26-February-2010 - I got tired of stooping down so low for a beer and I also wanted a little more interior room for my kegs so I sold my old kegerator and picked this puppy up on craigslist.  The freezer is on the bottom so it makes the taps so much higher and more comfortable for a pour.  I remade the drip tray as well as the old one was kind of hacked together.  Now I can fit 6 kegs inside comfortably and it is much easier to swap out a keg after it kicks.  My beer lines are all 9.5' long (3/16" inside diameter) and my pours are so easy to maintain the perfect amount of head.  It takes about 18 seconds to pour a beer with perfect control.  My temp is steady at 42F and my regulator is set at 12 psi.  Below are some pictures of the new setup.  Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Previous Kegerator - Freezer on Top

09-September-2007 - After bottling over 6600 bottles of beer over the last 6 years, I decided to take the plunge and start kegging my homebrews.  I had no room to store a full size fridge but I didn't want a small kegerator so I sold my full size upright freezer which I kept in the furnace room adjacent to the bar.  I put the freezer on Craigslist and sold it ten minutes later for $120.  Then I picked up a late model Kenmore fridge with the freezer on the top which I found on Craigslist for $80.  My wife was happy because she still had freezer space for those things that you don't want to keep in the kitchen fridge.  I went straight out of the gate with Ventmatic faucets, stainless steel shanks and a nice stainless steel drip tray.  My gas manifold has built in check valves for each of the shut off valves so there should be no backflow of CO2 from one keg to the next. Here are the pictures:
