    See build thread.
    Searched and I couldn't find a thread on kegerators. I'm looking at buying one either from costco or one off craigslist. What kind of things should I look for? I want one big enough to fit a full keg into but will probably just put a pony in their so I don't get tired of what I'm drinking and since it's jsut me and my girlfriend in the house it should last awhile.

    Anyways, post up a picture of your kegerator and where you keep it at in the house and whats in it!

    Had one in our house we rented in college. Damn thos were the good'ol days

    Somethings I remember about owning/living with one:
    - Know a place to get CO2 that is cheap, close by, and RELIABLE. Can't tell you how many time the guy only filled the tank half way.
    - When changing kegs around flush the hoses, the first few of the new keg will taste off. Or just a good cleaning a few times a year.

    I can remember running out of beer during parties because no one would check the supply level before hand. The thought always was, we have a whole keg in there.

    You could build your own.
    A few years back, we found a good working fridge at a second hand store. Found all the necessary parts on ebay if I remember correctly. I would post pics but the kegerator has since been given away.
    It was alot cheaper and the Killians flowed like a river all summer long!
    This pdf might help.

    Are you looking at a real keg system or converting an old refridgerator? It's real easy to convert an old refrig. to use for kegs. You should be able to find the parts in a bar/restaurant supply store or online. Some tips:

    1 Find a fridge with a flat bottom large enough to hold the keg. I had to build a short stand to level the bottom so the keg would fit. Lost some space that way.

    2. Refridgerators don't run in real cold weather, the oil gets too thick. So an unheated location can be a problem if you have severe winters.

    3. If you keep the keg in a garage, where everyone can see it, you will have lots of new friends and a party in your garage every time you leave the door open. I had lots of experience with that. Put a coffee can out and ask for donations!

    4. Don't waste your money on cleaning recirc. kits. Just buy a few long "bottle brushes" and break the system down and clean it manually. Don't let your girlfriend see the crud that comes out of the tap, she may quit drinking beer.

    Good luck
