It doesn't look like you have the stereo on in the pictures. Those speaker grills have functional speakers behind them, correct?

Now I wish I had saved that old wood-cased TV. It would have been perfect for something like this, and I could have easily mounted the tap-tower on top (try saying that five times fast).

Thanks all. It was a ton of work but with 8 gallons of red ale and 5 gallons of a blue moon clone ready to be put through it, I'm sure it will be worth it. The bad part is that I'm traveling so much, I haven't even pulled the first pint yet.

I thought the same thing about my grandparents old tv. I like the final result on this one but I continually worried it was going to be too modern for my tastes. As my wife says "[I'm] an old man."

Finished product is awesome, I love it! Hmmm, I've got an empty stand up arcade game cabinet that I have been looking for a use for, this might be perfect.

That could be awesome. You may even get 2 kegs (or more) into it, if you can do a 2 tiered thing with a 5 gal corny in front and a 3 gal, with the CO2 on back.

Well done. One of the most creative projects I've seen to date.

Thanks.

We pulled the first few pints off of it last night. I need to dial in my pressure, and I probably will force carb my next few batches to see how much things change. Right now I have 2 taps that flow somewhat slowly and one that pours almost all foam because of the carbonation in the keg. I figure if I drink enough, eventually it will balance out.

Edit: Oh and the ac runs for 5-10 minutes for every 60 minutes it's off. The only problem is it's kinda loud. Need to figure out how to dampen the sound, but luckily we know some acoustics engineers.
