Draft Tower!

I put a draft tower on my keggerator this weekend.

I couldn't have done it without the help of this page
Converting a Sanyo 4912 to be a homebrew kegerator

Here's what I started with:

I picked up the two perlick faucets on ebay and then I got the single faucet stainless steel tower. I had to drill a second hole in the tower.

I came out pretty good.

I took the top of the fridge off and figured out where the coolant line was so I would know where to drill the hole for the tower. I cut the plastic pieced out so I could put an 8" x 8" x 1/2" plywood board under the top. Then I put the top back on and drilled the hole.

Then I put foil tape on the hole.

I put sylicon sealant between the wood and the top and between the wood and the fridge.

I put the tower together and screwed it into the plywood. then I hooked up a hose to one tank and tested it out with hot water.

I had some plywood left over, so I made a shelf for the CO2 tank and a board for the floor.

Afterwards I put some foil on the bottom board to make it easier to clean. I think I will get some contact paper to put on the boards to keep the wood from getting dripped on.

Finished product:

First pour!
