That looks the job
Mines not far off
Just need to give it a final coat of paint and we are done.
I need to get the finger out and build one only problem it has to go into the garage which is detached from the house.
Mines in the garage, until I build the brewpub in the garden, which won't be any time soon.
Mine's in the shed about 15ft from the back door - but far enough when it's this cold out.
I have seen your 15 foot pipe with beer direct to your lounge
The less said about my 15 ft pipe the better
Definetly looks like a proper job! Looks great
Wow what a set up, is this hard to do and very costly, how much do those kegs cost, are they sugar primed or forced co2. Look great.
Dan will force carb.
I bought this https://brewkegtap.co.uk/collection...m-kegerator-kit-2-kegs?variant=12441841795153
All you need for running 2 kegs. I bought a fridge for £20 and 6.5kg of gas for £25. Will post pics once paint dries
Another good build here.
yeah, I force carb as Leon mentioned.
Its really easy to put together;
3 x 22m holes in the door for the taps
2 x 10mm holes in the side for the CO2 coming in
And all the pipework is push fit
As for the cost.....depends on how much you get your fridge for etc. But I just spent £90 for the fridge (inc delivery from local 2nd hand shop) and £125 on a 3rd s/s tap and replacing all the fittings/pipe inside the old burnt out keezer, and tidying up the gas lines. I already had the kegs and 2 taps.
Awesome!! It's the future OK. Thanks chaps I need to get my head around all that. I was thinking of buying plastic barrels this I worth the wait and extra cash but I've a bit of learning to do i think.
My next project is a kegerator, especially after my experimental dry run with the dark farm 10ltr sodastream kit. Just wanted to see how easy it was / could be. No more eff13n’ bottling for me gents! Just 3 or 4 bottles each batch. Brewkegtap looks a good source , any other recommendations?
I managed to cut out the shelf fixings inside and can now fit two kegs. Only got one tap so the other will be back up. BBQ and Beer area all coming along nicely now.
Now I've a question myself on this subject. As I posted in another thread the under counter fridge is ideal except for being just several cm short width to fit both my corny kegs it. However, that aside and using this more as a test project I'm wandering what's the best way and how do people remove the inside of the fridge door?. As in the plastic panel on the inside door itself that houses the shelves, egg holder etc. As it looks moulded with no obvious way of removing it. So how do others do that part without making a right mess?.
Depends on the mould, any pictures? Can you cut it?
As everyone else has said. You need to build yourself one as you'll never want to go back afterwards.
I chopped the inner door mouldings on mine to fit the full 4 kegs in. Just get a sharp safety stanley knife and away you go. Easy!!!
I bought these and used one on the end of a cordless drill to cut through the plastic and then cut away some of the foam insulation with a craft knife.
