Glue down your collar with a bead of 100% silicone caulk.
You'll want to keep your eye out for a nice piece of stainless sheet to put on the wall and attach a drip tray at the bottom if you don't want to keep a towel on the floor.
Your right for sure! Every other project or hobby i get into, I end up going crazy over the top. I probably will have 10 taps before long. I definitely plan on a SS back plate and drip pan and I am going to remove the cheap weather stripping and use silicone sealant.
I have a few more questions:
1.) when adding the hinges, I just let the lid lay on the collar under its own weight. Should I have applied some pressure to make the gasket on the lid seal harder?
2.) Will the weight of six or eight kegs be too much pressure on the bottom of the freezer? Is it necessary to cut a piece of 3/4 plywood or similar to disperse the load evenly? Or am I thinking too much?
