My 5 tap setup from the basment to kitchen.

I wanted to wait until I have the last 2 taps in and have some writing on the board, but the anticipation for feedback is killing me!

The keeper is in the basement. I made my own trunk line and am cooling with a loop of water from a corney keg in the keezer. Pours are great even when it hasn't been used for days. Runs are about 12 feet and I'm getting good pours at about 12 psi (a little slow, but tolerable).

Full write up to come after my Halloween party this weekend!

Amazing, I love the concept!!
Is there any sort of cooling inside of the black tube?

That's just awesome. I've gotta run taps up to my kitchen when we renovate...ya know, in 20 years :o

Man that's nice! We are getting ready to build a house and you have me thinking maybe I should have a pipe run for something like this. Do you have a solution cooling the lines or do you just pour and toss the first foamy pull?

I described the cooling a bit in my first post but I'll repeat it since a couple people have asked haha.

I have a spare corney in the keezer which is filled with water. I have a pond pump from harbor freight in the corney which is pumping constantly through a loop of vinyl tubing that is sandwiched in between the serving lines. It works great. I actually didn't have a ton of problems when I simply ran lines prior ro building the trunk lines, since they are so short. I'll be able to do a head to head comparison tonight when I run the two addition lines because they will be uninsulated until I rebuild my trunk line to include them.

Thanks for going into detail on that! Apparently my eyes were set to 'skim' when I read your op :smack:
