One of the best I've seen! Looks great.

Is there any concern of overheating, placing all that wood on the freezer?

I left an air gap between the cabinet and the freezer. Also this freezer has an external condenser coil so I dont think heat will be a problem.

Love the Keezer..

...it's been a couple of years now - how's it working?

I'm planning to do one very similar to yours - as you know, there aren't many out there like yours.

Can you tell me how you did the top - did you use your original lid or did you create a new one from wood and use insulation?

Would you do anything different now that you've had it for a couple of years?

Thanks Much

Hi

You actually will do better with a sensor taped to the wall of the freezer. That assumes you can set the controller to an appropriate cut in / cut out. If it's one you can't set, it's likely already set up for "tape to the wall".

I know this sound like you are not controlling things as well. Think of it as controlling the temperature before it gets to the keg.
