So I was out of town in Portland this week for work sampling several delicious brews of course while I was there. Got home late Weds night and subsequently had a long day at work Thursday. So I get home from work and go to pour a pint out of my trusty kegerator. My black IPA came FLYING out of the tap. That seemed extremely odd as it's been on tap and pouring beautifully for almost three weeks. I check the regulator on the back, pressure is spot on at 9 psi. Then I opened the door and found the inside of the kegerator was warm. I checked the GFI and the breaker to make sure that wasn't the issue but the thermometer I keep inside read 67 this morning so I'm afraid it may be done. I'll do some additional looking at things over the weekend, but talk about the worst possible weekend for the kegerator to die.
That being said, if it is in fact now dead, I will have to decide if it's time for an upgrade to a 3-4 tap keezer or upright kegerator instead of the little bar-sized two tap I have currently. I can probably talk the wife into either, anyone have any tips or preferences on keezer style vs standup? My dad has a full woodshop in his basement so making a collar shouldn't be terribly difficult if I go keezer style. I know there are some nice builds on here for both that I've looked through previously.
