old pic. he recently got a little big chest freezer, but has it all installed pretty much the same way


What size chest freezer is this? Looks perfect.

Thanks. Id really like to make a keezer to hold both commercial and homebrew. Not sure on a size yet.

that one was a 14.2. current are using a 14.7 with the same configuration but it will hold 8 instead of 7.

You need a container with a magnet to catch the caps, a'la: Sam Adams Bottle Opener and Cap Catcher.

This keezer is awesome. I'm getting geared up to finish mine since I know got 7 kegs. I knew 6 could fit in the Kenmore 8.8 but just realized it doesnt look like I can spread the faucets even across the wholewhole front like I hoped due to height of kegs on hump =[ you think iif i got 2 in shanks instead of my 6in ones for those two over the hump I could mount them over the hump?

Thanks. I think if you planned on mounting shanks over the hump, with the kegs there, I don't believe it would fit. I have really played around with it, but I know when I have my kegs on the hump, they are pretty much near the top of the lid and right up against the face of the keezer.

Got the drip tray mounts glued in to place. using tape to hold them until the glue dries.

If you don't mind my asking - where did you get the drip tray mounts? I checked a few of my regular supply shops, and didn't find any.

Thanks
