The goal for this project was to have draft beer at home but without the typical trappings of a kegerator system (dedicated fridge, CO2 tanks, and electrical expense) or a dedicated appliance type of dispenser system (counter space & electrical expense).
Although the DraughtKegs are a great solution, the included dispenser requires that the keg be placed towards the front of the fridge so that you and your glass can reach the plastic spigot. This instructable provides details of how to attach a standard beer tap to your mini keg for added convenience and enhance the draft beer experience without a dedicated kegerator.
Another advantage of this setup is that the rig it is not affixed to the refrigerator and can be made into a mobile draught keg. Check my next Instructable called 'Make Your Draught Keg Mobile' to do just that:
Step 1: Supplies Needed
For the basic setup you will need the following items:
Mini Keg's included dispenser
Standard refrigerator faucet (details of the tap pictured below: polished brass faucet with a 1/4" shank that measures 4 1/8" long. Includes barbed 1/4" nipple and black handle.)
About 2 feet of Micro Matic tubing 1/4 ID x 1/2 OD (internal & outer diameter)
