I JUST NOW missed a full size fridge for $50 on CL.

It had been posted 1.5 hours before I called, and it was already gone.



(...the search goes on. I am gunning for "free")

Default Second kegarator

I've been kegging for the past 8 years, but my current keggarator is a full sized fridge in the garage.

The Oster will get me out of the garage in time for winter!
(Very important in Michigan!)

BTW, overnight the Oster got down to 33 degrees, no more worries if it gets cold enough for me.

Default Update

I built the fan box to cool the tower (when it arrives)
Very easy to make!
I used a computer fan (12v) a wall wart and tapped into the power at the thermostat.

All the pictures others have posted really help!!

Tank, taps, and tower should get here next week.

Hope to be up and running shortly after that.

Default Done and Pouring!! (Pictures)

Got'er done this past weekend, and it's sweet if I don't say so myself!

Price of a new Oster fridge: $209
Tower, tank, taps, regulator $240

Look on my SWMBO's face when I took a 3" hole saw to a brand new fridge:

PRICELESS!!

Default CO2 Tank

The tank sits on the shelf that covers the compressor, right behind the cornys.
The tower fan then sits next to the CO@ tank.

It fits 2 cornys just fine if you remove the shelves in the door.\

No way to fit three, however.
