A coue of weeks ago, I was able to get an old, best up kegerator from a friend of mine. It was in horrible shape and I already had a fully functional kegerator on hand. So, as a new home brewer, I figured it was time to finally make a fermentation chamber to better my brewing process. I plugged up the old hole with some spray in insulation and purchased a Johnson temperature controller. My only problem with the set up was it was ugly as hell next to my kegerator. So I decided to build something to house the whole set up and make it look a bit nicer. My first stop was to Lowes to get some of the materials I needed. Once I started building it, I realized I still had the daunting task of making it look nice. So, I headed over to the ISO: Brewerania forum and was lucky enough to find a bunch if generous folks that were willing to donate some bottle caps. Here's the first portion of the build with a few caps laid on top. After the donations came in, I started laying them out to see how many more I'd need. I also decided to use the craft beer carrier cases I had been saving to decorate the side panels. Just as I thought I was done, I decided to up the ante and add a top portion to it as well as stain the bottom. I added the Johnson controller to the inside support beam. Then I stained the top. After the stain was added, I put the top panel and the side shelf in and started laying out a pattern on the shelf. Now that all the building is complete, all I have left is to glue down the caps on the shelf and countertop in a pattern and I've decided to grout the whole thing rather than use resin because I'm going for a mosaic look. Ill post more pictures of my new bar as I make some more progress. Hope to have this project done by next weekend.
