You have more refrigerated air than a morgue.
You don't have a kegerator!!??!?

Punch a few holes in the wall (or ceiling), hook up a tap and call it a day.

IIRC, they have full on kegerators there.

Yeah, but thats way out in the garage... :-) No kegerator yet, been using a extra fridge but that isn't as practical (or cool) as a real kegerator.

I found my kegerator at Best Buy - a Haier single tower/tap model. I've since modded it with a nicer tower and Ranco temperature control.

I vote for the 4912, you have the money for it and the project is a pretty simple and fun conversion

If I had it to do over again, I might opt for the 4912 as well...except that the Haier kegerator was on clearance, and we had a gift certificate, so it was almost free!

Well I'd hoped for one just a little bigger that would fit 3 kegs... but this will do just fine. Anyone have any experience with the smaller 2.5~3 gallon kegs and this fridge? I happen to have about six of those...
