Thanks! I hope to get a good amount of work done on it this week as well. I want it to be ready for the "I am a homebrewer" video!

I like what you have done. I have 6 taps on mine... and a 25.3 cuft chest freezer... One thing that I will be doing with mine is removing the air and putting it outside... I like to cold crash my beers and having loads of kegs in there and carboys/ buckets can be a bit problematic... You might want to consider this as well.. Mine is nothing special but: here's how I did my wood top:


Please excuse the messy basement... Its since been cleaned... oh yea and the crap beer is no longer in there either.

JoeC I hope you are going to remove the window treatment and are going to paint the walls if you truly are making this a VIP room...

I sure hope that probe is water proof!

Sorry, I didn't add that I put plastic wrap around it because I was afraid of something shorting out on me. No worries

Quick and easy waterproof for probes:
I have this roll of duct tape - the real stuff that HVAC uses, adhesive backed foil, NOT the cloth stuff. One simple fold-over on the probe.
