I picked up a 7 cu ft freezer yesterday to start my keezer build. I'm planning on a completely unapologetic and blatant rip-off of Jester's keezer (I should send him a case of beer or something).
The freezer can fit 4 ball locks and a CO2 tank. This morning I started shopping around for complete kits to see if buying it all at once from one place would save me some money.
Right now I'm comparing Keg Connections 4 Faucet Refrigerator Conversion Homebrew Kit, Premium Kit (http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=196
) and Midwest Supplies' Brew Logic Quadruple Tap Draft System with 4-way gas manifold (
The main differences I see is that the Keg Connection kit only has a single gauge regulator while Midwest's is dual (which should allow me to force carb one keg while dispensing the others, right?) but KC's comes with shanks and faucets while MW's only has picnic taps. I'll take everybody's recommendation here and make sure I get Perlick taps, but I'm having trouble deciding which of these kits is the better deal with the upgrades I'll want. Are there any other upgrades I should be considering?
On tap (finally!):
Stone Ruination knockoff
Irish Red Ale
Modified Ed Wort's apfelwein (half apple cider)
Modified Ed Wort's apfelwein (1/3 pomegranate)
Pliny the Elder clone
Bad Monkey Super Charged IPA
