Looks great, but what about putting that Milk Stout on Nitro?
You've got plenty of room.
Just sayin'....

Hmmm, I did not see a Nitro tap in there. Tell SWMBO that the Nitro needs to happen before the root beer!

Very nice!

Hahhaha. I've got the stout faucet... Two of them in fact. I just haven't gotten the tank or regulator yet. I'll pull two of the regular taps out once I get that and use them do the portable kegerator.

Basic two tap system may look at getting a third later on.
Fridge was free and haven't bothered to do much of clean up on it yet, too busy keeping the kegs full

Thanks!

This has been in my family for about 100 years and my mom was about to get rid of it so I gutted it and made it a shell for a fridge. I'm using a 4.1 Cb ft fridge that holds 2 cornies and a CO2 bottle. The fridge and wood sit on furnature sliders so when I have to change a keg out I can easiely slide the whole thing out (carefully). Here is the link to the whole build.
