Default Kegerator Done!

I finally took a picture of the finished kegerator. Just like with everything related to brewing, I am kicking myself, saying, "I should have done this a long time ago!". Here's a picture from yesterday:

Congrats on finishing it up.

You're making me feel sad about my picnic taps :P.

That's very nice. I've never seen a fridge that size. Either they make small refrigerators in UP land or that dude standing there is huge.

I used those picnic taps for a couple of years, and I really didn't mind. The joke now is that I don't even have to tire myself out with all that opening and closing of the fridge. The kegerator is directly behind my computer desk. I have wheels on my chair, so I just spin around and pour.

I have to clean off the top, though, and put the glasses and barware on top.

Since I decided to do it, I bought the Perlicks and I'm so happy I did. But now, I don't have a kegerator for the cottage, and I can see me doing this again so that I can keep a keg or two out at the cottage. It's an addiction, I tell you!

I had three drip pans, because they didn't sell the length I needed. Initially, I ordered two faucets, and the "long" drip tray was 6 inches long and not quite long enough. Once I took out some of the shelves on the door, I found I could fit three kegs in there instead of the two that had been in there all along. Since I already had two faucets and drip trays installed, I just ordered one more and put it in the middle.

Bob's only about 6' tall! It's an "apartment" sized fridge that's about 3/4 size of a regular fridge. I got it a couple of years ago at a thrift store for $40. It seems to be exactly what I needed for beer.
