I have been looking for a kegerator to enable me to more regularly drink my favorite local beer (Manny’s from Georgetown Brewing in Seattle) and yesterday came across this ingenious kegerator hack on craigslist.
The biggest problem with making your own kegerator is that the freezers and fridges available tend to be the wrong shape and size to fit what needs to go in the fridge. The solution posted here uses a regular chest freezer and a self-made wooden frame to make it taller. The result is a not-so-ugly kegerator serving four beers on tap! I love the idea.
The craigslist post will go away when it is sold, but I saved the pictures and original text here for future reference.
* Converted chest freezer with a nice stained oak collar added on. Fully sealed, nicely insulated, very low power bills.
* Small footprint for it’s beer serving capabilities : 23″x28″x42″ (you will probably want to transport this upright so take that into account.)
* Comes with x4 cornelius kegs, all with seals in good condition.
* Bonus half size 2 gallon keg, I used this for cleaning solution for cleaning the lines. Comes with cleaning solution and brush for tap cleaning.
* Internal brass gas distribution block with 4 shutoffs, comes with leak detector fluid in case of issues (never had an issue with it though)
* Quick disconnect for external gas tank. Comes with 10 lb gas tank (testing up to date) with nice regulator. Tank
* Uses a thermometer power passthrough to regular cold (you can dial in the temp if you want to use this for lagering)
* Bottle opener attached as well, what more could you ask for?
