My 5 tap setup from the basment to kitchen.

I wanted to wait until I have the last 2 taps in and have some writing on the board, but the anticipation for feedback is killing me!

The keeper is in the basement. I made my own trunk line and am cooling with a loop of water from a corney keg in the keezer. Pours are great even when it hasn't been used for days. Runs are about 12 feet and I'm getting good pours at about 12 psi (a little slow, but tolerable).

Full write up to come after my Halloween party this weekend!

Love the setup. Can't wait until I live in a house with a basement so I can do what you have done. It is so clean and well executed.

By the way, I noticed a few people asking about the lack of drip tray. I personally don't like the look of a drip tray and have been fine without one...I can't remember the model number for this exact unit but it has been very effective at eliminating spilt brew.

I don't think I remembered to shoot the video. I am still running the lines uncooled, just an insulated trunk line. I think I will eventually move to a glycol chiller if/when I move to conicals, but for now I just use it as is. Works great and people love the beer. This is only about 10 feet of beer line run. Garage to kitchen might be another issue depending on distance.

New picture if taps and new tap handle (Xmas present).
