Haven't read that link yet, but what about a piece of plywood across the glass to distribute the weight of the keg?

I removed the crisper drawers and bottom shelf on mine. It allows me to fit 2 kegs with stuff in between them. Yeast jars also fit perfectly on the back ridge. I also do the occasional carb burst after a few beers like KevinM.

I too rent and cannot modify my fridge. I have no place for a kegerator and I'm not sure the electrical could handle it if I did. Any instruction/pics of how to do this. I am single and don't keep a lot of food in the fridge so I could accomodate a keg or maybe even a couple of 5 gal kegs. I don't brew anymore, so I would be buying the beer.

I too have not had much luck on CL. Everyone wants what they paid for it and you can buy new for a little more.

1.75 gallon keg that is 11 inches tall and would easily fit in most fridges. Add a paintball tank, a regulator made for one and a cobra tap and you're good to go. The paintball tank and regulator can still be used if you eve get a dedicated fridge for kegs. I use mine for my portable setup as well as for force carbing. I always keep 2 full paintball co2 tanks at all times. 5# tanks of co2 can't be filled at night or on weekends, paintball tanks can always be filled at night and on weekends, they make a great backup.
