No, I don't. Had the setup at the Mi homebrew fest couple of weeks ago so maybe someone took a couple of pics.

I could take a couple this weekend. I ment to document the build but hey i got too involved to remember to use the camera.

These things get pretty pricey if you add up all the little pieces. I have $300+ into mine with the kegs.

(1)cooler, (2) kegs, PVC tower with (2) shanks and taps, lines and ball lock connections. This doesn't include my CO2 setup. I have a brass gas fitting on the back of the tower to use my paintball setup, the 13 gram cartridges, or i guess my 5 lb.

wow.. don't tell SWMBO (just kidding i sent her to the taylor store for most of the pieces )

I tryed the island breeze but you could not get 2 of these in there.

Here is a pic of my portable kegerator with 2.5's from homebrewing.org.

The right lid that is not closed in the first pic due to the fact the keg is still in the box.

I'm also about to remodel my basement and I may add a small bar. I've never wanted a bar in the basement and when the basement was being finished the first time, I specifically said no bar, but maybe a small walk-up bar with two little mini fridges housing two of these would be nice.
Did your kegs come in yet? Just wondering how long it took you to recive them.


I may jump on this at the price they have. I've chatted with Mike at AHB about buying their 2.5 keg system, but with the stackable kegs. I have a few 5 gallon cornies, but I think I might like the idea of splitting 5 batch recipes between these kegs and bottles instead of keggin an entire 5 gallon batch.

Mike told me two of those kegs stacked is about 29" tall. Anyone who runs the typical draft tower minifridge know if 29" is too tall? Seems taller than a typical 5 gallon corny. I like the idea of (hopefully) have four 2.5 gallon kegs in a mini fridge. If not all of them work, what brands would work? I may look to just getting that style of kegerator if I don't go the chest freezer route.

No, I hurt my back and did not order them. They are still in my cart and now that you've reminded me...

I ordered mine last Friday and got it yesterday. Seems pretty nice. I have an Irish red that will be ready to keg next week to try it out.
