Chest Freezer Kegerator Conversion Project
We chatted about it a bit in this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/going-make-keezer-27120/?highlight=keezer and I mentioned I was going to do a video diary of my conversion project. While the first two videos are busy uploading to youtube (dang slow DSL upstream) I thought I'd get a thread going about it.

Here's a pic I snapped about midway through the project:


The 8.9 cuft Whirlpool holds 5 cornies with room for a 10lb tank on the hump. All your questions will probably be answered in the videos so hang in there, they're coming.

I'd be completely done with the project if I didn't get 6 inches of water in my basement the night of construction!! UGH.

Excellent timing. I'm working my SWMBO for just such an "investment".

Can't wait to see how the beveled collar turns out. That's a nice material you used for the collar. What is it...

Oooops.... That was a question....

Guess I'm too impatient to wait for the vid....

I am building one myself. Just bought the wood at Home depot lastnight. I am following the way this guy did his. http://www.mikeserve.com/HomeBrewing/chestfreezer.htm

Awesome job Bobby. I just sat through both clips.

Well done.

Great videos! Impressive! Can't wait for the other one(s). I've already got my hands on a 5.0 cubic ft chest type freezer. I can't wait to make my keggerator. You saved me the headache of trying to figure this bear out. Thanks for the inspiration. Brew on! :rockin:

Awesome! Thanks for putting this up. Can't wait for Part 2 either.

It's not quite done yet (minor details are left) but here are a couple pics of mine:


I am extremely fortunate in the fact my wife lets me keep it in our family room! :rockin:

By the way, here is what I currently have on draft:

Tap 1 - AG Sweet Cream Stout
Tap 2 - AG Wildflower Honey Ale
Tap 3 - AG English Nut Brown Ale
Tap 4 - AG Orange Blossom Cream Ale

- GL63

Part 2 may be a couple weeks out. Just after finishing this video, I went in the basement to grab a beer to have with dinner and that's when I found a big flood. Now all the crap that was down there is in the garage blocking my kegger project into the corner. Dang it.
