Just finished mine yesterday. I ordered some welding magnets to attach the drip tray and still need to attach the lines to the inside of the collar, but she's pretty much done. Room for 6 kegs total (or 4 and a lagering carboy). Dual hinge so I can just open the lid for force carbing, tinkering, etc, or I can open the collar for loading and unloading.

The longer ones are what I ordered from kegconnection when I thought I was going to convert a refrigerator. I got the shorter ones for free and have gotten everything else for a 4 tap setup. It would be nice if they were all shorter; maybe I'll send the long ones back and swap them out.

I had a similar problem. I ordered the kit w/out thinking about the shanks so some are longer. Sure wish they were all short as I sometimes have to remove a rear keg to make room to change a front one..

Thinking I am likeing the shank way to go more than the tower way to go...I am already committed to the tower since thats what I have, but the next keezer is going to be of the shank/collar variety.

It is not the most stylish of beasts, but it gets the job done. The top is finished with chalk board spray paint. I went with the chalk board finish not only to keep track of what is on tap but it also serves as a score board for my dart board that is only 2 feet away.

I finished this project last weekend. It is funny how this idea started out a month ago simply as me wanting a unit to lager in...than a larger than expected free freezer offer later, I have a unit to lager in along with 4 cornies and room for a full barrel.

Dittoo I built a tap box to incrporate in a bar build, but am thinking of removing it and changing to a collar mounting tap design.

Default My Oster Kegerator- Finally Finished

I finally got my kegerator finished up! It is an Oster 5.0 cubic foot fridge. I decided to go with the Irish Coffin Style setup rather than the tower.


As you can see, I have a high tech drip tray. Okay, it's just a heating vent grille that I picked up at Menard's, but I am going to paint it with a metallic finish to match the Perlicks and make a wooden base for it.

I lined the inside of the Irish coffin with 3/4" styrofoam board. I can remove the insulation and cut new pieces if needed. I also have a 12 volt fan mounted in a project box inside the fridge compartment that directs cold air into the Irish Coffin via a length of vinyl tubing. I decided not to wire the fan into the fridge. Instead, I ran the wire to an AC-to-DC power supply that I plugged into the wall outlet.

The air entering the draft box is at a nice 40 degrees.

At the moment, I only have one beer on tap, a classic American pilsner that I made using a cereal mash with polenta in addition to pilsner malt.
