I built it! Click the link under the picture for how it was made The tap is a random one I got off ebay, I think it was originally serving fizzy yellow cider.

Did you modify the bottom in any way? I have a similar Rockstar cooler, but it's just a bit too short. Like literally less then an inch. I'd have to do up a new lid to make it work, as the keg is basically sitting in the motor as is...or find some way to relocate parts so the keg sits in there deeper.

Either way, that's baller...

Nice work. Your tap tower has a certain 'steam punk' look about it. Might do a bit of goggling for ideas but you could go with a bit of copper colored paint or contact paper, some faux rivets & banding for a boiler look on the cooler, maybe an analog temperature gage and a pressure gage mounted on some external copper colored plumbing, do a little faux gage with a clock hand on that round part behind the tap handle.

Really nice, I would leave it as is. A post of the build would be nice.

Yep, I second this. Steam punk sounds extremely cool with your setup.

Poured by first beer off yesterday! Great success.

Updated the original link with details of how the keg and co2 fit inside. Happy holidays guys!
