Kegging and Bottling / Kegerator questions
« on: February 15, 2010, 11:28:34 PM »
I'm thinking about building a bar in our house, and of course I want to incorporate a kegerator.  I've looked into converting a mini-fridge as well as just buying a ready-made kegerator.  The info I can't find about both of these approaches boils down to these questions:

DIY: What is the best make and model of fridge to accommodate 2 corny kegs?  The interior dimensions of most normal mini-fridges feature that ledge at the bottom to house the compressor which, as I understand it, makes for space problems unless you can find a fridge without that ledge.

Pre-built: They all seem to come with a tower built-in.  I would want to mount the tower on the bar top.  Is it possible to remove and relocate the tower?  What's involved in sealing up the opening?  How difficult is it to retrofit plumbing (say, if I wanted to install piping and run a blower hose up into the tower to keep the beer lines refrigerated?

I'm not afraid to do the work, but I hate to spend money on something without fully understanding all the implications of trying to jury-rig something.
