Sweet. Thanks! My kegerator comes in tomorrow. I can't wait to get started kegging.

I got it from Beer Meister. I spoke to the guy there and had it custom ordered to ensure the tower stays cold, it has all the necessary connections, fits 3 kegs so I can chill an on-deck brew, a dual regulator (basically all the complaints of the sub-par store bought units)...so I shouldn't have to upgrade anything right away or go out and get additional parts. This one looks like a winner, and even comes with 2 corny kegs! We'll see how it works this weekend! I just couldn't see spending $400-$500 on a unit that I'd need to throw $200 at for it to be efficient. I'll eventually be building a bar in my den, and probably work in a custom keezer into that. But I have other house projects that need doing first. I wanted something to start with and didn't mind a little extra cost to get it sooner.

Here's the exact model I ordered.

Also, flip top bottles work great as mini-growlers. Plus, wouldn't filling a bottle up to the brim and capping be the same as carbing with priming sugar but leaving some headspace? The CO2 has nowhere to go but into the VERY small headspace that you left in the bottle.
