    Kegerators are easy to make. I picked up a scrath and dent 10 ft^3 (I think) freezer from Home Depot for $80, bought an Auber Instruments PID and wired it up to a solid state relay to control the cooling compressor. Easy enough because the thermostat on these types of floor standing freezers are simple. Drilled a hole at the bottom of the freezer and pushed a K-type thermocouple into the freezer and hooked it up to the PID. Nnow I can control within 0.5 degrees F how cool the kegerator is for my brews.

    Built a cheap wood "top" for a 3 draft tower and I can fit 3 soda kegs of beer and 1 10 lbs tank of C02 in the kegerator.

    It saves so much time on bottling. And you can wheel these out for neighborhood block parties I have mine on a dolly cart for that purpose.

    Less than a Type 3.

    I collected everything at different times over the years. The brew stand with controller, pump and keggles was around $2500 as I recollect.

    I have a bunch more gear, gonna trade my old 8 gal mega pot with valve and temp gauge plus banjo burner stand to a buddy for Maple syrup.

    kegging

    when I cleaned bottles, I just soaked them in the bath tub wish oxyclean, risned them, then ran them in the dishwasher afterwards on hot with no detergent. Dishwasher rack also doubles as a drying rack.

    Soak them in hot water and starsan sanitizer. Doesn't need to be washed of, cleaned, dried or re cleaned.

    starsan is the brewer's best friend.

    If you want to get rid of dried on gunk, soak in oxyclean. That shit will strip yeast cakes off of your carboys/buckets/fermentation vessels without scrubbing if you give it time.

    I do that waay before. After I'm done the beer I just rinse out the bottle. Or the next day. Fill with water a little, place thumb over opening, shake it up and pour it out. Done!

    I used to like the SaniStar cleaner because it did not require a rinse or drying before use.

    I have those 2 boxes of mrbeer supplies..I need to see if the pigerator is still in my basement or not as I could make a small batch and put it in there instead of having to bottle.

    Yep, hot water oxyclean over nite soak. Gunk and even most labels come off. Starsan for the sanitize before filling.

    For really tough brew mess PBW and bottle brush or SS scrubbie will take out the toughest accumulations.

    Some bottle label residue may need WD40 wipe down with a rag to remove.
