Default Beermeister find

Picked up an old beat up Beermeister. Trying to figure out how to repair it. The door is broken at the points were the hinge pins attach to it. Pretty flimsy plastic door. Ignore dog snout!



I can't tell if there was some hardware in the door or just a hole in the plastic as both sides are gone. Looks like someone ran out of beer and ripped the door off in a rage.

I can bungee the door closed but it then makes it a garage kegger instead of an indoor unit.

Included in this find -

Widmer tap handle
5lb alum CO2 tank with regulator
Sankey tap

If it was plastic, it could have been holes and pegs. Pegs can be replaced by toothpicks or little screws etc.. The holes can be reformed by building up some epoxy and drilling it out.

What wattage/voltage/amps etc is this thing rated for? How many gallons does it brew up at a time? Just curious.
