Using a Conversion Kit to Build a Kegerator
The horizontal split refrigerator is arguably the most convenient type for kegerator conversion, and the whole process will require only basic DIY skills. Here are the main steps:
- Get the refrigerator (ideally, a used one of yours or purchased from eBay/garage sale/friends)
- Check the depth and height of the fridge to make sure your keg(s) will fit
- Using a drill with a hole saw, drill into the desired location in the fridge door sawing all the way through the door itself and the plastic liner on the inside
- Place the shank (from the conversion kit) through the hole you’ve drilled and tighten it with a hex nut
- Attach the tap faucet and tighten with a spanner wrench
- Attach the beer line hex connections to the back of the shank on the top of the keg coupler
- Attach the air line to the nipple on the coupler and the one on the regulator
- Tighten the hose clamps with a flathead screwdriver
- Attach the gas regulator to the CO2 tank (sold separately) and tighten with a hex wrench
- Open the CO2 tank and attach the keg coupler. Adjust the pressure to 10-12 PSI and turn it on
