It's an old Perlick SS tower I bought on HBT about 8 months ago. Works great!

I just bought a 5CF Holiday Freezer. Gets delivered Wed. Bought a 2 Tap tower after looking at about 40 pages on this thread, Im second guessing my choice in Faucet. Any feedback? I'm wondering if I should go with a collar? It would allow to expand on more tap, but don't know if I would expand or not. Definitely second guessing my plan/purchase.

If I've learned anything in this hobby it's always go bigger/more than you expected you needed to.

Here, here! I got a small chest freezer put two taps on and already am wishing I had saved for a larger freezer! Part of it may be I put the gauges and tank inside the thing instead of outside.

What height is needed for the kegs to fit in nicely. Does it make a difference if the Co2 tank is inside or outside? What type of kegs works best.

Ball locks are narrower and therefore you might be able to fit one more in if you go with these. Unless you have a short fridge or freezer then you might need the shorter pin locks to fit anything inside. Yes the CO2 inside could also be the difference between one more keg.

Ball locks are 25" tall, you would need at least 26-27" for clearance of gas and liquid fittings.

Chest freezer got delivered this morning and turned it into a keezer in one day! Real simple build, but highly functional!
