How to mount my external CO2 tank
1 Attachment(s)
First Post!
I've gotten a lot of great information from HBT.
I recently converted an Oster 5.0 refigerator and want to keep my CO2 tank on the outside.
My question is, how do people mount their CO2 tanks on DIY kegerators?

There's a little more info in this thread here

You would pretty much run the line through one of the sides. If you have one regulator to use for all your kegs it would be easier to run the CO2 line to the inside of the fridge and then split the gas with a manifold. You could use something like this 4 Port CO2 air manifold with 1/4" flare fittings, shutoff valves and check valves: www.kegkits.com Or if you want to get creative you could make one with parts from HD/Lowes/McMaster.com

Nice job! You may just want to set your tank behind it on the floor with some extra co2 line coiled up so when you need to adjust or refill your not moving the kegorater and sloshing beer around.

Put some stirrups on it. Otherwise you might fall off...

Oh you meant mount it to the fridge?
