I'd drink beer out of it.

Great build! Looks like flawless construction, I'm very impressed. Are you still having condensation problems? I've got a similar unit and I think the fans blowing air into the coffin is bringing in moist air from the outside down into the freezer. I've tried several things but nothing seemed to help during the summer months, not as bad this winter though.

Thanks for the comments! Best remedy I've found is leaving a towel in the bottom to soak up the condensation. I'll change the towel out every so often with a dry one. Other than that I don't really see much else that can be done

That's what i've resorted to as well. I think this summer I might buy a small dehumidifier and see if it helps.

thought about that but I've seen too many cases of mold in a cold room/refrigerator when cardboard has been used. If anything I might pick up a big jar of desiccant from work and place that into the keezer.

I am building a keezer and am going through ordering all the parts. Where did you order the drip tray from? Everyone I find is either super expensive or has a plastic insert. I am looking for a stainless steel flush mount with drain.

I ordered mine through Keg Connection but it wasn't cheap.

The one I got was through Beverage Factory. At 36" all stainless you're looking at $100+. Not sure how much the drain adds on. Basically there aren't any cheap large driptrays anywhere.
