Default Another keezer in the making!

I am planning on an Irish coffin with 2 taps, and space in between for a third later on. Just got it started this weekend. Will update when I get to work on it some more.

Edit: Almost forgot the best part, SWMBO got all the parts for me for my birthday!! I think she is almost as excited as I am to get my brew on tap!

Just make sure that you leave ventilation on the side of your freezer has it.

I was able to get a little bit more finished on the top today. I also decided to go with tile on the top. Now it's time for some brew!

I thought it would be ok not having the space between the walls and the wood season how it is going to be in the house in the ac, but after putting the IR thermometer to it, I am going to modify it. The sides of that bad boy hover around 115 degrees during operation!! I don't think I will have much trouble changing it though.

I think it makes sense to give some better ventilation, but the side where the compressor is should get hot during operation. Is it just that side or all around? Try taking the wood off completely and see how hot it gets just as a test

I actually did have it all off, and it was the compressor side that was the hottest. I have a vent to cut in on that side, and I am toying with the idea of mounting a small fan in the compressor compartment that would kick on with the compressor.
