How to Build a Kegerator Keg Box & Beer Tap System
|EMBP-03 DIY Keg Box Guide|
Learn how to build a home made beer tapper system. This easy do-it-yourself beer home brew kegerator plan will show you how to take a few common items and an affordable beer tapper tower kit to build your own keg box. The EMBP-03 Guide is applicale to the follow projects:
- EHBP-03 Straight Kegger BarEHBP-04 L-Shaped Kegger Bar
- EHBP-09 45 Degree Corner Wet Bar
The entire project will run just under the price of a cheap store bought Kegerator. The good part is, you also get an entire home bar too!
The basic principles you will learn in these plans will help you design any type of Kegerator system. Our members have modified the plans to build "wall mount" Tappers where the equipment is kept in a back room behind the bar or "end of the bar" keg boxes to hold multiple kegs, which again, use the passthrough of the wall to house the bulky equipment and kegs in a back utility room.
If you buy cases of beer, you are probably spending about $18.00 per case.
A standard half barrel of beer contains 15 gallons of beer or about 1920 fluid ounces which equals 160 12oz servings. That is six and two thirds cases.
If we round up to 7 cases (to cover the cost of gas every time you need to run for beer) the cost is about $126 for 7 cases of beer.
As of 2013, the price of a 1/2 barrel of beer is roughly $90.
So, if you like tap beer and you want to save money, this project can pay for itself in just a few years of use. If you entertain a lot, maybe a few months!
