Old Brass Ten Tap Tower Restoration Project
 
2 Attachment(s)

My wife saw this 10 tap tower at the an Antique Mall and bought it for my birthday. (I love my wife!) Supposedly it was taken out of service from the local Bennigans when all in the area were shut down a few years ago. It needs some love and I will attempt to restore it to its former glory rather than piece it out for parts. It really will not take much, just needs some cleaning, new O-rings, new tubing, new insulation, and the rusted steel parts need to be replaced by brass. I will keep this thread updated if there is interest.

Anyone know what sizes internal O-Rings are required for these faucets?

My current house does not have room to really put this tower in service (no space for a 6-8 foot chest freezer) but we are going to be looking at houses next year and I will be looking for a brewery space.
I love my perlick faucets and will likely upgrade to them eventually, but that will be at the tail end of this project.
One other challenge will be to build a glycerol cooler if needed to keep the tower taps cool to reduce foaming; the tower is already set up to accept one.

Few tear down pictures, currently soaking in PBW to remove all the dry/sticky beer residue and spider nests.
