My recently built 5 tap kegerator
« on: April 27, 2011, 11:27:57 PM »




Still tweaking it a little.  I am going to run the stout faucet on beer gas, and I am going to finish the 4 New Belgium tap handles on one side with chalk-board paint.  I will leave the other side of them with the original logo.

Looks great!  Don't open the freezer unless the fridge is open too ;)

I had one like that, it had a plate screwed into the freezer door so that you couldn't open it without opening the fridge door.  It saved me from some spilled beer.

That's a good idea with the plate.  I have made the mistake once, the in-laws who just flew home tonight made the mistake way too many times! >:(  I think I will steal your plate idea though.  ;D

You can do it on the inside of the door (by the handle works well) so it doesn't mess up the nice outward appearance.

I got a second place in the 2011 Kona Home Brew Competition in the 06 Light Hybrid Beer category.  Pretty cool for my first competition!  Too bad there were only 3 entries in this category.  At least I placed highest!
