PMS question
« on: September 29, 2011, 11:36:18 AM »
Every guys dream, no not that..... a in door water dispenser that pours beer?  How hare would it be to convert a SXS fridge freezer with in door water & ice to pour beer from the water dispenser. I'm thinking the hose diamater on the water dispenser might be the main issue. A thermostat or temp controller on the freezer and it should be good to go.  It might not be practical but it would be cool in the man cave.
Any thoughts?

as you said, cool but not practical, not to mention that the shape and diameter of the faucet in addition to the diameter of the tubing plays a big part in pouring a beer with proper head and without degassing carbonation.

IIRC, the tubing inside an in-door water dispensing is very narrow - that's going to be a big problem trying to pour a beer at say, 10 PSI.

I don't think any of your friends will think a nice perlick mounted on the door is any less cool  ;)

I also think it's interesting that what they have on tap is Bell's oberon and bud lite.

Kitchen Sink Beer, what a great story.

I cant believe they actually went from the basement, through the ceiling, and into the sink from below!

Love it.  :)

Why not just make or buy a kegerator. But if you decide to go for the in door dispenser...post pics.  :)
