I'm getting ready to start building my keezer, and I have a "why not" question.
I am thinking about using a 2x12 for the collar. I understand that this will add height, and make it more difficult to put kegs in. However, I can lift full cornies without any problems, so that won't be an issue. Is there any other reason not to use the 2x12?
I figure that I will run it across the joiner, and then through the plainer, so it will be more like 1 1/2 x 11 by the time that I am done.
Also, I am going to build my own co2 manifold. I figured on using copper for the main pipe, and brass ball valve fittings for each line. I know that you aren't supposed to use copper for a jockey box because of carbonic acid. Is there any reason not to use it for the main line?
