How To Keep Your Beer Keg Cold At Home...

I think that having a home beer keg refrigerator would be very useful.

I remember when I was a kid, my grandfather used to keep a keg in an old refrigerator in the basement. He cut a hole in the side for a tap and he and his buddies used to have lots of fun hanging out.

I remember one story he told, he really had the ability to tell a gripping story with lots of long pauses and other story telling ornaments. One day he and his buddies were hanging out drinking beer and the CO2 cartridge ran out. That means that there was no pressure to get the beer out of the keg and this posed a problem for the partying grandfathers. So, since he was a welder, and had oxygen canisters around, he attached one of them and they continued to imbibe in the beer.

Well, the beer quickly started to taste funny and went bad. He guessed that it was due to the oxygen since the fermenting process had restarted in the beer and it quickly became undrinkable. He called the beer company and ordered a new keg and the delivery company showed up a couple of days later.

When the delivery guys showed up and asked my grandfather what went wrong my granddad told the story about the CO2 running out and connecting the oxygen, etc. The delivery guys dropped everything and ran out of the house. My grandfather sauntered after him and asked what the problem was. The delivery guy said that he was lucky that he didn't blowup the house since the pressure build up could have blown up the keg.

Well, that is the story and I am sticking to it!
