Default Keezer build

Inspired by the how to build collar for a keezer I built this project for a friend. He wanted to have 4 taps with in his mancave with the keezer in his garage. The taps are 12 feet from the keezer so this is what I designed and built for him.

Love the setup so far. Question for you guys. What are you going to use to help keep the beer cold while running from the keezer to the tap?

Blower motor is now mounted in the keezer. It blows the cold air into the cold box behind the taps. I'll show more pics as I finish this project up tonight.

I hope your returning the air and its sealed properly? If your just blowing all the cold air out of the freezer its going to run 24/7 and burn out in an instant.

Of course. I built a lid and insulated the cold box behind the taps. The box sealed up very nicely. There are two pipes running from the freezer to the cold box the supply and return. The schedule 40 pipe is also going to be wrapped in insulation.

The performance of this system is going to be interesting, especially during the warm season...

Cheers!

I have a similar project I would like to do but go from the basement to the kitchen. Very curious to see how this turns out. Nice build.

I am also curious as to how well the fan(s) keep the lines chilled. I have been considering something similar.

This is an excerpt from the Micromatic web site:

Maximum Distance and Blower Size
The system length is limited to a 5' maximum distance due to the small size of blowers that can be used within residential grade refrigerators (or freezers). These small blowers have a cubic foot per minute blow rate of (12 to 15 CFM) which is not sufficient for an air cooled system greater then 5' in length. - See more at: http://www.micromatic.com/beer-questions/dispense-keg-beer-away-from-refrigerator-aid-419.html#sthash.1YxDtaAN.dpuf

Great looking build by the way.
