Title says it all - has anyone built a kegerator or keezer that will fit 2x 50L kegs?

I’m having trouble. I think a really tall upright fridge/freezer with stacked kegs will nearly work, but even the tallest ones seem about 200mm too short. Chest freezers seem to be a possibility, but most are too shallow and you also need a very very wide one I think.

Any advice appreciated, I’ve done some scouring on the web and I haven’t found photos of any DIYs with 2x50L.

You probably need an ex commercial under bench option. Keep an eye on the auctions.
A chesty will break your back, and you will need a winch.

Did your research show you the collars people add to chest freezers?
You’ll need to modify the freezer to allow for the beer posts and lines etc.
I bought a 700l chest freezer. Could easily hold 4 50L kegs. It holds about 10 19L kegs I think*

*could be wrong. Been a while since I did the test.

I've got a Haier HR6CF307 306L chesty as my Keezer
I'm pretty damn sure it'd fit 2 x 50L kegs
Can someone give me a height (with the connector) and diameter of their 50L kegs and I'll measure it tonight

If someone doesn't get in before me I'll measure mine tonight and let you know, I have a 550L keezer and can fit 4 x 50L kegs in from memory.

I'm really interested in this too.

I want 3 x 50l kegs really, and a cheapie freezer.

Freezers seem like rocking horse shot at the moment though.

I've shot a few things in my life, but never a rocking horse!

But agreed, all the doomsday peppers bought them on mass. Give it 3 or 4 months and gumtree will be flooded with them.

Try living out west (and we're not even THAT far west), they're always rare and used fridges and freezers are expensive as FARK for some reason
They were cheap as chips back in Coffs

Ha.

Should have read "rocking horse shit" of course.

but what are these "doomsday peppers' you mentioned?

If they are the next evolution of ghost chillies, where do I get some?

I'd have to check
I definitely could get seven, with 2 rows of 3 and 1 offset between the rows
But there might not be quite enough floorspace for 8
I didn't go high enough on my collar to fit anything on the hump because I wanted to just keep it for bottles, glasses, etc
