Instructables
Picture of My Kegerator Project
This is my new kegerator I just finished building. I used a 4.6 cubic foot Igloo fridge from Walmart. I bought a door mount keg kit from Beverage Factory and built my own tower. It's big enough to hold a sixth barrel, 5lb c02 tank and a homemade cooling fan. Hope you enjoy!!

Step 1: Removing Parts

I needed to remove the door panel which contained various shelves to give me more room for the keg and tank. I removed the door and underneath the rubber seal are a bunch of screws that I took out to remove the seal and panel.

Step 2: Putting Door Back Together

I then used a dremmel tool to cut off the edge from the door panel. This edge contained all the screw holes. I simply put the rubber seal back around the trim piece and screwed it back to the door. I then reinstalled the door to the fridge.

It's not too late to coat all the wood with three coats of polyurethane. Then it will be easily cleaned and will resist damage from spilled liquids.

Thanks Zargon!! If you build one you'll have to post some pictures. Be careful drilling the top, most have the lines running through the top. If you mount your kit in the door you don't have to worry about it though. Just take your time cause once you hit one, the fridge is worthless.

Loved your Build! I've got two batches of killer suds'a'brewing right now... only one Corny Keg.. but you have inspired me to get busy on a version for myself.
Thanks for a job well done, well illustrated and pretty easy to follow.
Good thing you went easy with that hole-saw.. I've often wondered where they put all the tubing for those things... never thought it would be in the top though. Go Figure. But, I will be doubly careful when I make mine.
Now... off to find a bargain "Victim" for MY Kegerator!

Well thanks! I wish I could take credit for the paste idea but I saw someone else do it to theirs!
This looks great! The tip about using paste to find the cooling lines is brilliant!
