I am new to this forum and home brewing in general, and was wondering if someone could answer a few questions for me.
I just got a hold of a free mini-fridge, and I was wondering if it is cheaper/easier to set up a double tap kegerator myself, or buy one of the conversion kits for around $250-$300.
I have not picked up the fridge yet, but I know it has no freezer unit, is around 4.9c cubic ft. and its compressor is on the back of the fridge. So I know I should be good there.
My first question is if I want a nice non-pvc tower and I need the CO2 tank, regulator, Cornelius kegs, etc. will I be able to buy all that for a considerably cheaper price then simply buying a $300 kit.
Also I do want to get into home brewing which the kit or w/e I would buy would have the correct taps, however is it also possible to fill the kegs with domestic/imported beer. I know that I would need separate stankey/European fittings, however I just wanted to make sure this was possible and I could find places that would fill them.
Thanks in advance for all the help, I am just new to this and trying to weigh all my options.
