Kind of a crappy pic but you get the idea. All the lines go straight into the insulation through the lid so theres no way for air to leak out or in. I was going to insulate the box etc but when I pulled a pint I got no foaming so screw it I'm gonna leave it. You can see the temp controller and the light switch as well as my dual gauge regulator. This makes it really easy to mess with pressures.

Thanks, these threads inspired me to do something like this instead of freezer with collar.

I'm in the design stage of a jester style build too. The frosted glass is another thing to consider. I know you said you had the serving equipment already but where did you get it? I've been trying to find some decent prices for faucets, shanks etc.

Got them from keg cowboy. I live in Houston so I was able to just swing by and get them. Good guys and got them for a discount with their coupon code 3TAK I think it is. One thing to consider in your design, the top is heavy. I can lift it no problem but have to use a 1x2 to prop it open. I thought about trying to install a hydraulic arm for car hatchbacks to assist but never got around to it.

How do you open it to refill your kegs?

Roll it a few feet from the wall and the top opens just like a regular chest freezer. Prop it open and swap kegs.

Props! Great job, and cool idea on the frosted glass. I guess you have to be pretty careful with the glass when changing kegs, dropping free weights, etc? Or is it pretty tough stuff?

You should do a "morimoto" theme, and have colored LEDs slowly change different colors, so every time you get a beer it's glowing a different color.
