Yet another Keezer Build
 
4 Attachment(s)

So, I bought a new 7.0 cubic foot chest feezer and converted it to a keezer. It holds 5 kegs (four on the floor and one on the hump). I put the whole thing on wheels to aid moving it away from the wall to open it. I went with the hinges attaching to the collar so I wouldn't have to lift the kegs over the collar. I just got a Beergun and didn't want to have to use it with the lid open. My solution was to permanently run a line from valve on the manifold on the inside to a bulkhead and run a line from a second bulkhead to a beverage disconnect on the inside. The idea being that to bottle from any keg, all I have to do is connect the beverage disconnect to whatever keg I want to draw from, turn on the gas valve to the bulkhead and connect the beer gun to the bulkheads on the outside. Then I can just shut the lid and bottle away. I just need to put some small labels on the bulkheads on the outside so I don't forget which is which.
