I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who posted here, even though my build ended up not being a keezer I got so much inspiration from all of your designs and builds that my mental wheels were constantly spinning.

The creativity and ingenuity involved with some of these contraptions is enough to boggle me, not to mention the willingness to throw caution to the wind and drill through random walls and doors.

Thanks again!

Cheers, Ian

Quite nice, The top is what I wanted to do with my keezer, but went a different route. I love the staining and the flat black. Well done.

Hello All

Let me first thank ALL of you for the amazing keezer ideas that everyone has shared. Many elements from the weeks of lurking on HBT have found their way onto my new toy, and I owe this forum a huge thanks!

Went with the Kenmore 8.8. Couldnt manage to keep it simple either, as is a common problem of mine. However, I'm sure the folks over at Visa arent complaining. Thanks again for all the wonderful ideas that kicked off 3 weeks of obsessive insomnia!

Quite the first post ranger. One of the slickest looking builds I have seen. I like the tile and hanging beer indicators.

Thanks! Thats nice to hear considering the other excellent builds that came before me. The tile was a pretty risky undertaking as I had zero experience laying it. I used about 32oz of Parks Super Coat to lay down a nice thick 1/8" layer of clear epoxy over the tile. Definitely will keep the stout out of the grout.

Very nice, Ranger! VERY sanitary! I like the illumination. That'll come in handy for when the rest of the lights in the house are off and you feel you have to have just ONE MORE stout! A beer beacon.

Hi,

Looking for a fridge for my cornie keg and the Sanyo 4912 seems to be the one. If I can't find one of those, what are the other options? Is there a list somewhere on the forum of suitable fridges? I'm looking for a small fridge, not a full size one. Thanks!

I'd suggest looking on craigslist, you can usually pick one up for free, or maybe $50-100. I got a $500 15 cu ft chest freezer for $90! Otherwise you can get one brand new from home dept or lowes for a few hundred bucks.

Chest freezers tend to have a little more room in them, so I would definitely consider going that route, so you can always expand your setup, but with a chest freezer, you just have to get a temp controller to keep it above freezing, and at serving temps, which will run you another $50(but do some research on that, because there are some other options you may consider for temp control, that may save you a few bucks). Theres also a thread on here called "sizing your chest freezer", that shows different models and how many kegs they fit. See if you can find it doing a search, otherwise I can link it on here later. Good luck.

Thanks. I've checked craigslist and nothing so far. Are there any others commonly known to work? Most mini-fridges that appear tall enough have a freezer, which is a difficult thing to remove without destroying the entire fridge, I'm told.
