Looking to buy a chest freezer

Postby david79thomas » Thu Aug 13, 2009 7:46 am

If anybody knows where I can get a large used chest freezer, please let me know! Also, if somebody has already converted a chest freezer into a kegerator then that would be perfect!
Thanks

Converting it is not too hard, just don't screw anything into the main body of the freezer. Try craigslist for used ones or buy a spanking new 14.5 cubic foot one at Lowe's for about $450.

I've heard/ seen people use some 2x6's and create a "collar" between the lid and body. Setting the hinges on the top of the collar. That way you can have the faucets come out there. Or make a tower come out the top, and even somewhere else not on the freezer at all. I'm so pumped about my new rig! I'm almost done buying crap... I think...

Few truer statements can be made.

I saw that ad on CL, I picked up a chest freezer on CL for $75 a few months back, its a really small one but it holds a carboy or 2 kegs and a bunch of beer so its worked out for me so far.

a 6-footer should be in the neighborhood of 14.5 cubic feet, which translates into about 7 kegs, 8 if one of them is a 3 or 2 1/2-gallon keg.

actually I think that's the 4 foot that you're thinking of. I didn't think they made 6 feet wide freezers anymore. But they have them on Sam's website for delivery. http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/naviga ... =7220#Spec
But the one I'm getting is a really old Frigidaire. I hope it doesn't break during the move!
