cheers bloke. funnily enough I just ordered 4 kegs this morning, so they are on their way. I must have sensed your suggestion...

funds are tight on this project, so i will be doing it in baby steps. space is also tight (we live in an apartment) so I have to keep it small to maintain SWMBO approval for this project...

first is just to get a single tap, regulator and one of those C02 bulb systems for dispensing - I can carbonate the keg at a mates place and use my esky to chill - then go on the hunt for a mini-fridge so I can start building a kegerator proper.

I will probably stick to three taps if i can find a mini fridge that will get three kegs in, otherwise I will go with two. We plan to move in the next 12 months due to child, so once I have the space, I will build a separate 4 tap system for the brewing shed.

Cheers

Wobbles.

Beer Altar. My house is a renovated church, and this was the altar. Underneath is a BeverageAire bar fridge I got off Craigslist for $300, but it had the tower, faucets, etc included. It holds 2 1/2 barrels and a sixtel, so I always have 3 on tap.



This very thread is what inspired me to get this beast going- thanks to all you creative beer folks!

That thing is awesome. Did you have to do any work to the altar to fit it in there? work pics?

and out of sheer curiosity what does the rest of your house look like?

Thanks! I had to disasemble it so that the front would come off (to get at the fridge)- there are some threaded rods that have wingnuts holding the front on.
Then it was just a matter of cutting the holes for the drain and tower in the right spots and lining it all up.

Here a view from the Master bedroom 'loft'

I am new to the site and am in awe of some of the kegerators and keezers shown here. Thought I would throw mine in. It is an old fridge so when it dies, I plan on making something a little more exciting. For now, pulling beer out an old whiskey barrel is fun. Fridge will hold 3 cornies...can't seem to brew fast enough (or drink slow enough) to fill all three at the same time. But that doesn't stop me from having fun trying.

Used to. I've been in Virginia for about 10 years now.

My kegerator dual tap craigslist find for $150 sanded and painted it black. It's now a sexy black and chrome admiral fridge/kegerator.
