Fridge for cornies

Post by helmetHeid » Mon Dec 17, 2018 7:32 pm

Hey,

Can anyone recommend a make of under-counter sized fridge I could fit two Cornelius kegs into? Doesn't need to fit the gas bottle too, just the kegs. It's for a little local pub I'm doing the odd keg for now

Been looking around this last week or so but not had any luck. It's in the UK if that help with recommending models.

Ta!

Hotpoint RLA undercounter. There are a couple of slightly different model numbers.

Nice one, thanks, that looks perfect.

Then have you just cut a small hole in the door for the beer line?

I cut a hole in the side for all the lines. I keep the gas bottle on the outside.

If you go small enough you can get through the water drain point.

You can nearly always utilise the drain point at the bottom back of the fridge for inputting the gas. If the hole isn't big enough you can easily and safely expand it without worry (certainly on Beko fridges I've done anyway) as they are generally located in a plastic area so going through with a drill to expand is easy and its pretty unlikely if its only a little bit that you're going to hit anything bad. You only need to get one line through for the gas as you can split it inside the fridge and that being the case the drain hole will probably be big enough to take it.
