Considering SWMBO already being sightly annoyed, I would think putting a hole in an otherwise perfectly good fridge would be out. I vote axing the work fridge. It's a worthy, valiant cause...

PBW would work too. Let me expand a little more on what I've done. It may be a bit of overkill, but I'd rather be safe than sorry with the kegs. Again, I'm new to this as well, but can't think of...

Uber, I think it's all tit for tat. I'll be picking up some more insulation tape to do cover the lines on mine up to the shanks, but I'm not convinced it's necessary. I just finished force-carbing...

Thanks Kilted. I've only got one CO2 tank but have been planning on picking up a backup. If I went that route, I'd need a second regulator as well though, wouldn't I?
