Indeed, I did.

I’ve had a converted fridge for about 10 years… but it’s on its last legs. Took a couple of days off from working on the Mini this week, to build a new one…

Had an old compact chest freezer that was full of old food that we’ll never eat…
So cleaned it out and gave it an extreme makeover.

Upgraded my existing 2-way picnic faucet 10 pound CO2 system with new 4-way manifold, and additional couplers for a third keg (either Sankey or Cornelius ball lock).

Installed new air cooled tap tower, with three Perlick flow control faucets, and drip tray.

Have some stainless rails I’m going to add around the top tomorrow. Then will be done.

I kinda get carried away, sometimes. 

It’s hella nice. Have Carolina Brewing Company Oktoberfest, and Fortnight Brewing Company English Ale on tap now. Started a batch of Wellzy Compound cider and will have that on tap in a couple of weeks. Will empty out the old fridge and it will go bye-bye. More space for garage gear!

In classic “me” form, I told the wife on Saturday that I would do it over a couple of months.

Monday, it was operational.

Wednesday, it was pretty much complete.

Friday, it was done.

Haz Railz.
