What sort of info are you looking for? If you're wondering how many kegs you can fit in it, put out some cardboard circles and test it out! You own one, right? Post your findings (and pictures) so others can use that info!

Gotcha. Well, with almost 20 cubic feet, it's safe to say you can fit many kegs in it. Looking at the first page, people with ~15 cu.ft. freezers can fit 8-9 ball locks. Since your freezer is ~33% larger, you'll be able to fit MANY kegs!

So I am thinking that the GE at Home Depot is a good buy. I was recently given 2 corny kegs, and I was thinking it would be nice to have 2 guest taps. It seems that I have more consumption than time to brew as of late. I contacted some brew pubs and brewers, and it seems that some do 1/6 barrels. My question is, will the 7.0 cu ft ge at home depot fit 2 corny kegs and 2 1/6 barrels? I may wind up going and measuring, but if it would save me a trip to the store I thought I'd post.

Not sure what size 1/6 barrels are, but I actually bring my cornies to local breweries and then will normally fill them up for you. Last time I got a nice oatmeal stout for $60 for 5 gallons. They just have a coupler that goes from a sanke connection to ball lock and transfer from a keg into the corny. Works well when my brewing can't keep up with my drinking!

In Georgia we have third party sales laws that make that impossible. Beer must be purchased through a third party (distributer, liquor store, grocery or connivence store). It sucks because I am less than 10 miles from the Terrapin brewery.

Must be nice living in a state that allows that...

I just picked up the GE a couple of weeks ago. It should be plenty big enough if you put the CO2 on the hump. I put my CO2 on the hump and had to turn the gauges a little to get the lid to close until I can get my collar built.

Awesome thread. Joined just to say thanks. Scheming for a some-day keezer build.

Also, noticed the Holiday 5 cu ft is on sale at Lowe's for $169. Grab a mover's coupon from the Post Office (10% off) or Military ID and it's $152. Looks to be the same one from the first page. Edit: Not the same one from the front page... this is the one that only holds 2 Cornys.
