Punk Rock Kegerator Build - "Sheena"

Postby robwalker » Sat Jan 28, 2017 16:48

I've been gradually collecting bits and as of today my fridge is totally functional so thought I'd post.

2X chrome taps, 2 corny kegs with gas and regulator. With a few M of line it pours well at around 2psi so I'm happy.

Just gotta finish the "decal" and make some blackboard signs for the changing beers, plus one of the black tap faces was damaged in transit so there's another coming. I might install a couple of valves on the line that I can turn on and off too seeing as my dogs are locked up near the taps when I'm out. Currently serving a Sticklebrackt IPA 4.8% and a Vienna ale 5.2% conditioning in the fridge at work.

Cheers!

Presumably because Sheena is a Punk Rocker.

Lookin good..

Might be worth considering getting a few meters of 3/16" microline plumbed in between kegs and taps, the thin line is more manageable letting you coil it neatly (well ish hehe ) and due to its restrictive qualities will allow you to maintain the kegs at a higher pressure and retain condition as you do run the risk of loosing condition from the beer if maintained at a nominal serving pressure and not drunk within a few weeks.

You also may find a squeezy bottle handy to rinse out your tap spouts between sessions, any residue could attract fungus gnats or wine flys..
