Default My Keezer build.

Spent a week or so putting this Keezer together. Frigidaire 9.0 cu. ft. from Lowes brand new. Went with 1"X6" knot free douglas fir and liquid nailed two together to get a stronger 2"X6". Used Minwax oil based stain. The color was Gunstock. Perlick taps and stainless 4" shanks with nipples.

Looks pretty sweet!

Very nice!

I did the same with my smaller Frigidaire--collar on the freezer, not on the lid. It's been no problem loading kegs.

I have it set on a carpeted furniture dolly so I can roll it around. Its fairly tall. Just got a couple kegs in the mail from kegconnection and don't have any brew to keg yet. I'm using it as a fermenter right now for a Kolsch I just made. Had no problem loading the 5 gallon carboy.
