I have a 5.0 cu/ft freezer that I want to convert with 3 taps. After measuring, 1 corny will have to sit on the compressor hump like yours. Do you have any problems with those cornys not being cold enough?

I admire his determination not to waste beer but that drip tray had been emptied twice that day already and was probably pretty funky, plus half if not all of the glasses they filled were dirty.

Just finished my keezer this week. The wood work isn't perfect but it'll do until I can score a 14cu ft on craigslist and turn this into a lager box.

I actually just finished my keezer today and keged a brown ale. The two hinges are nice in that you can just open the top to check on things. The hinge on the collar allows easier change out of the kegs.




Did you just use plain old air compressor regulators. I'm thinking of it do to cost saving.

No that is a Taprite secondary:

Taprite Four Regulator

The outlet valves are not check valves so I got these inline check valves to prevent the possibility of any beer back flow:

PVC Check Valves

HST and Ralph Steadman. He also does Flying Dog labels. But the fridge is a great canvas. I'm trying to decide what to do on mine when I get home.

Amazing how complicated the forward and backward movement of a Beer tap can be. I made those heavy ass chain handles because a ton of my friends would half open the tap and pour a big glass of foam. They are so heavy they almost flop forward on their own.

I was super confused for the first 6 months I had my keggerator up and running because people kept walking into the living room with big pours of foam. I kept messing with Pressure and line length trying to fix it. Then I watched them pour and realized they just can't figure out the complexities of perlick!!!
