I have a couple Maytag 14 CF that work great. One for fermenting/crashing the other for carbing/lagering & bottles. We use a 7CF Holiday from HD that holds four cornies. All 3+ years old and running strong with dual stage Ranco or single Johnson Control.Does the holiday hold four without a collar?
I just dug out the model number of my ferm freezer and I think it could hold 5, maybe 6, ball locks on the floor. Maybe I should promote it to keezer and look for a new ferm freezer. Any idea if two 6 gallon better bottles would fit without a collar?
No, I had to add a collar to the Holiday to fit four cornies, one sits on the condenser shelf. If I had it to do over I would have made my keezer out of a 14CF. Not that much more floor space but much more versatility, options for configuration and collar optional. I do believe one could fit two six gallon better bottles into the Holiday or most other 7 CF models. I would take a couple empty ones down to Lowe's/HD and test to be sure.
