1st piece purchased yesterday

5.8 CF Magic Chef Beverage Center

on sale at home depot with a $50 rebate

will hold 2 5Gallon kegs inside with a 5 lbs co2 tank or 145+ bottles/ cans

the owner of my fav brew pub is gonna hook it all up for me

also he should be able to get some of the parts / pieces cheaper

someone at the brew pub did the same exact one and i'm stealing his idea / plans

went to his home and liked what i saw

he has 2 MC Bev Centers

1 converted into a keg and the other for his bevs

anyone have a keg/bar set-up in their place?

thats why you get a 3 gallon set up

24/25 glasses of beer

i figure a 5 gallon (around 40 glasses) fill up will be about $1-$1.25 a glass

Good point. :g

I've always had mixed feelings about kegs.

On one hand beer from a properly tapped keg can be excellent, but I've had my some really piss poor glasses as well.

That said I tend to stick with bottles when at home and leave the kegs to the pros. Although beer from the tap at a bar is not always good either.

How long does the beer in a keg stay good anyways?

you must have clean beer lines at all times

that is a major prob with bad tasting keg beer

Well 24 glasses can be done in one night, so I think you're safe.

Well, I was going to say, about the same as here but instead, I'll say

Not if you want them to use the pole.

Exactly. Had a kegerator, and you'll know when the lines are dirty when you have little bits of black flakes in your beer. Must also have a proper amount of C02 as well-too much it gets too foamy. None and you have flat beer. That's an art in itself!

So what is your first keg gonna be?

I think a kegerator would be pretty dangerous at my place, but i'm gonna get one eventually anyways.

prime time to buy beer at a brewery

when they have a little left of the "older" beer and they have a new beer on deck

they should sell it cheaper to get rid of it
