Nice find on the drip tray. I paid $10 more for mine.

If i could make it bigger you could see that it is textured spray paint from home depot. It looks really good up close and I bought wood that looked terrible. I did use some putty on the screw holes and some other uneven spots.

I bought one on Sunday at a Home Depot store, but it was the last one. It fits a single carboy (5 or 6.5 g) if you don't have a collar. I can check the keg sizing later.

Got four pinlocks inside with a 5# CO2 tank that need to be refilled. Upgraded while refilling to a 10# tank. Just barely fit that in as well, a lil stressful, but it made it.

Here is a close up of the paint I used. I currently have a 5# bottle, corney (first brew not yet carbed), and a 1/4 barrel skinny in there. Nothing on the hump but an emergency 12 pack of sam adams. I should have gone with shorter shanks

I finally unpacked one of these this morning (took the day off). I had never even checked my keg fit inside this thing. So, here is what I have:
2ea 5gal ball locks
2ea 2.5 gal ball locks
I was hoping those 2.5s would fit stacked as they are built to do but they are too tall. I was certain that both would not fit on the shelf and I was correct about that. I thought removing the handles from one would make them fit stacked on the floor. But the valves are just little too tall and I don't want a collar. I can sit one on the shelf and the other one halfway on the shelf with something under it for support and still get a third 5gal keg inside.

It is now running with my 16yr old Johnson Controls controller at 38F. I have an STC-1000 that will be built into the coffin box this weekend and I'll put the old JC back into a safe place in case I need it.

I was going to use one of these freezers in my garage for fermentation, but I think it may get too hot in there in summer. The manual says not to install in a garage or any place that can get above 85F.

I've got mine on my back patio. I did read that in the literature, but I'm rolling the dice. I've also got one in the garage

BTW, are those 2.5g cornies bigger in diameter? I have 4 ball locks on the floor right now.
