Default Frigidaire FFBC46L2QS as Keggerator

Manufacturer: Frigidaire
Model: FFBC46L2QS

This thread probably does not belong in the DIY forum, since all I did was drill a few holes and installed a tap tower. But I'd like to add yet another fridge to the database of fridges that can be converted. The more we have, the better.

This fridge was by no means intended to become a keggerator. My wife bought it a few years back from Lowe's for the game room, and I still grind my teeth thinking about the cost of this thing (it's only purpose was to house my commercial craft beer for crying out loud). However, since I just started burning for home brew and the fact that this fridge can't accommodate both low and tall profile bottles properly, I have never really liked this fridge as a beer bottle container.

So, with that said, it is a nice looking fridge so I decided to convert it to put it to much better use.

It fits two (2) Cornelius kegs as well as a 5lb co2 tank on the compressor shelf. They don't fit right next to each other, but it still works. However, I'm delighted they even fit at all.

I keep the thermostat at 39 and it currently has a Oatmeal Stout in the right keg. I'm a week away to keg a Pale Ale. The only thing I need to keep an eye on is the beer lines easily touch the cooling element in the back which freezes the line in a moments notice. They are lightly taped to the back of the kegs but I may get some pipe insulation in the future.
