I be a newbie. In fact, I've never brewed beer. Drank a lot of it, for sure, but never brewed. Been doing a lot of reading though.
Today I took the first step. I bought a fridge.I know, first thing you need to do is buy a kit, but I figured I need a place to put that beer and from what I've been reading, bottling is a royal rectal discomfort, and I ain't doin' it. Straight to kegs, yessir. So, today I Craigslisted my way into a $50 Sears fridge. It's an up/down with the freezer down. The upstairs measures 18D, 28W, 33H and according to my calculations that should fit 3 on tap, two backups and a CO2 bottle quite comfortably. The downstairs looks like it'll hold 50 lbs of ice for the jockey box.
It'l sit right off the kitchen in the mud room with three taps on the door. A little further down the road there's room for another one next to it as a lagering fridge. SF1 and LF1......lol.
