Taking inspiration from Biermunchers rolling kegerator, lschiavo and I put together this:



I'll take pictures of the inside set up soon, and we still have a few "tweaks", like adding insulation. We have a 5# co2 cylinder and regulator, and three kegs inside. It worked great for Saturday's party.

I scrounged up a few shanks and faucets from you guys here on the forum, and lschiavo had the tap handles and regulators.

maybe it would be more accurate to refer to this as a kegbox, as in converted icebox.... since there is no refrigeration system as a kegerator or keezer would have..

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!
