So basically where can I buy all of these things as cheap as possible that will hold these items? Mainly looking for the cheapest/smallest fridge to convert in order to save on cost. I see most pre-made kegerators are 6.4 cu ft, but can I go smaller and still fit this stuff? I want to keep the CO2 inside too.
Anyone know if building the actual fridge is a good idea or money saver? If so what parts or steps are needed to make one?
After that it's really simple. Places like keg connection and micromatic have good prices on all the stuff you need to convert.
here's mine, but it doesn't fit a 1/2bbl sanke - no need there's way to much homebrew to be buying commercial kegs.http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/kegerator-project-haier-hrq04wnaww-43664/
probably $200 all said and done, including the kegs co2 bottle taps paint, etc.
