Default Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time...

When I moved my C02 tank outside my kegerator, I thought I would be SOO HAPPY! haha NOT! I guess I didn't realize how much I would be moving / scooting my kegs around to get to the back of the fridge to change pressures etc etc.. but it's becoming a pain in the arse!

Looks like I'll be moving the gauges outside as well and drilling 2 more holes unless someone can offer a better suggestion..

here's the original video..

yeah I thought about trying to find a bigger fridge but reckon I'll just work with what I've got.. I REALLY hate having those gauges on the side of the fridge outside but oh well.. maybe I can box around 'em or something haha

leave it on the outside.

you should just set the correct PSI for that style and only server that style out of that tap.

You do realise there are 3 more wall surfaces inside that fridge, right?

Thus, there is some square footage within that would not require you to futz with kegs to reach a guage.

That said, I have 6 taps, 8 kegs in the keezer, 3 guages, and had to adjust them,

ONCE! Been kegging now going on 4 years.

well I struggle with that when I first bought the setup.. even though I'm an IPA guy I still want the option if I change styles..

I think I still want it outside though since I'm brewing more and it's a pain to get to to purge a new keg and seal it etc..

ahh its on the inside now.

well you can move it to the out side and run a WYE fitting off of your HIGH output regulator and use that just for purging new kegs or using co2 stone etc.
