Default Keezers never get old, do they? My build.

Brand new out of the box.


Holds 11 kegs. ZOMG!


Building the Freezer extension:





Building steel frame for cart body:





Had to mount the frezer backwards due to a miscalculation on where the holes went on the lid.

Building the lid:

underlayment was cut using a shopbot


Existing lid disassembled


Cutting the air loop for the liquid lines


Assembling the lid






Gas lines and drain line to run through the lid




Toilet flanges to accept the air loop and fan assemblies for liquid lines




The functional mock up:


Finish work going up


Water jet cut stone (quartzite)




Silver wrapped tube is the miter cut and insulated air tube for the liquid lines


and the lights!


More finish work






Tap Handles


All together now!

Thanks!

A little more detail, the lights and fans are driven by a reed switch and several SSRs so that they turn off when the lid opens, and an overhead light turns on so i can see what im doing.

The lid is pretty heavy, but it is supported and operated by a linear actuator (lifts 400lbs!)

Temp control is located in the back of the tap box (love controls) and the probe is in the whitelabs yeast tube. I put vodka in the tube so it doesnt mold or freeze.

The bottom mat i put in so that the kegs dont sit in water if there is any condensation. there is also a drain solenoid that will allow me to drain the bottom without having to fumble around in the bottom.
