Yeah the clicker is just a counter that I'm toying with and seeing if its handy for counting pots poured.

The towel on top is just a piece of terry towelling that I bought from the fabric shop to use as a bar runner on top. Pour a beer, sit it on the drip tray and wipe the bottom on the towel so you dont drip beer everywhere.

You shouldn't have to cut out the barrier to fit kegs in there, it's tall enough already. I have a 3/4 size fridge, and it fits 5 corny kegs with enough clearance up top to switch around the QDs.

Here is the shell of what I am working with. I would like some ideas and interest into some possibilities of what I could turn this old school bad boy into. It is a 1950's "Kelvinator" chest freezer that can hold 2 cornys with out a collar and 4 with a collar. Ideas have been tossed around to make it into some sort of hot rod style theme based on the fact that I grew up in a racing/car show/hot rod family tradition. Other ideas were "Mator, as in Tomator" Disney Cars theme but its "Nator, Mator's cousin, Kelvi-Nator."

The final cost of the total build is limited to about $500. Any suggestions?





The idea is to put it against the wall where the pub table is currently and make it the center piece for the bar area. I also thought of some simple ideas to re finish the exterior in a high gloss black with chrome fixtures and refinishing the "Kelvinator" handle in chrome as well as their emblem that is still in good shape on the front. Torn with thoughts...





I have started a thread on this project so I will be sure to post its final outcome on here when its complete. You can follow my restoration progress here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/vint...ration-157113/

[MOD EDIT] Subsequent discussion posts moved to thread referred to above. [/MOD EDIT]

Now that I've scored the 2 faucets I was looking for, ebay is a great place to find a deal on a Nitro faucet. I search like I'm looking for "guinness handle" or "guinness tap" since the whole faucet is many times sold as just a handle in the title. nice score!

Default Jake's Kegerator

Well I finally got all my videos edited and uploaded to my blog...

I realize there are much more extravagant kegerators/keezers out there, but hey, this one will do the job hahah

It was simple to convert the full size fridge and I can't wait to keg the Phat Tyre in about 6 more days!

CLICK HERE for the video of the conversion Kit from Keg Connection
