My Kegerator

As tonight is going to be a great night to sit back and enjoy some home brew, I figured I'd post some pictures of my recent kegerator build. It all started when I bought a new refrigerator and decided to spare my old one.

 After a good amount of thought, I decided on a 3 tap system which I can always expand on later.

 I didn't take enough pictures to do a step-by-step guide or anything but it was pretty much just drilling 1" holes through the door to allow the beer shanks and faucets to slide in.

 Here are what the shanks look like from the inside, with beer hose connecting them to their corresponding kegs.

 The red line is the gas hose that infuses the beer with CO2 and pressurizes the kegs for dispensing. I used a dual gauge gas regulator to carbonate properly and keep a proper dispensing pressure.
Regulator and Kegs
 I used a 3 nipple gas distributor so I can split one tank of gas to 3 different kegs. Each has it's own shut off valve for when it's not in use.

 When everything is hooked up and the beer is carbonated, it's ready for drinking. Here is a shot of almost everything, including some bottled home brew on the top shelf.


Who's thirsty?
