Default Kegerator (Discount Tommy)

I have been doing lots of research and reading reviews and it just seems like most of the available name brands are just using cheap parts / equipment. These guys seem like they've got a really nice product. Thoughts?!

Was hoping for some feedback from you guys... any of you own it!?

I'm thinking that you can make one yourself for MUCH less money that will hold MANY more kegs. I mean for that price you can buy a full size fridge or freezer on craigslist, a kegging system, as well as a conversion thermostat.

My experience with discount tommy? I bought a Victoria (corona style) mill from them and the hopper wouldn't even fit onto it. Whenever I want to use it I have to duct tape it onto the mill.

+1

I am not "handy" per se and I built a dope keezer with all new parts, freezer included - for less than this and it holds way more kegs. Do a little research on this site, specifically under the DIY and kegging/bottling tabs and you will soon find you can make something much more functional, less expensive, and have the personal satisfaction of DIY. Good luck!
