    What are your dimensions of your collar? My old keezer died, and was wondering if it was the same dimensions.

    I just purchased this freezer this weekend, and now I saved $15… booya!

    As for fitting kegs, I fit 3 ball locks, with a very tall collar on it.
    It can fit two w/out the collar w/the lid on, with room on the hump for your c02.

      Aaron, how many buckets/carboys can you fit in this freezer? Seems like it could be a good size for a fermentation chamber.
