Larger Mini Fridge
« on: August 19, 2018, 01:01:08 PM »
It's probably mentioned here somewhere, If so, Please point to it so I can further my investigations...  Walmart has on sale a mini fridge (1 cubic foot?) dirt cheap. They also have 2 ~taller mini fridge's~ 3.1? cubic feet and again, Dirt Cheep.  One has a separate door for the freezer section and the other separate the fridge from the freezer, I'm assuming, via a separate seal but using the same single door.  I have not looked into this as of yet simply because I have lots to do before I even start brewing but would like to get the info...  With these larger Mini-Fridge's has anyone used these before for Corny kegs?  I'm a beginner have brewed and bottled several kits over the course of a couple-three or more years but I have not kegged yet and wont till I have a way to cool them.  I know about the larger floor freezers but I'm in a small apartment and a small fridge sounds far better.  So, Again, Anyone use the taller 3.1 sqft fridges for their corny kegs?

i started out with a small fridge, had to remove the plastic door shelfs, and bend the freezer coil up so the keg could fit. worked great, until i got my fridge to hold four kegs, still use my small fridge for beers and yeast, what kind of kegs are you going to buy? ball lock or pin lock?

Thanks Combat,
  My brother sold me 4 pin lock kegs.  My superviser started brewing last summer and I sold him one which leaves me with three.   If I can have at least one cold keg then I'm happy. So, a bit of modification and it might work...  I'll give it a shot! :-)

just measure the keg and add atleast an inch for the keg connectors.
I have ball lock kegs and i think they are taller then pin lock.
but yeah some modifications which we homebrewers love customizing our stuff  8)
you should be all set. you could even batch prime in the keg so your next keg is carbonated when your other is empty. also dont sell them kegs ;D you will be using them trust me, they seem to empty very quick lol
