Ok so my wife says no to turning my extra fridge into a kegerator. Do I have any other options?! I have a mini fridge but its way too mini.

Offer her something in return? Tell her how much a kegerator would mean to you and the company you entertain at home? If that doesn't work you can go with the old standby of "but all the other guys on HBT have one..."

Am I glad that I am single. I just don't get it with wives/husbands that say to no to wanting to buy certain things. If you have the money then what is the big deal??? I just don't get it. Do they say no because they can??

Btw, sorry I really didn't answer your question.

Just store the keg in the fridge without actually "turning it into a kegerator." Or is that out too?

Put her on, I want to hear the other side of the story. Me thinks there's a little more to it.

Get her to help you bottling and after your batch is bottled tell/show her how easy going straight to keg is....

Unless your wife is like mine and actually likes bottling... then just buy one on craigslist and say you picked it up curbside for free..

Solution: New SWMBO?

From what I've heard, its easier to ask forgiveness later than ask permission now...

Yeah unfortunatley she has no problem bottling. I could just keep the keg in the fridge but then I would just have a picnic tap and a co2 right. Takes up the same amount of room. I don't think that she is crazy about me drilling holes in it.

My buddy was in the same boat. What he did was put a CO2 bottle in the fridge along with the lines/couplings for running a couple cornies and used picnic taps. I don't think his wife knows to this day that he's got a makeshift setup.
