    !!! I bought a deep freeze yesterday 60bucks. The inside of the "big" section (the section without the corner used up for the compressor and such) is 28x29x(I cant remember how high) inches. The bottom right corner has a section used up for the compressor and such but its like its about 12x12x28 inches. And still has like 12x19x28inches above it thats open. So its a pretty good sized freezer. I think its like 14-16 cubic feet all together. I'm gonna get a temp controller and make it a kegerator. I will post the build with pics along the way.

    At least three I'd guess. Probably four.

    the bottom square diameter is 28x29ish inches. kegs should be 9in diameter right? that means i should be able to get 6-9 in there right?

    I think you're right. I was thinking kegs were 12", but that's not right at all.

    not sure how many cubic feet for certain. but those are the dimensions. that section is at least 12.x cubic feet so im guessing 14-16 cubic feet.

    I think the 13.something cuft ones are the most common for kegerator builds. I would guess at least 6 kegs.

    well by the dimensions given if a keg is 9in in diameter then 9 should fit. its at least 28x28x28 which means even if they were 9 inch squares they should fit.

    dunno. I just found the dimensions of some kegs online. it said 9in diameter. It may not be right...

    Oh. Maybe I'm wrong? I know it's shocking, but it happens once in a while.

    and cases of canned beer. Would it be better to keep the co2 in the fridge or out?

    If he builds a collar to elevate the lid otherwise this will be dead space.

    Agreed. I like the ability to mount the gas distribution/shut offs on that surface inside in the back also.
