Here's a pic.  I use a stainless steel mud pan attached with magnets for the drip pan.

I love the drip pan idea!
But....stainless shouldn't be attracted by magnetism.....
With the help of google I find that some stainless can be magnetic, but usually not.  So what is that shiny drip tray?

Cheap Stainless Steel I guess 'cause it's on there tight & the manufacturer said it stainless.  ;) I bought it @ Menards for ~$10. Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

I mounted mine with heavy duty Velcro.  It's self adhesive and works like a champ.  Magnets wouldn't work on the drywall mud pan I have.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

For my tap handles I glued thin sheet steel onto 2.5" X 5" pieces of oak, then used the very thick magnet paper to write the beer name on.  When I change beers I just peel the magnet off and put it away until I have another keg of that beer.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I knew you were kidding, so was I...... ;)

Oh, pulled an Immelmann on me did you?   ???

What a balloon buster... :(

For my keezer, which uses only cobra taps, I bought cardboard tags with strings attached...write the beer name on the tag and tie to top of keg.
A friend writes on the keg tops (the rubber part) with a silver sharpie; it rubs off when he cleans the keg.

When I first did my kegerator I used chalk board paint on the freezer door. After time I switched to 4x6 clear magnetic picture frames. I some times use gimp to make my labels and when I am lazy I use http://www.beerlabelizer.com.

Hope you enjoy!!

For my keezer, I came across whiteboard paint at Home Depot.  It was $18 I think and is 2 cans that you mix together to activate it and I rolled it on the top of the entire keezer (3 coats).  So the entire top is now a whiteboard for dry erase markers.  I can write the name and all my notes (OG, FG, IBU's...etc)

I haven't heard of whiteboard paint, I am going to look for that. I think it will look better on my kegerator than the chalkboard paint.
Thanks!

I bookmarked that  http://www.beerlabelizer.com website.  THat is cool.  I recently started a thread about the tap handles I made:

I was motivated by those tap boards, but they seem pricey to me.  While not as elegant, these will be quite functional.
