Thanks. Lucked out with the stainless doors. I'm cheap and was going to get white, but Lowe's didn't have any in stock, so they gave me stainless for the same price. Now that I see the finished product, it would have been worth paying the extra 30 bucks.

I never do it for beer, but for water I'll set the regulator at 30-40 PSI and shake the bejesus out of the keg for as long as I can w/ the gas hooked up. (Purge head space first.) Then it goes into the kegerator at 25 PSI. Instant seltzer. The other thing you'll notice is the short serving line. Foaming's not an issue, so no need for the 10' lines recommended for beer.


edit to add:
Might be that I'm the last to know, but I found the drip trays while searching for something for our clubs NHC Club Night service. Seems to me that $17 is a pretty good deal.

Neat. I like seltzer and soda water, both as mixers and straight up.

Adding a little baking soda makes it soda water. I use 2 liter bottles to avoid tying up a keg.

Does anyone know where I can get a cover for a kegerator as shown on the first page ?

I want to keep outside in a covered area, but it's not completely covered.

Thanks

Excellent. Fresh change from stainless or white (even though those are my favorite colors)

Replaced the lid with butcher block top, dual tap tower with Perlicks. Long time lurker on the forums and borrowed plenty ideas from what I saw here. Probably gonna add a black table skirt (catering style) to complete the clean look. Thanks for the inspiration, all!

I just did a test fitting to make sure everything was right. Haier 5.0cf, fits 3 kegs plus both CO2 and Nitrogen Tank. I can't wait to try a home brewed nitro Guinness. Just a few more days before I order all the other parts I need, then about 3 weeks until both an Oatmeal Stout and a Guinness clone are done!

Update from the above photo. Same fridge, 36 hours later. It was my first time staining anything. Right now its just sitting like that because I wanted to see how it looked. I still have 2-3 coats of polyurethane to go on the wood. I don't think it looks too bad for about $75 total investment (not including the freezer itself).
