Not a keezer; just a Danby kegerator.

Been keeping a look out online for nice handles for it but no luck so far.





Has a pony in it right now of Blue Moon. It's what the girlfriend wanted and since she paid for half of it I figured what the hell.

I am whoring it out as much as I can so I can put some New Castle Brown Ale in as soon as the Blue Moon is out.

Here is mine. My parents had this freezer in their garage for years and never used it. They let me have it and I converted it to a lager-er & kegerator.
I homebrew, so it can fit two 5 gallon corny kegs. However, the CO2 doesn't fit. I'd like to drill a hole in the side at some point for the hose.
Here is a picture before I painted it red.


Inside (with one corny keg)


Dual tap!


New tap handles! You can see I don't have room for the CO2 here. I just set it on top of the lid, or if I take it to a party, I'll set it on the floor.

Nice man, can't wait to see the finished product. Blue Moon was killed a couple days ago. Half-barrel of Newcastle should be here on Wednesday.

Too bad the GF isn't a fan of IPAs.

I had one for years, when a buddy moved to the east coast. Full-size standup fridge. He came back and I gave it back.

Welp. After 18 days of ordering a half-barrel of New Castle it finally came in today. Going to pick it up tomorrow afternoon. Nothing better than ice cold beer on tap!

I just recovered my old stand up fridge from a friends house. They are moving into a new place and don't need it anymore. going to put it in my garage and convert it to a kegerator. I am not sure if I want to double tap it and build a stand to hold 2 1/4 barrels or just a single 1/2.

Thoughts?

Tomorrow brewing an imperial brown ale and also Deadringer IPA...
Almost done with a Belgian Triple on tap now.

Here's my build (i call it a kreezer, since it was a freezer) :

I figure the inside is way too standard to include!

pic 1: almost done! even a rolling dolly for moving.

Whats with the wood? Was your keezer too short for the keg, and thats just to make room for the taps? (Not a bad idea for me to do, actually.)

I could be wrong, but IMO it is a Keg/fridge vs. keg/freezer. If not, sorry.

A few names....kegerator, kreezer, keezer, and so on, and so on......

They both have pluses and negatives. I had a freezer we were not using. It holds 2 kegs plus CO2 and a few 6 packs or 750s. But it has to have a collar and a temperature controller. But with a fridge you either use party taps or drill into the door. I like the collar personally, if my freezer dies, I reuse the collar!

My kreezer is the black and green one.

I have 2 hop beauties bubbling away right now!

Oh, and about the wood, you make a collar because you DO NOT want to drill a freezer. There are a ton of different ways people design the tap placement etc, but I came up with this for mine. Most can't figure out what to do with the drip tray.....I knew where I wanted it, NOT attached to my freezer.

Look on YouTube. There are people who give video instructions on building them....i think the guy I used also has videos for restoring his MG too. Great help it was.

And I love green and dogfish head beer, so green stain/marine-grade sealer and black chalkboard paint.

Good luck if you build one. We absolutely love ours. Wouldn't go back to bottles EVER.

I may be wrong, but I believe that a fridge door and a freezer lid are more alike than a fridge door and the front body of a freezer. Refrigerant lines are an unknown around the body of a chest freezer, but in the lid they are absent....same with a fridge door, it is basically a wall of insulation that opens and closes. No lines to be wary of. I'm really just thinking of it in a common sense way, not that I've actually drilled either. Maybe someone in the HVAC type field can chime in definitively.

I mostly knew that if someone mention refrigerant lines and that you can't be sure where they are, and people do hit them drilling, that a collar was a more fun and cheaper option!

Hope to hear a proper answer.

Happy brewing! I now have on tap a dry hopped IBA, and a hopped IPA....next to brew is a Belgian red ale (sour) and a German heffe.
