This is my keg setup. I decided to share it because the forums here, combined with some YouTube videos helped me get to this point. It's simple but effective.

Very cool.. I'd like to do some thing similar, just bought a 20#er today. (sill need to brew my first batch of brew though, still in the gathering mode.) That looks like a good way to leave more room in my refer. Did you adjust the racks/shelves or was that stock, I.e. Half side by side.

Very nice solution. Way to think outside of the (ice)box.

I removed the crisper drawers at the bottom and put all the shelves to one side. The board was a pre laminated plank from Home Depot that gave me a flat enough surface area to put my carboy when fermenting ands keg as shown. I have a temperature controller that you can't see on the left. This allows me to use the fridge as a kegerator and fermenter.

The gas connector idea came from a You Tube video that I watched when looking for ideas on how to run my gas line to the keg from outside the fridge. Standard brass fittings from Home Depot as well.

Thanks BillyRaygun. Sounds like a good plan for my garage fridge.
