hey everyone,
Just thought I would put up some pics of my new baby! Its pretty basic, just a used frigidaire freezer I got off of CL. I'm using a Ranco temp controller, it holds 3 kegs plus the tank on the hump. At most i think i can fit the 3 kegs, tank, and one carboy. For now i'm using the cheap picnic tap...im broke after this project and my first brew. Eventually i want to install some faucets through a collar or maybe a couple DIY towers. we'll see. Anywho, here are some pics of the finished product. I dont think i've seen anyone else with this paint scheme, so i feel pretty good that it came out so well.
Enjoy,
Sam

Thanks I'll check them out. I've actually been looking for something like that because I have very little woodworking experience. Glad you like the set-up. I didnt want to have to get up too far from the couch...

bigkahuna- ya im pretty much set now!

only thing that sucks is that I'm moving back home for summer soon so the keezer has to stay . But thats ok because im going to take all my equipment home and use the kegerator I made for my dad out of my old dorm room mini-fridge! it only fits one keg but thats a hit im willing to take.

Reminds me of the "In" kitchens of the '80s.
