Kegerators

General Beer Discussion by BRETT

I'm looking for a kegerator for the house. Anyone know of any good brands or ones to steer clear of?

There are several reputable companies online which sell kegging systems. They range in price anywhere from a few hundred $ to outrageous. Might I suggest an alternative? If you can find empty Pepsi or like cannisters, configure your own. If you've got a brewing supply store nearby, they should be able to hook you up with all the necessary hardware. Plus, it's cheaper. The largest single expense is probably going to be a fridge, and those can be picked up used for a song, smaller ones new run less than $150.00.

I've seen the conversion kits. Do some of the mini-frides hold a 1/2 barrel?

The kegs I've got are 22" tall. There are lots of mini's that will accomadate these. Just measure the inside of the fridge and be sure to give yourself a couple extra inches for maneuvering the kegs. And, these "kegs" will hold a 5 gallon brew. I think I read a post somewhere (maybe in the homebrewing section) where there were empty soda cans in their area available for $15.00.

Actualy Home Depot sells a nice, failry inexpensive kegerator at about 4-500 bucks. Not sure what size it holds though.
