Well the fun factor and the fact you can say "I made this" are cool. But, to buy a commercial kegger that would hold five 1/6 kegs (cornie size) would cost way more than 500 bucks. I have a kenmore keggerator and love it. But, it only holds two cornie kegs. I built the keezer because, well....I wanted MORE!! LOL

I learned a lot about kegging by building my keezer. I also learned a lot about creative financing.

The real secret is to stop keeping track of what you spend. Never, ever go back add it all up. Burn the receipts so your wife never sees them. It helps if you can sneak some of your purchases in under the guise of a 'real' home project. That way the cost gets sucked into a new floor or something and it doesn't seem so bad.

Delusion is a good thing!

Here's a picture of mine. According to my calculations it only cost $24 to build:
