ok, so ive been brewing for a few months now, and duw to the fact i (as im sure many other do) hate bottling, im looking at getting a keg system going.

Im looking to get a chest freezer and converting it, or ideally getting an already converted chest freezer.

Im in geelong but would be willing to get a ute or something and travel pretty much anywhere in vic to get one if some one is looking to sell.

Also looking for the kegging equiptment and anything else i might need to get this up and running.

ps

i was looking to do something like the bar at the country brewers (although i have never been there or seem it myself) heres a pic of what i mean.




thanks


also if anyone maybe in geelong or melbourne with alittle experience could help me set this all up when its completed that would be great, and im sure i could hook you up with some free brews and travel money.

kman,

Your best bet maybe to try keeping an eye on the Trading Post. That is how I finally got mine.
Went to a few auctions too like Grays but you tend to get second hand dealers there buying them all up.

Good luck,
Doc

kman,

Try Dave at Hop to it. He is selling a ready to go set up. Its a new Fysher and paykel(?) chest freezer already converted(thermostat),piped and tapped with a dual font. Around the $1500 mark. The freezer will hold about 3 kegs(Maybe four) only.
His number is 02 9666 3661. I reckon the postage will kill you though. <_<

went to a second hand store today, and i didnt see any, but i asked the dude and he said there was one out the back they were holding for someone else. I ask if i could check it out, and it is pretty small (maybe fit 3 kegs and some bottle or glasses or something) and i asked what they were charging. He told me i could have it for $150, but i haggled him down to $100.

So i picked it up about an hour later.

Pretty happy with that.

Anyone know where i can get a bar top like the one in the picture made up?

Or where i can get a thremoststat (sorry, i cant spell good)
