The Keezer (n): a badass homemade kegerator. One of the single most satisfying projects a homebrewer can ever take on. Not only is it easy to do, it's fully customizable: you get to design a home taproom that fits your exact needs, space requirements, and aesthetic.
That means personalized design, homemade tap handles, and no limit on the number of kegs you put on tap. If you love hands-on DIY (or if you're dying for a home tap system but don't want to buy a kegerator), it's time you took the plunge.
Once your system is running, you can tap wine, cold brew, sparkling rosé, soda water--the list goes on. For a full rundown on kegging's possibilities, check out this article.
What else? Oh, yeah. A keezer is ridiculously cool.
Here's What You'll Need:
Kegs - the same amount as desired # of tap handles.
A chest freezer with the space for that many kegs (NOTE: 1 ball lock keg = roughly 9 in. x 24 in.)
A CO2 manifold - distributes CO2 to each kegs. Try our Keezer Gas Line Kit for an easy option with everything you need. Just pick your size. (NOTE: We recommend a slightly larger model, which provides a few extra ports to use with a bottle filler like the Last Straw®.)
If you lack the space for a full chest freezer, consider building a mini-fridge kegerator with the Draft Brewer® Kegerator King package.
