After a week of scrolling through this thread I am ready to make a keezer. My brain is bursting with ideas. Every kegerator large and small has inspired me. I have a Admiral freezer that is about to get a total makeover.

Who has the best deals on kegs, lines, faucets and such?
What makes Perlick superior to standard?

I found Kegconnection.com to be very reasonable for all of my needs.

Well, I just finished my Jester knock off.



I did the coffin a little different. I built a tower out of copper and PVC and then built the coffin around it.




I also drilled my holes for the faucets straight through the granite tile. Took 2 hrs to get both holes drilled. I backed the tile up with a piece of sheet metal for support.

As you can see, I decided to recess my lighting above the taps. I like the way it turned out.

I used 1/4" oak veneer to skin the freezer. After much research and debate, I opted for the skin instead of the ventilated ducts.

Other than that, its pretty much similar to all the others. If anyone has any questions or wants a build thread I am more than happy to do it.

First pint!



Thanks to everyone who's ideas I stole! There are tons of great keezers on this thread and I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at each one of them.

Here's my Treasure Chest keezer. I still have to make my tap handles, a drip tray, a few trim pieces, and mount the CO2 regulators. It's been a great project and works great. It's a 7 cu ft Holiday freezer with an Automation direct temp controller and motor starter. there is room for 3 corny kegs and a 6 gallon carboy. I have 3 Perlick 525SSTF faucets. They work very nice....Right now I only have a porter on tap but will be brewing something real soon. I haven't had much time to brew while working on this. I won't have to bottle anymore so that will save me some time!
