You have to get a picture of your first pour!!
Now that the hard work is almost over -- I think the fun part is finding cool tap handles

Thanks for the write-up. I have a 2 keg system coming from keg connection and a spare freezer in the basement. Just need to get the materials!
If I may ask, how did you attach the collar to the lid? I'm considering attaching the collar to the freezer because I wasn't sure how to attach it secure enough to the lid.

Thanks!

some guys just have the collar resting on the keezer, some guys use silicone, some guys liquid nails.

I personally would have it as air tight and insulated as possible

Nice looking build.

What did you use to temporarily plug the 2 extra holes for the faucets that you don't have installed yet?

Some cheap plugs from home depot. About $1 a piece.

I couldnt get the right angle on the collar with my drill bits and kept breaking them so we settled on glueing it. I used some heavy duty construction adhesive (supposely like liquid nails.. possibly better) and let that sit. once it was done setting (takes 1-7 days) then i lined it with caulking.

Rope caulk and just the weight of the collar works for me. I did not feel comfortable using liquid nails or silicone caulk.
