Kegerator out of mini fridge


Hello everyone!

There is a used appliance store near where I live and they have a bunch of used mini fridges. I want to buy one and convert it into a kegerator, but there seems to be a million videos on how to do this. I'm just looking for someone who has done this before and what video or instructions they used. Also! Does the brand or type of mini fridge matter?

Any advice helps!

Thanks,
Tom

Necessity is the mother of all invention. Keeping beer cold seems like a necessity.

Be sure to take picture/video if you do it.

Will a keg actually fit in a mini fridge?

Re: Kegerator out of mini fridge


Is this going inside or outside? How big is the mini fridge youre looking
to purchase? If its a 4 cf ...I think it that size would house a quarter of a keg.

we had two of these ( indoors) they took Heineken small kegs
that you could purchase in the supermarket for 18.00 to 20.00...

The first one broke after a several months, they sent a replacement,
again the second one broke...Its a piece of junk...It was sure fun
while we had it though...It was light enough to carry outside for BBQs.

Our friend had a big kegerator in his den...It was too big and cumbersome
for my taste and he constantly complained that the beer wasnt cold enough.

We have a 4.4 cubic foot small fridge outside for years...it keeps beer, soda,
and juice drinks nice and cold...

BTW, you can buy these small fridges for 100.00 to 129.00 all over...my guy
thought about making a mini kegerator out of our old small fridge that we
had...(at one time we had two fridges outside) I talked him into putting
on the curb instead, (it would be too much of a hassle getting the kegs and then
returning them ) It was picked up in about an hour.

I was thinking of doing one like this but never got around to doing it.

It would be nice when having a bushel of crabs.
