Ok, I first of want to thank you for this thread. Absolutely a help. I am pretty much copy everything but using a kenmore 8.8 and a johnson temp control. Everything else pretty much identical. Except one issue, i cant get hemlock where i live, the guy at the lumber yard recommended Spruce, says decent grain, no nots and will take cherry stain faitly well. Do you guys suggest other wise. I was also told black walnut is amazing, really doesnt need to be stained just polyed. What does the peanut gallery suggest?

Maple or poplar will work well. I used maple.

Almost any wood species would work fine. It's really what budget you have and the look that you want. Spruce would work.

How do you guys manage the moisture inside of the freezer? I notice a lot of condensation running to the bottom of the freezer. I can't believe there's no harm in letting it collect down there.

Get some Damp Rid. I got a big bucket of it at Menards on sale and have never had a problem.

I have a kegerator that has 2 taps. I have a CO2 tank with dual regulators. 1 regulator goes to a 2 way manifold and the other regulator goes to a 3 way manifold. My kegerator can hold 5 kegs but I only have 4 taps. The idea is that I have a beer serving while I am force carbing a keg. Then when all the beer is carbed up, I can set both regulators to the same serving pressure allowing me to have 4 beers on tap.

I'm trying to understand how force carbing works, say I have 2 beers and i want one at 2.5 volumes of CO2 and the other at 3.0 volumes. Can I techinally carb one at 2.5 then hook it up to a regulator that is set at serving pressure then carb the other a 3.0 and then hook it up to the same regulator at serving pressure, will both beers remain at 2.5 and 3? Or will they drop?
