"I really couldn't say. I considered going the keezer route my self, top loading seems to be an advantage because you can take out any keg without moving any others. I didn't go that way because I wanted the extra height to get the taps out…"

"Thanks Cain, I have 2 kegs, they are both 220mm diameter. So I figure 520-440 is 80 and then maybe 50mm for the fridge wall! Your right that is tight...but maybe doable? Then squeeze the other keg in and the co2 bottle... Problem is they don't…"

"I Have both and filling bottles is definitely better with the beer gun, but if im filling a growler for the night then I just put a bit of hose on the stout tap and works pretty well and saves cleaning the beer gun."
