Nice, I used a stainless drywall mud tray with magnetic tape.

I wish so bad I went perlicks. I did 4, chrome faucets with shanks that were $25 each (faucet and shank). I also did the handles you make your own label to slip in. Now I see why the faucets are so cheap. If you don't pull a beer from one for a day or two the beer dries in there and they stick bad.., ugh.

Default Kegerator Recommendations

I'm beginning to shop for kegerators. I'd like to stay under $500. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Lowe's freezer, $175. Wood collar $25. Temp controller $75. Four taps all in, $150. Drawing a draught, priceless.

Finish this a few days ago. The wood, except for the 2x8 collar and the base for the tile, is from an old church pew we've had for years. Nice solid oak.



Perlick 525SS faucets, Tapco reg, lines, etc. bought as a complete setup from Birdman Brewing (one of our HBT vendors - highly recommended).

Pre-made? Craigslist.

I picked up mine for $150. Swapped the single tower for a three tap.

I probably have about $250 in mine, total.

Exactly! Me too. I did 2 chrome faucets and they are a pain in the ass if you dont use them daily. Looking to upgrade to Perlicks soon. Do Perlicks fit the shanks that come with the chrome faucets?
