It will hold 5 corny kegs and has a stainless prep table top. Al you would have to do is drill for a tower. I have no idea what it will go for, but I talked to the maintenance man at Sports USA (where it came from) and he said it worked when they replaced it. And the thing about True, is everyone works on them....easy to repair. Anyway, someone should get this.

Reelale, I saw that sucker last week and thought it would be perfect for someone on the forum. I have a True TDD-2 and love it. If the compressor runs, it is worth buying. It doesn't even have to cool, just run. The only expensive part of these units is buying a new compressor, but with patience, good used ones can be found for cheap. My recommendation is to install service valves on the front of the compressor as soon as you get it. This will allow you to have it charged with freon without having to move the unit or disturb the compressor. It will save you time in labor costs as well.

Keep in mind though that these industrial units do run a bit louder than your normal home refrigerators. It doesn't bother me or MrsDonkeys, but it might annoy some people.

I didn't end up making it out to the auction. Anyone know what it went for?

I could meet at the Ale House at noon Saturday unless I get called in to work.

I had assumed we were talking about Carolina Ale House. Prices are more reasonable there in my experience also.

I don't know what it went for either. I saw it last week, but had to pop out to Oklahoma on e-leave this week. I'm gone til Monday, so you guys have fun at the Ale house.

I'll show. I see you put Mash House on the FB page. It doesn't make much difference to me, but we need to choose one for sure. I would think a facebook group would be better than a page also. That way we can have a group list instead of just a number of likes. I think it makes you able to send invites out to the group for an event also instead of just having it show up in their news feed and hoping they see it.

Yea, I figured mash house has a pretty good line up of beers and micro trumps factory beer any day. We'll talk about the FB thing tomorrow, it's something Cory suggested that I shot from the hip on while at work. Looking forward to meeting some folks. I'll be bringing some of my brews if anyone wants to take. Details to follow on FB page.

Joined the FB page, but can't make it to this outing. Preparing for Thanksgiving II tomorrow. I'll keep my eye out for next time though!
