Does your wife drink any soda (seltzer water or pop)? You can always install a tap just for that so she can enjoy something from the keezer.

My wife let me put mine right beside the kitchen table. I don't even have to get out of my seat for a refill!

I don't know where you are, but right now I have 4 kegs chilling outside on a 3rd floor deck with a tarp over them. It doesn't get cold enough here to freeze them so outside is a great option for the winter. I have a little bar fridge that fits one keg but I always have a few full kegs that I have to store at ambient temps. In the summer you can either drink it warm or fill up a growler and put it in the freezer for a half hour. Its not as good as a keezer but better than bottling.

I got a very old kegerator (off craigslist) and rebuilt it, it was suppose to go into a back room out of sight, but once I re-finished the oak top, and changed out the crusty old chrome 2 tap tower for a all Brass 3 tap tower and showed it to her, she said thats to nice to put in the back room, its now in the dining room, sometimes they just need to see it.

Cheers

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.
Never ask for permission. Do it then ask for forgiveness.

My wife got sick of me storing bottles all over the kitchen. Kegging by annoyance ftw.

I don't ask my wife anything, I tell her how it's going to be..... It works as long as I don't spend too much money.

I just don't know why I never thought of this (the growler idea)

I'm going to go buy some kegs ASAP after Christmas...finally!

Amen to that.

I picked up two brand new in the box GE 7 cubic footers for 100 dollars each. One is already fermenting 10 gallons of Lager and the other is scheduled to become a kegerator after the first of the year. But wow I am pricing my start-up for 4 kegs at about 800 dollars. This little hobby of mine is getting expensive.
