Preface: I had big ambitions to do something special for my portable tapping system, but both finances and available time are getting in the way, so I decided to do a trash can kegorator with my own little improvements/changes.
Supply List To Date:
- used faucets and shanks - $50 shipped (thanks Bowtiebrewery!)
- trashcan - $40
- oak sheets and moldings - $20
- heater register for drip tray - $11
- wire shelving for kegs to sit on - $free from friend
- 4x4 supports for shelving and CO2 bottle - $free from attic
- 3 pinlock kegs, CO2, and lines etc. - $don't remember, have been purchased piecemeal over the last 8 months
The metal shelving cut with an angle grinder to fit better
Shelving fitted with 4x4 for support
Test fit of the 3 kegs and CO2 (sitting on another 4x4 to keep the regulators accessible)
The lid ready to be cut
The lid cut and screwed to the oak bartop
The bartop locked in place using the lids natural seal
Test fit of the coffin modeled by one of our good friends
My stopping point for the night, with faucets installed but not hooked up.
Next steps will be to cut and attach the bartop skirt, attach the coffin, install moldings, install drip tray, stain and seal.
I should be able to finish it up Saturday afternoon.
