Refrigerator big enough?
« on: May 07, 2020, 11:48:09 pm »
Hi community, I'm new here. I am looking to get a compact refrig to convert to a kegerator. I found one on CL but its 3.6 cf. Is that big enough for a pin lock corny and 5 lb co2 tank? Thanks in advance.

And If I were to put a Johnson controller on my portable beer fridge, what would it do to the freezer temps? My hope is that it will stop being a freezer and hold the temps the fridge does.

Dunno about the size, but you'll have more room if you keep the CO2 outside.

See if you can find the interior length, width, and height of the fridge from the seller.  It needs to be at least 25" high on the interior (30" would be better).

What Denny said; drill a hole in the side of the fridge for a CO2 line - no sense keeping that tank of gas cold when you could use the extra space for a second corny keg.
