That is awesome, what is the black stuff on the bottom? Some type of mat?

You can put custom labels in them. Mine are blank at the moment so they look kinda strange, but I'll put labels in when they're hooked up to something. Oh and when I can come up with a cool looking design.
That is pretty slick. Would there be room in it to put grain in instead of labels?

I have this exact Perlick if your's is the HP24TO. I bought it cause it's rated for outdoor use and I used it on my patio. The 1000btu variable speed compressor kept it at 34 degrees when it was 104 outside, good deal. I only use ball locks in mine, but it's a really tight fit. So tight, you have to use clamp disconnects, since the ones with the mpt fittings are just a tich too high. These things are hella pricey though and the worst part is the tower isn't cooled. I ended up using a tube to vent the fan up through the tower to keep it from giving foamy first pours. Could just be an outdoor use thing though and maybe indoors it doesn't need it.

  • This comes set up for Sanky Type D kegs (obviously.)
  • You will need to run converted Coke pin lock kegs: Ball lock kegs will not fit in, and I've read that a pin lock keg with pin lock disconnects are as tall as ball lock kegs. Converted (to ball lock) pin lock kegs fit perfectly.
  • The white shelf is removable, and removed will accommodate 2 1/6th Sanky kegs, 2 ball lock converted pin lock kegs. Or, leave it in place and use one quarter barrel.

I haven't measured yet, but I am hoping a 3 gallon corny will fit on the hump in the back. Height wise, it'll be fine. . .but diameter size with the other kegs and the CO2 / regulator I'm not sure yet. If so, I am planning on eventually swapping the tower for a 3 tap setup, and running a double regulator (or a secondary.) I'd like to run water, soda, etc. off this 3rd keg.

Thanks! Yep, just some foam rubber shelf liner stuff I found at Lowe's to try to cut down on scratches & rust.

Sure, you could fill them up with grain. Thanks, I'll have to try that

I've now got two beers on tap...you can see the other handle sitting on that little stool to the left (another hockey stick). I was originally wanting to paint it immediately, but where it ended up the white with the lighter brown looks good.
