    I'll get things started in this forum...for those of you with kegerators, what's on tap right now? I have a 1/2 barrel of Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA.

    Mine is a homebrew kegerator I built out of a chest freezer. I have 3 kegs on right now: Honey Golden Ale, Hoppy Amber Ale, and Jalapeno Oak Stout.

    Finishing up a 1/6th of North Coast Old Rasputin, and should be getting Nugget Nectar this week. Also have a 1/6th of Evolution Morning Wood (BA Coffee Stout) I'm holding onto for St. Pats day, but it's on the second handle, kinda quietly..

    2010 Lost Abbey Deliverance (1/6bbl) that's tasting excellent...the age has really smoothed it out.

    I'm preparing to upgrade to a 5-tap system, which for now will consist solely of homberew. I have an Amarillo Wheat and Cascade Kolsch carbed and off to the side. A DIPA with Citra, Centennial, and Sorachi Ace is carbing alongside a hoppy brown (Chinook and Centennial). Next week I'll carb up my Dubbel. With that, all 5 should be ready for our March 3 moving date.

    Just finished up a 1/6 of Troegs Javahead stout, and picked up a 1/6 of Dominion Oak Barrel stout to tap tonight. Trying to get my stout fix in before moving to the hoppy stuff in the warmer months.

    I bought an old, beatup chest freezer cheap:


    Then got to work fixing it up:


    It's the fastest kegerator ever built.

    And for inside the house:


    Pic was taken at an old apt.

    I have Christened my new dual tap kegerator with the following:

    1/6 Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.
    1/6 Wolaver's Oatmeal Stout

    I have to tweak my kegerator before I replace those. I need longer lines, right now I am drinking 1/2 to 3/4 foam pints.

    What do you think about the Ruthless Rye on tap? I think it's a bit "tamer" than the bottles, but I'll have to check the keg date to see if I've just got a slightly older keg than the bottles I was just drinking. It's still a great beer, even if I'm paying a premium to have it on draft (can get equiv. ounces in bottles cheaper than the 1/6bbl).

    In the process of converting a chest freezer or a fridge. I have most of the pieces except for the fridge/freezer. I have a test keg set up in the garage filled with Vanilla Cream Soda (yummy). Just trying to decide which way I want to go, leaning towards a fridge at the moment.

    You may be right on the "tamer" aspect, yet I find that with most keg/bottle comparisons I do. Still a solid beer in my opinion. I paid $65 for the keg, about the same as bottles in my area for the same quantity.
