While in the process of building my own coffin keezer and researching all of the different designs / threads throughout this site I thought it would be helpful for others in the future to put a list together of all of the coffin keezer builds that I found. I compiled a spreadsheet with only really five columns now - HBT Member, Thread Name, Date (date completed or date posted if the project was completed before the initial posting of build), Link to Thread, Link to Image (Most Recent or Best View of overall design). I then took that spreadsheet and parsed out the columns to make a listing with pics here. Through my initial somewhat thorough searching I found 25 keezer builds, whether they are threads or just one post with an image.
I try to scour the DIY Forums every few days or so, so chances are if you have a build thread and its in that part of HBT, I'm already subscribed to your thread and will add it here when your build is done. Then again if there's some that I am missing, please point them out! If anyone has any suggestions about other relevant data to collect or a better way to do this, please let me know. Thanks for the great builds everyone!
What is a Coffin Keezer
Loosely defined it is a kegerator comprised of a chest freezer to keep the beer cool with an Irish Coffin Box on the top of it. I love seeing keezers / kegerators of all kinds, but I wanted to try to maintain a list of just coffin-style keezers. If you have a build with a tower on top or taps coming out of a collar - make a build thread and / or post pictures of your creation here - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/show-us-your-kegerator-29053/ - TONS of people follow that thread.
Total Coffin Keezer Count (that I could find on HBT): 161 (as of 2/27/2014)
Nice work Jeebas! I'm proud to be part of the list of HBT coffin keezer builders/owners. If someone would have created a thread a year ago like the one you have started now, my life would have been much, much easier during my build. I commend you for taking the time combing through threads to find them all, it must have been a lot of work. Especially when most of the threads don't have the word "coffin" in the thread names to make your searches easier.
There are hundreds collar keezers and kegerator builds out there, so I think it is pretty cool to have a thread devoted to coffin keezers. Coffin keezers offer so much more design and style options, not to mention extra engineering to accommodate insulating and cooling the coffin....but then again, I may be a little biased. What a great resource you have create for yourself and those who wish to follow in all of our footsteps with unique coffin keezer builds.
Great job and I can't wait to continue to follow this thread as new coffin keezers are added. I love going onto each and every thread looking for ways to improve upon my design and equipment. I continue to be impressed by the creative designs and craftmanship that people put into building these things. Keep the thread updated for all to follow!
