Default Finally done!

Today was the first Saturday I've had off in two months, and I made good use of it. My refrigerator won't feel lonely any more!

Sanyo 4911, chrome tower with Ventmatic faucets. Buford, you may notice a slight resemblance to your setup...well OK, it's nearly a direct copy! Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Your pictorial was a huge help in getting this thing together.

I still need to install the Ranco controller, and I'm not yet sure if I'll need tower cooling. I keep my house pretty cool, so maybe not.

Now I just need to summon up another few weeks of patience, to let my Red Hook clone condition a bit longer.

Sweet set up BLL. You're gonna love it, trust me.

Let me know how your Red hook ESB turns out. I have 10 gallons on tap now and I love it...though I should have worked harder at clarifying the beer.

My craigslist score, picked it up for a song!



My plan is a two-tap chrome tower, but so far all I've done is replace the standard faucet with a ventmatic, they rock! The unit has an exterior digital temp control, so I'm set there.

And here's my first draft pour, my Orange Blossom Special.



And my two best customers at the keg tapping!



Cheers!

I can't really say much, as my mod was in turn based on someone else's mod (a combo of two writeups I had seen, actually). The originator of the Sanyo 4912 mod is probably one of the beer gods that passed down this knowledge to the prophets who then felt fit to write it into scripture

Man I love my wife! 14.8 cubic feet of beer chilling goodness! Draft towers are in the mail, so no pic yet... but 6 cornies and 2 fermenters all at the same time.... Ahhhh

Looks a bit funny holding a Perlick faucet up to your glass to get a drink, but it works till the towers are here. Kinda glad the old kegerator bit the dust now *grin*

I finally finished the cosmetic parts of my kegerator last night. Still have to figure out how to replace the wire (to ground it). Then I need to buy the kegs to go into it. It does look much better than when I got it.

Before:




After:

here is mine, still in the process of being completed. i want at least one more shirron and possibly a guiness tap.

here are the taps up close. you can see the two spots that i marked for the other two taps.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1.../fridge002.jpg
the fridge used to be white but i painted it with appliance srpay paint. i highly recommend this. instead of painting the handle black, i wrapped it in some leather for more of a southern touch i guess.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1.../fridge003.jpg
i set up a quick connect through the side so the co2 tank won't take away important space on the inside. i also put a shut off valve on it that has a built in check valve.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1.../fridge004.jpg
this is the inside. there is barely room for five cornies. i plan on having a spare at all times that is cold and carbonated so i can make a quick change if needed.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1.../fridge005.jpg
i removed the shelving and put up some dry erase board for notetaking purposes. i also want to add some type of hose clamp assembly for the door that will keep all of the hoses nice and tight together, just cause i think it will look nice.

If you want images to show in the post you have to use the image tag thing in "advanced". You can obly use 4 images per post so I split these up.
