I may be wrong about this, but I don't think I am. If its a commercial fridge with glass front, it probably doesn't have coolant lines in the walls. That's a phenomenon for residential cooling only. Commercial units have a radiator like clump of coils and a fan that blows across them.

short spoon- If indeed there are coils running through the sides, you could always use it as a temperature controlled fermentation chamber, by only adding a temperature controller. Then, keep your eyes peeled for another sweet craigslist deal, unless you are limited by space.

Found a small leak in regulator connection which may explain my CO2 usage. fixed that today, I think. Pics would be great. Love mine. makes me wonder why I ever bottled! Kegging is so much easier!

get a 3rd keg to keep that dual tap pipe line full otherwise you'll have 1 empty a good part of the time, found that out the hard way. I try to have 2 going at any given time brew a 3rd about 1/2 way empty on keg 1 and sugar prime (1/3 cup priming sugar for 2 weeks) the 3rd so when 1 kicks... ready to go on next. force carb as needed if 2 kick in close order. saves on gas with this method.

I decided to do it. I upgraded from my two tap Haier kegerator to this Kenmore 8.8 keezer. I used 1X8 Oak with red mahogany stain for the collars. 2 inch Tuff-R insulation for the top collar.

This is also a dual hinge unit, using extra factory hinges from sears direct.

Overall it was not that hard to make, even in my one bed room apartment.

Default My kegerator

HD Kegerator. Was fun to make but eats way to much electricity. Next one will be made from an energy efficient frige. I believe it will be worth the cost over the long run.
