Hi all,

I am about to build my first kegerator in a number of years and have a few questions about how to keep the CO2 tank outside the fridge:

- How do you run the tubing? Just drill a hole and stick it through there? Use some sort of brass double ended nipple? I guess either way would work, eh? What do you do?

- The kegerator will be in the garage. I live in Georgia where summers can reach 100F outside and about 90F inside the garage. Is this a safety concern with the tank? I don't want to come home to a blown valve!

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Dean

i just drilled a hole and then siliconed it once it was in place to seal it on the inside of the kegerator
