I really apologize for all the sideways pics. I can rotate them, preview the posting but they still seem to appear and way they want. Consider it the sideways pics an excuse to drink more!!! Eventually they will they will straighten out!!!

The great thing about used is that it doesn't cost the same as new. This is a budget build that started with a 400.00 unit.

Default Tap installation

I have to admit this took me longer than it should have to figure out. I was in debate between installing 5 or 6 taps. The collective advice, which was unanimous amongst drinking and brewing buddies was to go with 6. Go figure... Not to mention the non-drinking members of the family like the idea of homemade soda's.

I went with 4" center to center spacing and it looks perfect in person. Holes were pre-drilled with a pilot hole and then I moved to a uni/step bit to finish out at 7/8". Any deviation in horizontal alignment was minimal and the shanks needed very little persuasion to get in. I contemplated a backer on the inside between the shank nut and wall but skipped this option after realizing the aluminum interior was sturdy enough.

As far as the taps go these are Perlick 630's. I love them but have nothing to compare them against.

What's this bottle inside a bottle thing you speak of? I'm confused. I have my probe sitting in a cup of water but that is proving to be a bd solution since I don't feel my beer is as cold as I want it.

Same sort of idea. I just don't know if the standard a419 probe can get wet so I am trying to keep it in a dry container inside of water. In the pics below the probe is submerged in about 500ml of water.

Best way to check the beer temp is to probably pour a glass and insert a second thermometer that you trust.
