Default Beer on Tap!

Well I racked my raspberry wheat into a keg today.

But first I replaced all of the o-rings on the 6 kegs I have acquired (they have already been cleaned). Then I assembled my CO2 regulator, 2 airlines, 1 beerline with picnic tap for temporary use(will become my biermeister beergun)and 4 way manifold.
I had to quickly run into town to find a pair of nipper pliers for my o-clamps(another tool for the beer, along with my dedicated corney post wrench)

My kegerator isn't finished but it will hold everything until it is. My tower plan has been rethought. I was looking at converting a old extinguisher into a tower, but couldn't find any. Then I saw a 3 1/2" truck exhaust pipe at Canadian Tire, and thought about using that. but I thought 3 of those at $30 a piece adds up. So now I am planning on doing a coffin box tap.

I still plan on having two lids for this keezer (its huge). A permanently fixed side with a coffin box and drip tray, and a hinged side so I can get the corneys in and out.







Thanks for all the help everyone.

awesome freezer looks like you could fit another keg in there, or at least another mini keg or two on the hump

Sorry for the Late Update.
The Keezer is finished (for now)
Here are some pics

Finished Keezer

Close up

Lid Open

Easy Access - Top pops off

Back panel pulls away


I drilled for expansion up to 7 faucets, and just filled the left over holes with chair bottom plastic caps

Thanks for all the help guys!

I only have 6 kegs, but I'm sure I could easily put in another 6
