    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..

    Ooo, very nice. It'd be sweet to be able to get Three Floyds kegs.

    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:

    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.

    I cut off my commercial couplers a while back and only pour homebrew now.

    Currently on:
    Berliner Weisse

    More Berliner weisse

    I was debating buying a sixtel of Nugget Nectar but after having a bottle of it, I think I'm going to pass this year.
