Someone posted a link to this Perlick UPGRADE a while back. Since I was putting together my kegerator and didn't already have a tower I went for it.

I've very pleased with the Perlicks. I've seen some comparisons where they don't look as nice as Ventmatic/Shirron faucets, but mine are extremely clean and smooth.

Anyway, at $158 for a tower with 2 Perlicks shipped I thought it was a good deal and would pass it along.

NOTE: I didn't get a shipping invoice or tracking number like the seller said, but the shipping WAS prompt, so overall I was satisfied.

I took a few pictures - I know how you guys like your beer porn. It's a standard 4910/4912 conversion. I'm very pleased with the results.

Need to take another one - this one was taken at an angle. Oh well.


The faucet on the left is condensing after the cold one I just poured.


I replaced the molded plastic on the door with a dry erase board but I haven't written anything on it yet.


And lastly, I chopped the metal shelf and used the back half to support the CO2 tank. Great idea, whoever thought of that one.

Sweet Job.

Now it's time for some drip trays. Try giving "The Fellas" a shot.

The one I've got is a Sanyo 4910. The newer ones are 4912s, but they're practically identical. There are also some other brands that are the same fridge. Just make sure it's a 4.9 cu ft that doesn't have a freezer section.

Here's the instructions I followed. Straight forward and easy to do.

Yeah, I remember seeing the fellas. Great idea. I'm not in a big hurry on the drip trays, though. My faucets only drip a few drops after I shut them off... into my glass. I may just stick with the old fashioned thin rectangular type if I get one.
