I thought I would post this for others to see. I picked up a great Kenmore mini fridge on craiglist for 40 bucks so a new kegerator was in order. Fridge was easy as it was a model with no freezer, simple as drilling the hole and that part was done. Already had two perlick faucets on my big fridge so I wanted a cheap project. The prospect of a 150.00 twin tap online was not welcome.
Solution-I bought two elbow shanks (originally part of a 1 to 2 tower conversion kit) from my local northern brewer for 22.50 each. I admit I did get a 10% discount.
Heres the cool part for the tower-
I'm sorry if I'm stealing anyone's previous work as I have yet to see it here. Yes that's right... a toilet brush holder from Bed Bath and Beyond. Get this, it is stainless and the exact dimensions of a traditional tower. 12 inches high 3 inch diameter. Cost 16 bucks after a 20% coupon. Drill mounting holes, drill shank holes, insulate and use a really long screw driver to mount. They actually have other styles and choices that would certainly work. Just be careful because some have a visible seam. This one does not.
One complete stainless twin tap tower for 61 bucks! In my case new kegerator for 100.00!
