Yeah I think mine will end up being spanned over a decent period if time as well because we are in an apt right now and I don't have a lot of tools handy. But I think I am going to start searching for used stuff. Did you get used faucets too?

Would anybody recommend getting a kegerator conversion kit to do this? Or is it cheaper/better to build it piece by piece with used parts?

I guess I still need to do research because I do not know what types of faucets or connectors or regulators or anything that I need

I was around $1500 - You can see the price breakdown here - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/jeeb...3/#post4113262

But I didn't wait for sales or any of that. And I did not do it over a long period - maybe a month and a half - just on the weekends. Also it was my first woodworking project ever - so I had to buy tools - which are NOT included in the price.

That being said, its doable for much less you just have to be patient.

I concur with purplehaze on the faucets - go with Perlicks the first time around.

If I buy a set up for a single tap system is it easily convertible to a double? Or should I just buy all the stuff for double upfront?
