@matthewgardner, I really dont have any idea how to give teh advice on building that... i kinda built it as i went along..

But i guess first figure out how you want to place the kegs in there... that way you can get an idea of how much space you need in the fridge... from there i measured out how tall a bomber is plus 1 inch and split that for the three shelves... (the bottom shelves are half shelves due to the compressor and everything else under the fridge) it was a lot of measuring and tinkering... after i figured out those things, i went and bought finishing pine (1x2 = .75" x 1.5) for the whole thing. First started with the platform that the kegs sit on... (knowing how much space they needed) then build the middle arms that go up and the short ones to stabilized the shelf built at level...
then built the shelves...

Cheers!
Here's a closer picture. It's just an AMD CPU fan I had lying around, it's meant for 12V.

I got a project box from the electronics store, and the grey fitting is from the hardware store, it's some kind of PVC conduit fitting. I used velcro to attach it to the wall of the fridge.

Hope this helps.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good source to get small railing to put along the perimeter of the top of my keezer? Looking to add it to three sides (left, right, and back), and then put some bar mats on top of the lid to stack glassware. My searching has led me to foot rails and arm rest for the most part. Cheers!

Try Lowes or Home Depot in the cabinet hardware section for drawer handles

Thanks, I'll have to check into that. Looks fairly simple

Rockler has a ton of hardware like this. Here's a wood version:

Thank you sir for the follow-up. Do you get much airflow through that hose? (I mean, if you unkink the hose I'm just curious about having the hose exit radially on that style fan in such a tight enclosure...

Cheers!

Seems ok, even kinked. If I open the top of the tower I can feel a bit of air coming through the hose, I'm sure that's enough to make the difference. I am keg conditioning my first beer which won't be ready for about a week and a half though so we'll see how well it works in operation.
