Default Just another kegerator build

This one will have 6 perlic taps. Thanks everyone for their ideas. Her is my contribution.

I haven't stained or plumbed it. I have a ways to go to finish. There is WAY more money in these than you think when you first start out!

I am open to suggestions

Looking good!

I just finished my own mini-kegerator build with a two-perlick tower rig. You're so right about the hidden costs of these things. Got the fridge for about 200 but then you tack on all the kegs/CO2/faucets/tools/etc and it really adds up!

Are you going to insulate that PVC pipe or just blast cold air through? Or just leave it be?

Don't sell yourself short with that title. Very nice. Especially like the tile and fancy trim. I live across the mountain, might have to drop by for a brew when its all done. Keep up the good work.

Come on over bulldogbrewhaus, I sometimes work in Stoney creek and waynesboro. I also go to CAMRA (Charlottesville beer group)I am going to use a combination of regular wall insulation and spray insulation to insulate the coffin box.

I am thinking cherry or Mahogany, any suggestions. Definitely going to clear coat it when I am done.

I'd also like to know if it is plumbed or if its forced air through and through
