BadgerBrigade - look through the DIY section of these forums for "mini fridge kegerator build" and that should help.

But for those builds you are looking at:
* CO2 Tank
* CO2 Regulator
* Gas lines, barbs, clamps and Quick Disconnects (the things that actually attach to the keg)
* Fridge
* Tower with tap(s)
* Tap handle(s)
* Drip tray

Outside of the cost of the fridge you could probably do it for $250 - $300 or cheaper if you're thrifty

Is there a way to adjust the Perlick faucet handle to sit more forward? I just got my tap handle in and if I screw it on to the faucet it will not close all the way. I installed the faucet on the fridge in my garage and I push the handle back to close the faucet and it hits the fridge and still does not close all the way. Hope this is the right place to ask this question.

Here is mine. Nothing you haven't seen before, but it is mine and I can't believe a finally have a working keezer in my kitchen.

It is not yet quite complete. The nitro setup is being shipped and that tap will occupy the spot with the blue tape. I should be able to get 4 kegs, a CO2 tank and nitro tank in here.

So far I have a witbier and an 80? in there, with a 3rd keg of carbonated water.

I also attached a picture of my custom keezer magnet (I am a financial advisor) and a picture of the 80/ I pulled out of there last night.

Photos are a bit blurry, but you'll get the idea...

Default My "hulkerator"

Built this two months ago for party and im just finishing up my second keg.(Blue Moon). Its tied for the coolest project ive ever done since i also repurposed an old arcade into a captain america arcade that plays dozens of games. Love my Hulkerator and have gotten many compliments on it from guys and looks from females that let me know that they think guys are a little crazy. Located in my garage and im finding myself out there more than ever.lol.

Holy cow that is cool. Are you going to add more taps? If you homebrew you should brew a Hulk SMaSH beer.
