With the primary components needed to prepare your standard refrigerator for a beer fridge makeover, this keg refrigerator conversion kit is budget friendly. What a great way to repurpose that old fridge and wow your friends with your ingenuity.
How the Basic Kegerator Conversion Kits Works
With the components in this door mount kegerator conversion kit, you can easily build your very own keg fridge. First, you need a refrigerator large enough to hold the keg size you plan to purchase. You will have to drill a hole in the door or wall for the cylindrical beer shank to stick through. The shank comes with the hardware required to secure it in the door. On the outside of the door, the beer faucet attaches to the shank. The faucet knob or handle will fit on top of the faucet to make it easier to dispense the beer. On the inside of the fridge, a beer line hose attaches to the shank that will go down to the keg. There is a washer that will seal that connection. Also supplied is a hose and worm drive clamps that can be used to connect a beer keg coupler to a CO2 regulator once you have acquired those two components.

To Complete Your DIY Keg Fridge
The other parts you need to complete your home keg fridge (apart from a refrigerator and a keg of beer) are a tank or cylinder for your CO2 and a regulator for it. This single gauge regulator is a popular and inexpensive option. You will need a keg coupler that will fit on the beer keg you choose to use. It will attach the CO2 supply to the keg and get the beer up the line to your faucet. Rapids does sell a Super Kegerator Conversion Kit and a Deluxe Kegerator Conversion Kit with all of these components.
