what size chest freezer do you need for 4 to 5 cornie kegs plus a 5 gal carboy?

I can fit 4 corny's in my 7 cu ft chest freezer, 6 if it has a collar and two are on the hump.  I'd probably go with a 14 cu ft chest freezer because you know you'll get more kegs in the future...resistance is futile.

My everyday kegorator isn't much to look at, but here's my party bar:

Home Depot, Michael's, and Ebay... One piece at a time.

Let me guess...a chest freezer is inside the cabinet and Perlick faucets for tapping?

No, a cold plate in the coffin box. The whole thing comes apart and folds up. I made it for big outdoor parties.

Thanks guys. I just wanted something a little nicer than the trash can or cooler sytems everyone uses.

A real beauty! The neighborhood no doubt knows where to hang when that thing is setup!
Just brew it...

This is a pretty plain Jane kegerator, but I just finished making this copper draft tower and wanted to show it off a little bit.  The tower started life as a piece of scrap 3" copper pipe and with some creativity, luck, and many hours sanding, became what you see here.  I toyed with the idea of making myself a drip tray, but after the time I put into making the tower itself I am just going to buy one...

Damn, Lonnie!  That's very close to what I'd like to do with mine!  Nice work.

Thanks! This was in BYO about 6 years ago, back when I was trying to promote the idea of wrapping a chest freezer in wood. Crazy. I gave up the idea because it never really caught on!  :D

My wife and I still eat here at this dinner bar every night. It is still running strong and holds six kegs, although I can never keep six kegs in it it seems.
