Default No More Bottles!!!!

I got my kegerator up and running. My ESB is being force carbed as we speak.

I converted a Sanyo 4912. It should be able to fit two kegs and a 5lb CO2 bottle. Things weren't so easy....I cut through a freon line in my first one. Plans are underway to repair that one. I was impatient, so I just bought a new one.

It looks so beautiful sitting in my kitchen. *sniff*

Sam, can you post the pics (inside and out) in your gallery? I would love to see it. I currently have a kegerator (see gallery), but need to switch over to corny kegs and lines. I have only had commercial beer in the kegerator, but now that I am brewing a lot I will start kegging.

To hit the freon line you must have gone through the side of fridge rather than the door? Anyway, it should be fairly easy for you to repair. I look forward to seeing the pics!

Nope, the damn line was in the top! I almost crapped myself when it went "PSSSSSST".

I'll try to get some pics up in the next few days.

Oh yeah....you should be able to find what you need for the conversion at www.beveragefactory.com. Great selection, and the best prices I came across.

Sam, I'm real interested as well . I "want" to build into my wet bar a 2 tap system if I can make it work. I have a space under the bar that is 34h x 21.5w x 22d. A tight fit but looks like that Sr-4912M Sanyo would fit if thats what you got. So does it fit the 2 kegs and 5# co2 like you hoped? Does the gauges go in the frig as well?



I'd have to have the hoses etc coming off the right side of the frig if that is doable. My plan was to have the 2-tap with flush mount drain sitting to the right of the frig / left of the sink. But still wanted to retain as much storage as I can on the right.

Going to take my time on this setup as I want it to look professional so I'm still in the planning stages. Don't want to F it up but it would look awesome if it could work!

I got to go check out that sanyo frig live but I have a similar dimension one at the office. That one however has a molded shelf on the back bottom that takes away about 6-7" on inside depth & about 6" high as well. Seems like a lot of them do. Is that also on the Sanyo? I couldn't imagine having room for everything with that so figured I'm SOL in using what I already own

Desertbrew,
What if you came up the top of the fridge and drilled through the top of the counter for a tower tap?

Intentions was a tower tap and I actually started thinking about that as well. I kind of wanted to plumb the drip tray into the sink though so wasn't sure if I'd have the space to do that. It might be an option though. I got to go to the HBS today so I'll get some visuals on the tower taps and drains. Best Buy is nearby as well so I can check out that Sanyo.

I got a spare full size frig but the wife says no Been married long enough to know that ain't worth the fight. This'll look cooler anyway but the $ keeps a flowin with this hobby...

Hey fellas, sorry I'm so late getting back on this. I just tried it, and 2 ball lock cornies and a 5lb CO2 tank WILL fit. You have to remove all the shelving from the door, but that's extremely easy. It's tight, but it works!!
