After replacing all those parts, aren't you really just buying a fridge w/ a beer logo on the side? Wouldn't it be more economical to buy a 'regular' fridge and mod it as necessary?1 word of advice.
The items that come in the kits with most kegerators are mostly junk.
Upgrade the faucet, keg connector and Co2 regulator for MUCH more reliable operation.
I recommend the Perlick Forward seal faucet. No sticking and better pour.
Does anyone own one, or know about them. I am going to buy one with my stimulus check, plus a barrel of something tasty.
Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
Conversion kits are a great way to go, but you can't buy full kegs in the US... Bars can't even get them...
You have most likely been tapping half kegs. These are the standard in bars.really? last I checked US stands for America... patriot states founded by brewers!
Well, cant you at least borrow them with a deposit? It's sorta the same thing... unless all the kegs I've been tapping are half kegs or something.
Oh, ok... so a half keg has 15 gallons and a full keg has about 30? Thats a lot of beer... ~250 lbs worth! Those half kegs are freaking heavy as it is... I can't imagine trying to move a full keg around.You have most likely been tapping half kegs. These are the standard in bars.
