Finally got some more work done. Applied 2 coats of poly to the top and 1 to the bottom. This oak really sucks it up. It will take many coats to get it done but its a start!

Also routed some lines, added in the manifold to split some lines, and got some organization done so that the stout keg can sit up on the hump.

I've gotta thank you, nab911, this thread is what I used to decide to go with the Idylis freezer. I wasn't sure if it was big enough to fit my needs, so thanks for showing me that it would fit 4 regular taps and a nitro tap. Eventually I'll make mine a coffin keezer like yours, but for now I'm happy with how it turned out. I'm still searching for the right sized drip tray, so for now I'm just using a towel on the floor. imageuploadedbyhome-brew1419796966.226070.jpg

Looks good! Have you actually had 5 kegs in it yet? I am going to be kegging another soon and will have a full line so it's going to be a fun game. Also, have you used your nitro tap yet? I made a guinness clone that is delicious but does not have the head or cascade it should.

Sorry just saw your reply, the app hasn't been notifying me of replies for some reason. I've only had 3 on so far, how is it doing now that you've got all 5 in? I've noticed that my lines are a little warm so I'm gonna add a fan for air circulation.

I haven't really gotten to use the nitro faucet yet. I brewed a Robust Porter that I planned on putting on nitro, but when I finally got the tap set up the keg kicked after half a pint. I'm gonna brew a stout soon so I can put it to use.
