Default Wife says no on Keezer

So I asked the wife if I could turn the chest freezer into a keezer and she said hell no(. Well there goes that idea. I don't have the room to put one in at this point, and don't want to really bottle anymore. So I think for now I am going to get the tap a draft system. found a guy selling a fridge turned into a kegerator for 65 dollars here in klamath falls, OR, on craigslist, but like i said no room for that either dang it. but all well.

You could always do a jockey box... keep the keg warm, cool the beer before it's poured.

Remember its usually easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

my girl originally frowned... So searching through Keezer projects I found one that closely matched our furniture & called her in to show it to her.

I said, "hey, babe... check out this guys shoe cabinet"

Once I heard her say, "oh that looks nice.... but are those beer fauc.."

I cut the bitch off and said 'oh, you likie? good, cause I'm building one, it's for beer, & its going in the kitchen'



actually, I did show her one that matches our stuff pretty closely & she did like it. That gave me the ok to attempt a build and make room for one.

If space is an issue, you could perhaps find a wine cooler fridge - they come in a size that is bigger/taller than a mini fridge - and put a keg inside it with a picnic tap. I have one of those and it works well. It requires some space, but its much smaller than a keezer or regular kegerator.

Is this by any chance a chest freezer full of food? Could that perhaps be the problem?
