    Some of you may remember a post I made years ago showing pictures of a kegerator I built. Here's the updated version.

    First, the door. I've got two forward sealing stainless steel faucets and a stout faucet.

    Next is the inside of the door. I ripped out the inner shelving, shoved in some plywood, and added a shelf to hold the jug that catches all the excess drainage.

    [​IMG]

    Next is the inside of the kegerator. Only fits two five gallon corny kegs. But at a cost of $10 (Craigslist), I can't complain. On the right hand side of the picture, I've got two disconnects coming in from the outside for my beer gasses.

    A picture of the outside gas disconnects.

    Running gas tubing over the laundry.

    And finally, storage rack with my two gas tanks. A 10# C02/Nitro mix (for the stout faucet) and a 5# C02 tank with a double regulator for dispensing gas at two different pressures.

    [​IMG]

    In the kegerator currently are an Amber Porter (a porter fortified with Macallan Amber Liquor) on nitro pour and a hard cider that's been aged for a year (8.6% ABV).

    I've got a few gallons of a strawberry banana mead, five gallons of a wee heavy and a vanilla cream ale ready to go as well. :D 

    The hoppy red ale just started fermenting.

    In two weeks I'm brewing a stout. I'm going to split the batch into a coffee stout and a regular stout on a nitro pour.

    In four weeks, I'm going for a straight forward lager.
