    Pics coming soon...The compressor is controlled by an aquarium controller (the standard one
    people use). It's set for whatever 40F is in Celsius and never gets there, so the compressor
    never stops. It...

    I'm trying to get a display piece working for my company. We're building a kegerator into a
    competitor's piece of equipment. That means ... no obvious cooling unit.The box is 2' wide, 3'
    deep, 6' tall...

  • Posted in thread: Cooling a beer fridge without converting a dorm fridge? on 11-15-2014 at 01:57 AM
    I have a 19" rack that I'm installing as a beer fridge (Silicon Valley startup). I've insulated
    the space, but the dorm fridge we gutted to use as a cooling source isn't keeping up. Does
    anyone have a...

    You can refill a paintball tank from a big tank pretty easily. The key is to remember that CO2
    is stored as a liquid, not a gas. BTW, smallest paintball tank I ever found was a 3.5oz. 9oz is
    pretty co...

    TL;DR: what's a good kind of stuffable insulation that's easier on the hands than fiberglass
    but removeable/repackable, unlike spray foam?I'm building a kegerator for work. For marketing
    reasons, we'r...

    One word of caution with the mixers - they can clog. We had a beer that had a bit of crud in
    the bottom and it clogged the mixer. I was wondering why the beer pour was so slow... no foam
    though :)

    I may be a poor grad student, but I am definitely building one of these! Luckily I have some
    mad carpentry skills, and can even make old ratty 2x4's look kinda nice. I hate to ask this
    question, cause...

    One technique I've seen for keeping tower lines cool is to sheathe them in copper tubing that
    extends ~6" into the body of the freezer. Beer line and air are terrible conductors of heat,
    but copper is...

    Never! Thread necromancy!I've got another shameless ripoff in progress. I blame my wife. Me: "I
    can get it working by this weekend. I just need to build a collar and drill for taps!"Her:
