Using a Homebrew Kegerator Conversion Kit to Build a Keezer
Despite having a fancy name, a keezer is nothing more than a chest freezer repurposed for dispensing kegged beer. Building a keezer is a fairly easy process if you have some basic DIY skills and, of course, the right keezer parts kit.
- Getting a chest freezer
It all starts with a chest freezer, which you can easily get at any home appliance store or buy a used one on eBay, Craigslist or Kijiji. When looking for a chest freezer, you have to decide on these three things:
➔ Space and placement
➔ Capacity and volume of beer
➔ CO2 tank - inside or outside?
- Once you’ve got a chest freezer and your conversion kit to convert a refrigerator or keezer, it’s time to proceed to the conversion stage.
- Disconnect the freezer door hinges and remove the lid of the freezer
- Build a lumber collar to house the tapped faucet(s)
- Assemble and connect the gas side and liquid side tubing
- Reattach the hinges and lid, attach faucet shanks and faucets themselves
- Set the temperature control and pour a glass of beer!
Of course, this is just one of the possible ways to build a keezer if you have a keezer 1 tap kit. For more useful information and homebrewing tips, be sure to check out our blog.
