Using 1/6 Kegs in a Kegerator
 
4 Attachment(s)

Hey guys. So after going through cleaning, bottling, etc to my home brew for the last couple years I finally got a sweet deal on a 4 tap kegerator. I picked it and a 3 gal keg up to pus some of my home brew in. I am typically brewing anywhere from 5-15 gallons of home brew at a time and would like 1 of the taps to have a commercial beer in it (Icky, Sierra Nevada, etc). Correct me if I'm wrong but they all have the Sankey connection, right? What is the best way to hook that up to my current setup that has all ball lock connectors? Can I buy the adapter and have 1 tap permanently have that connection?

Also, I plan to have it on tap for a while so do places frown upon me keeping a keg I put a deposit on for a couple months? I have also heard of people taking their corny kegs to places and getting them filled. Anywhere in town that allows that? Thanks for the help. I am just starting to get into kegging and so far I love it. Was nice to keg my smoked porter so quickly. Now I can brew more often!

Here are some pictures of the get up I purchased. Going to make some tap handles too. Have access to a plasma table so we should be able to make some really cool designs!

Hmm...not sure why 1/2 the pictures are sideways. They are right side up on my computer.
