build, going to do a full cabinet with coffin on top. Anyone know of a good thread that has a complete materials list? And what's the best place online to get all the supplies.

So sad I missed the Maytag 14.8 for $299 at home depot, it is still $359, not bad.
I have been through 2 donated ones so far, not going the used, donated, c-list route. I want something new.
Are there any good deals now?

Where do you guys ferment if you only have kegs in the keezer? My 25y.o. GE went out and I can't find another 7 cu.ft. that can fit 2 corny keys and a 6 1/2gal carboy.

I've got a separate fermentation chamber since my keezer is kept at 36F. WAY too cold for a regular fermentation, and I didn't want to use a fermwrap at the time.

I don't know if you can find it anymore, but the Magic Chef 7.2 CuFt could fit a 6.5gal carboy and two ball lock kegs on the hump if you added a collar. Mine has a 2x8 collar and could theoretically hold 6 ball locks. I've got four pin locks and 1 ball lock pretty comfortably in mine.

One question. Do the corny kegs fit without a collar?

On the first page of this thread, it shows the height of the keg as 23", but the specs on the freezer show a depth of 22". Most of the freezers seem to show a 22" depth. Am I missing something?

22" depth is front to back (external). You can fit (very tight squeeze) 4 ball lock kegs with qd's attached. They are close to the lid but ok. You will need to do a collar if you want to put a fifth keg on the compressor hump.
