Default Building my first keezer, need parts.

I am building my first keezer. Just bought my 7.0 cu foot Kenmore freezer today and starting to build the collar. I am trying to see what conversion kits are needed for the build. My problem is I cannot find one that will setup for two taps, one for a corny and one for a standard sanke. Where can I find out what I need so I have a complete list of all the parts?

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to sharing my keezer build on here!

Try www.beveragefactory.com or www.micromatic.com they have conversion kits- for dual taps.

Well, you may not be able to order this as a "kit".

However, the best option might be to order a kit that's designed solely for 2 corny taps, then buy:

2x of this: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...ducts_id=12479
1x of this: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...oducts_id=1290

That way, you can easily swap in and out the Sanke keg for homebrew on demand.

Don't necessarily feel the need to order a kit from somewhere. You may be able to order the parts all separate and make your own kit.

Just food for thought. Sanke kegs just require a different connection (one that combines gas and liquid into 1 piece. Everything else about your system should be the same.


Also, post pics of your progress!

Thanks! Just posted some pics of the kegs in the freezer on the show your Kegerator Thread, will here as well. Just trying to find the most economical way of doing this build so I don't have a ton of extra parts I don't need.

Think of them as spares, not extra! It's always good to have extra hardware around...

One bit of advice...

BUY PERLICK FAUCETS!

If you buy the standard rear-sealing faucets, you're going to be really mad at yourself in 6-24 months when you have to frustratingly replace them with Perlick. So buy the Perlick right up front and save a bit of that money in the long run

Great advice, I am seeing that more and more reading these posts.

That being said, a lot of the time those are not included in the kits. Is there some sort of checklist so I can make sure I have all the parts if I am buying this piece by piece?
