Thanks for the link. That cleared up a few things. Based on what I pulled out of that, I believe that a hole in the back of my new serving fridge is the way to go...

Not a problem, that is why I love HBT! In the last year I have had a thousand questions about some aspect of brewing and to date all but one has been answered by searching the site or asking a direct question. Gotta love this place!

Good luck with your mod and post a picture if you get a chance. Might help someone some day...

I ended up only adding one additional tap as that tower was a PITA to step drill through! I have done dozens of kettles and never had as much effort to get through a kettle wall as I did that tower wall. What is that made of, submarine steel?

Anyhow, I browsed halfway through and have not seen where you talked about your 4 taps. Why 4 by the way? I can't get but 2 cornies in now and can only see 3 at most fitting...maybe I should just finish reading your thread and see if the answers are there...

Cheers!

OK so I saw what you did...nice! I should have gone that route instead of drilling the tower! Is that PVC square tubing with a couple of end caps, painted black? I need to look into getting a third keg in mine again. May steal your tower idea if I can get another keg in there! Mind explaining how you constructed and attached yours? Cheers!

Are you local to Victory? Man they make some good beers. Just had their Hop Ranch and love Dirt Wolf!

Awesome mods. Did you do anything to actively cool the new tower?

Sweet. Thanks for the pixs and description. Looks like I could make a similar change to mine and get the 3 taps I am looking for, assuming that when I shave off the plastic inside the kegerator I can get a third keg in...looks like your mod for the gas is a bit more pro than mine. Grin!

Cheers!
