Quantcast

Would this work for a kegerator?

Pay a little more and get the Sanyo 4912 - it's worth the 90 extra dollars and if you find it on sale, you'll be even better off.

The sanyo doesn't have a freezer compartment (which is the cooling plate) - it has a flat cooling plate all along the back of the fridge. There is plenty of room in the sanyo for 2 cornies and a 5lb co2 tank, and I even keep some 22oz bombers (can fit 4 or so) in the back of the fridge as well...

Best part about the sanyo is there is a very detailed how-to on how to build this thing. You'd be shooting in the dark with the haier (where are the cooling lines, etc. etc.)... Many people (myself included) have converted the 4912 successfully and are very happy.

Did you happen to read the Haier review on the target.com site. 1 of 5 stars, doesn't cool well (or at all). The 4912 keeps my 2 kegs cold (I keep them around 43F), but froze water when I maxed it out to test it... so there is no problem chilling your 10g of beer.

I say go for the 4912. Tried and true...

Dammit. I'm sold. Going to try to pick up a 4912 from best buy tomorrow. Then i'll just get that basic two keg setup from Midwest for 200 and get a tower on top. Does anyone know where to get those rails that normally come on pre-assembled kegerators? And how hard is all this to put together with the tower i mean?

the process isn't too hard i'm curently making my kegerator and made my own tower out of pvc pipe to save money and also so i wouldn't have to buy a new elbow shank. i can use my regular shank with no prob.
