We still haven't decided if we want to let the copper patina naturally, or if we should polish it up and then seal it. I'm leaning towards the polished look.

Do you happen to know/remember what the brand of antique mini fridge that you gave to your friend was? It looks pretty cool.

It was made by Indesit which I believe is an Italian company. It looked like maybe it was made in the 50's or 60's, but it's hard to tell for sure. There is an appliance guy near me that specializes in retro applicances, and he has the coolest old Philco fridge from the 40's that I would love to convert into a kegerator. I'm trying to talk my brewing partner into buying it.

Thanks. Yeah, converting something like that or finding a cool old mini fridge like the other would be awesome!

Haven't really had any time to finish the keezer, but I did at least get it functional for an upcoming party. Here are pics of the first pours in it's temporary home at my Dads (where the party's being held). Hefe on the left, and Black IPA on the right. Still need to balance the lines and install the tower cooling fan before the party. Got some porter and IPA that should be ready to go in soon to make use of all four taps. I hope the polish the tower, re-shape the tower base rings, pour the bar-top epoxy, and get 4 perlick faucets next month. Still not sure what I'm going to do for tap handles. The yeast vials full of malt (idea stolen from here) work fine for now.

Awesome! It is beautiful as is, but a little more cleaning up will make it amazing!

It's a Widmere Hefe clone which was my compromise for the BMC drinkers who'll be at the party. I was just seeing if they poured halfway decent, and I'm sure that was mostly the yeast from the bottom of the keg.
