Bought a conversion kit from Kegconnection.com and the rest is history.

Now if I could just measure and space correctly...

doesn't matter to me, as long as it's functional... will be filling two kegs this Saturday

yup, i agree...

can't wait to get it up and running... tomorrow i get the C02 tank filled and will insure it holds pressure.

Saturday I will be putting an American IPA and a Holiday Special Ale in two kegs... Could be enjoying some keg beer with football on Sunday

I am in the process of putting together mine. I want to get it all done by Christmas. Bottling is a PITA but it is nice when you want to take some over to a buddies house.

just went out in the garage to look at my handy work again.

the faucets are cold on the outside of the fridge. this should work nicely !!!

doesn't prove i don't have any leaks, but when i pull on a faucet handle the remaining gas in the kegs is coming out... need some beer soon !!!!!

got my C02 tank filled today and i put the system under pressure. i quickly discovered a leaking keg. replaced the O-Ring, didn't fix it. unscrewed the pressure release valve and swapped it with another keg. Appears to be okay now...

We'll see if the system maintains pressure...

yea, i just went and checked it... looks like the keg that got questionable relief valve must be leaking. lost pressure pretty quick...

i've taken that keg out of the loop for now to see hold it holds...

looks like i need a new valve...
