So here is a question for those of you that might know. About how may amps does a PC fan pull? I want to run 4 fans, 2 in the keezer and 2 to help pull warm air out from around the casing. I have a 12v 1.2amp power supply, but I am not sure if that can easily run 4 fans or if I need to put two on that one and two on another power supply.

EDIT: Nevermind.. I found the answer to my question. Found a screen shot that I can blow up of the fans I am getting. Says 12v 0.18A.. so 1.2A should be enough to run all of them.

Ok guys.. sorry I have not posted any updates but the progress as been a little slow lately. And what progress I have made has not been really picture worthy. So here we go...

Started doing the wiring.. this 4 plug box will be constant power, I have a power strip attached to my Ranco temp controller too. The fans in the freezer will be constant powered, fans on the outer case will only kick on with the compressor to pull warm air out of the shell.

The switch at the top will have my rope light plugged into it and allows me to flip the switch to turn it on. You can see one of the case fans in the middle.


I am not building in any kind of tubing to pull the air into the coffin right now. Going to see if a fan blowing in and one blowing out will push enough air through it to keep the temp where I want it. Here is the out fan.


Here is the in fan.. you can also see where I made the part of the lid that I cut out look a little better by flipping the plastic I cut off over and putting it back in.


Here is the case fan on the other side..


Here is the hole picture of the wiring..


Here is the fully assembled picture without stain. The spots on the front are wood filler. It had just been put in, not sanded yet. It looks much better now.




And the staining begins!


Top, front and back of the coffin


Tomorrow should be a great day off work.. going to stain the rest AND brew while things are drying. What else could you ask for.. working on my keezer while homebrewing!

You're right.....sorry, I went back to the 2nd page of your thread to take a peak. Very nice, should look great with the stain! I look at so many of these threads, that I forgot that you posted a pic. prior. Great work man, your almost there!

The stain is Cherry by Cabot. Had planned on using minwax Cherry (it's a little less red) but I think this color looks great. First coat is on the base and strike water is coming up to temp! . Brewing a simple cream ale today, hoping it doesnt need any age time and can be kegged and ready to drink for my Halloween party on the 29th.

Ok.. been a long weekend and I am not just talking about the number of days I been off work. Here is the progress I made today.

First coat of stain on the base


Both coats on the top.. and added the backer board:


This is what I call a good day.. brewing homebrew while waiting on the stain to dry between coats:


Tomorrow I am hoping to tile the top, but that is if I can get the pieces I need cut for the back splash. And finish staining the cabinet doors. After that it is basically just final assembly and clear coat.

Here is a shot of how the back splash will be laid out.. got to get some pieces cut, then we will try to actually glue them down. Have to thank my SWMBO for this.. she did all this herself.


Here is the top after the second coat.. you can see the hole in the cabinet that my gas line and stuff will go through.
