Convert Your 'Fridge Into a Kegerator

KEGERATOR: (/ˈkeɡəˌrādər/) (n) 1) The ultimate cool toy for home brewers. 2) A refrigerator dedicated to serving draft beer.

Creating a kegerator is actually much easier to do than some may think. You'll need a drill, a 1” drill bit, a keg of beer, along with some accessories.

  • Drill your hole wherever you want your tap to be. This could be on the front of the fridge or on one of the sides.
  • Then you just slip the shank through, making sure the barbed end goes inside the refrigerator. Slide the plastic nipple over the shank on the outside.
  • Then tighten your bolts down, connect the liquid tubing to the barb with a steel tubing clamp.
  • Screw your faucet onto the shank, and screw the tap handle onto the top of the faucet, and you’re done!
  • Shanks are available in several different lengths, so you should be able to find one that perfectly meets your needs.
