    I've been wanting a Kegerator for awhile now, and finely pulled the trigger. I decided on a Haier HBF05EBSNK-2 with duel Perlick stainless faucets. I don't know that much about em so what do you guys think?

    Nice move Jason! That's it, my mini fridge is moving into the shop.

    Edit: You got the faucet locks right? :D

    Total was only $593.00. + 120.00 for shipping. I purchased it from http://www.beveragefactory.com for cheaper than I could get it locally, CRAZY! http://www.kegeratorkustoms.com <- this is the local company I thought about using, but they couldn't even compete with the Beverage Factory.

    This bad boy has a spot carved out in the kitchen. Yes I did pick up some faucet locks for it, the last thing I need is my step daughter steeling my brew LOL.

    My 1st keg is going to be my favorite honey wheat brew, Beehive by http://www.bristolbrewing.com/. I'm not sure what I want for the 2nd tap, I'm thinking a nice Pilsner (Yellow Kite) also by Bristol. If I can't wait the 2.5 months for Yellow Kite to be released (seasonal) I might go with Happy Hop Pilsner by http://www.bullandbush.com/beers

    You'll love the Perlick faucets more than you'll ever know (unless you've used other ones in the past and know how big of a pain they are).

    You should try some Grimms Brothers if you haven't. It's in Loveland and my buddy is the brewer/co-owner there. They specialize in German styles and most of there beers are very good.

    For the slight upgrade cost, I couldn't pass the Perlicks up. I've never heard of Grimms Brothers, I'll look um up :)

    PS. I pick my 1st keg up at the Bristol tomorrow afternoon, YESSSSSSSSS!
