I built an enclosure for my kegs to dispense chilled beer to my kitchen taps. Sort of a kegerator but with remote taps. I already had my kegs on a shelf in the cellar, and taps in the kitchen directly above. So all I needed was a way of chilling and insulating the kegs.

here is the maxi 110 chiller unit that feeds the cooling coils in the chill chest next door - note the STC temperature controller that switches the internal pump on at a set temperature.Maxi 110
here's the kegs showing the 10mm copper coils mounted on battens, backed with insulating foil.Kegs, shelf, chiller coils
here's the gas bottle, mounted outside the enclosure. I mounted my pegas counter pressure filler on the door of the undercroft. It was the only possible place. The cellar is quite small.Pegas
This shows the cooling water tubing coming in from the other room and the gas piping from the bottle.Bottle and reg.
Here is the assembled enclosure - isn't it shiny?Installed chiller enclosure

All in all cost me about £60.
It will hold temperature at 8C with ambient currently at 15C. I hope in the summer it will keep my beers at 12C in 20C ambient.
