Bout to take the trip down to Memphis to purchase my foam board for a fermentation chiller. I would like to size it to accommodate corny kegs as well in the future. Could someone please give me the height and diameter of the standard corny kegs (5 gallon if there are variations) ?

Thanks much!

Neil

Ball lock kegs are the taller of the two types (pin lock is the other). If you follow Ken Schwartz' original directions for fabrication of the chiller, the ball lock keg will fit fine height-wise - however, you won't have very much vertical room if you want to attach air locks or other things that stick up above the keg, probably only an inch or two.

Prosit!
