How To Build a Kegerator

I have a dedicated fridge for kegs and beer so I thought it was time to take my beer fridge to the next level and add a tap to it. This kegerator build out how-to walks you through my process of converting the fridge which involves building a base to support everything – many of these older fridges have crisper drawers under the bottom shelf and they are made of plastic and cannot sustain the weight of a keg and a CO2 tank. And if you plan to have multiple kegs (which I plan on in the coming weeks) you do what I did and roll up your sleeves, add some elbow grease and build a solution.

Parts Needed

  • Corny Keg
  • CO2 Tank
  • Dual Regulator
  • Quick Disconnects
  • Shank
  • Hose Clamps
  • 3/16″ Vinyl tubing
  • Draft Faucet
  • Spill Tray & Tap Handle

You can find kits that come with nearly all the parts included like this fridge conversion kit from Northern Brewer. Or you can buy them separately which might save you a few bucks.

If you have any questions leave them in the comments section and I’ll be happy to get back to you. Cheers!
