Did you know that you can convert an old refrigerator into a Keg Cooler? While this may not pass a health inspection for your restaurant or bar, a converted refrigerator Keg Cooler makes an excellent backyard drink dispenser. The Internet is full of how-to’s, and well…. here’s one more.
Step 1: What You’ll Need…. Check appliance stores, Craig’s List and your local newspaper for old refrigerators. Make sure the refrigerator is at least 24 inches high and 17 inches wide if you want to fit a standard 1/2 barrel keg. We also recommend that you leave about 5 inches on the top to leave room for the shank and hose. Next, get the Keg Conversion Accessories. You’ll need:
- Aluminum CO2 Tank- 5lb tank will last 7-8 kegs and the aluminum will not rust.
- CO2 Gauge
- 5/16″ CO2 Line
- 3/16″ Beer Line
- D-Style Coupler
- Drip Tray
- One Fiber and One Neoprene Washers
