Default I'm so excited!

I'm getting a kegerator in two weeks!

I've been looking at them for about a year, then stopping myself because A) They are too expensive to buy new, and B) the thought of making one makes my head hurt. (Seriously, I start reading those how-to's and my brain just shuts down.) So I tabled it, pretty much gave up. But yesterday I found out that a friend is selling a two-tap kegerator he built for his cousin, who recently moved. It's just sitting in storage, only a couple of years old, built from all new stuff, and it's ALL MINE for only $450, including kegs and CO2! I pick it up in two weeks on a trip to Anchorage, about 6 hours south of here. I have no idea how to set it up, but I'm going to figure it out. Kegging, here I come!

So, this is all in advance of warning you: soon will come all the dumb questions about how to make it work

Very cool. I love having mine, it was worth the time and money to build it. Just wish it was at my house:<

It's a lot easier than you think.

Congrats! I'm in the same boat you were about shelving the kegging idea for later.

Don't worry, dumb questions are the easiest to answer!

Seriously though, it may seem a little intimidating at first but you'll get the hang of it fairly quickly. We'll be happy to help you out.
