Small Chest Freezer Kegerator Conversion
I recently finished a small chest freezer conversion and wanted to post this for those of you with limited space.
I only had about 35 width inches to work with in the laundry room off of the kitchen, and this unit is 33 inches.
I used the Danby 5.5 cu ft. model # 199050 from HHGreg on sale for around $150 at the time I purchased it a couple months ago.
This unit will fit 2 sixtels or 1 tall quarter.
I used a 2 x 6 collar, Perlick faucets, 12" double shank S/S drip tray, 3 1/2" shanks, primary double gauge, Johnson's temperature controller, and 8 ft. beer line. At the time of the picture I was using a small computer fan but I wasn't getting enough circulation so I picked up a 4" personal fan from Walmart for $4.00 and it is circulating very well.
Most of the parts above were from Micromatic and the magnetic cap catcher bottle opener was from XtremeBarware.com
Right now I have a sixtel of Killian's on tap and it is pouring great!
I will most likely run the drain hose out the wall and into the garage when I get a chance, right now I am just using a bucket underneath when in use.
Feel free to contact me if you are working on something similar, I would be happy to answer any questions the best I can or take measurements from the inside of the freezer etc.
