Default Keezer Update

So...I think im done...finally.

Since i first posted in this thread, I have made some improvements.

Added Stout faucet
Added brewery logo vinyl sticker
Added handles to collar for opening
Added printed magnetic labels above tap handles

I just built a lower frame on casters that I will put the entire keezer inside of so I can move it easier. I have 6 full kegs in there now but will but the cart frame on before the weekend so I can roll it right outside onto our deck for a party.

Looks nice Bugeater. I really like the labels on the top, and the brewery logo looks awseome.

Default my keezer is open for business

Hey I have been lurking and working on collecting parts for this keezer since jan. With help from my father-in-law who is a fantastic woodworker and likes to drink my HB we installed the collar this past sunday. He made this out of Brazilian cherry and maple hardwood floor planks, lots of sanding, and hard work. It is two layers with expanding foam between the two, and if you look at the lid open pic it had intricate finish to have smooth cover on top of both layers plus foam.

I had been using picnic taps and constant pressure changes between carb and serve pressures which was a pain. I now have two ventmatics and one brass old looking free faucet. now i need one more ventmatic and some nice tap handles. I can fit 3 cornies and a 5 lb tank. I got a great deal on my freezer for $40 from a co-worker, and less than $40 for my johnson controls box delivered off of ebay.
