Using a Conversion Kit to Build a Tower Kegerator
First off, you are going to need a mini-fridge - not necessarily a new one. Any used mini-fridge that’s in good, working condition will do. Second, you need to get a kegerator conversion kit from Beverage Craft (a no-brainer!).
Finally, a CO2 tank filled with CO2 - they are shipped empty so you will have to get it filled at your local welding supplies store or brewing equipment store.
Once you have all of that, here’s what you need to do:
- Remove all the shelves from the fridge
- Using a hole saw, drill a hole through the top of the mini-fridge to run the beer line from the keg(s) to the tower
- Mount the draft tower on top of the fridge drilling four small holes for screws to go into
- Attach the faucet and tighten with a spanner wrench
- Attach the beer line to the back of the shank
- Attach the air line to the nipple on the keg coupler and the one on the regulator
- Attach the gas regulator to the CO2 tank
- Open the CO2 tank and attach the keg coupler. Adjust the pressure to 10-12 PSI and turn it on
