Draft build, advice needed.

Post by Three sheets » 4 years ago

So I'm playing with the idea of building a small 2-3 tap draft system and I'm looking for some ideas, possible sources for supplies and a rough cost estimate. I'm trying to build it as cost effectively as possible.

Which is better, ball or pinlock? What is the best source online for regs, kegs, and taps, and where is the best place to get gas and a tank?

As for chilling, I'm still not sure if I'm going to go with a keezer or modified refrigerator. Still not sure where to put this thing as space in my house is limited.
