I just got done with a kegerator.

I'm going to clean up the seal, I think I'll see what a mitered seal looks like.

Love the wood work! Looks really smooth. Good choice in taps, as well.

I straightened up the seal a bit. Looks better. Now I need to get to work on some tap handles.

It's not full though!

Time to remedy that with the most balanced IPA I know how to make.

1. Black Pepper Ale
2. Sam's IPA
3. Massive double IPA (~8%)

Some friends and I made a kegerator. Probably one of the worst choices for our health we could have made! Good times...

Yeah, probably not so good for your physical health. Quite possibly good for your mental health though! :D

What fits in there? One full size keg and two little ones?

Assuming he's using 5 gallon soda kegs for his homebrew, there's probably room for at least 4, maybe 5. Three on tap, and one or two on deck.

I'd make one in a heartbeat if SWMBO wasn't so dead-set on NO!!.

3 on tap, one on deck. I do a couple of 10 gallon batches here and there, so no need to have two of the same thing, especially when the taps cost $50-60 each when all is said and done.

Ours has two taps, and just barely has room for three corny kegs and the tank. It was made from the tiniest freezer I have ever seen. Seconded on the "good for sanity" comment.
