    Kegerator that would fit a 1/2 barrel keg?

    My Kegerator...she dies. :(

    You can get cars and condensors re-charged so i imagine you could find someone to recharge a refrigerator. Probably you could call a appliance repair shop and it would be cheaper than a brand new refrigerator. Unless you want to upgrade or something.

    I need a good False Bottom. Please help

    Can you use sch 40 pvc for the manifold? Making one out of copper would cost a fortune at current market pricing. Maybe the false bottom is the way to go for 25 bucks.
