Thought I’d share a few pics of my kegerator. Our Sears closed down a while back and we picked up a new fridge during the sales. This, ofc, freed up our old fridge to be repurposed for greater things.
I left some room between the two Perlicks for a third which may end up being Kombucha… the jury is still out on that one. I need to build a shelf inside for the kegs to sit on and work on a hose management solution so, while not complete, it’s functional. I mean… that’s the important part, right?
All the wood, is just hacked up mesquite branches from around the yard except for the mitered pieces around the block part of the tap handle. I think those are oak… walnut? Idk… some scraps i had laying around.
To give me a way to swap out name plates as the kegs change, i just installed four neodynium (sp?) magnets in the handle and then i just mount the name plates on a piece of sheet metal with some epoxy.
I got the stainless tray from Amazon for about $30. First I thought about screwing it to the door. But then, since the tray needs to be removed to be properly cleaned, I considered mounting a wood backing board to the door that would have two mounting screws/studs that the tray could slide on to. Then, as a brainfart, i wondered if hard drive magnets would be strong enough to hold it on. Turns out, they do!! Maybe a little too much so, actually.
Anyway, that’s what it is for now. Will likely evolve and change in the months to come.
