I use picnic taps for all of my beers. I can fit 6 kegs in my fridge. It works out well for me.

I've got a small fridge large enough inside to fit a cornie and a 5lb CO2 tank. I can see going through the hassle of cooling a tower for a nice bar like some of you have but not on a small fridge like mine. I can't decide if I'm just gonna start out with the picnic tap or go straight to the perlick on the upper portion of the door.

Can't get cheaper than the picnic tap and my beer tastes as good as anyone's.

Yeah, when I start kegging (soon) I'm planning on going cheap (ie picnic tap in a fridge) until I get a bar built and put a nice tap on it.

If I spend more than the minimum money on anything in between, it'll be a portable cooler with taps for kegs on the go (or something else that I'll keep and use even after I've got the bar in).
