That is some extremely nice inlay.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yes the beer stays fairly cold at the top due to the copper and insulation. I did not take any temps, just made sure there were no leaks. Since this won't be picked up for another day or two I can check the temps tomorrow and post them.

I did post the temps for the other keezer I built with a similar but different setup.

Probably not a big deal, by it might foam up when you first pour it.

Default temp

Well I checked the temp of the e-bay controller tonight and compared it to the beer temp. It ended up being pretty close to my original keezer temps using glycol filled tube within a tube.

e-bay temp controller = 35 F

8oz of ale = 38 F

I think I can live with a three degree increase and there were no foam issues with such a small differential.

Default carving

I wish I could take all of the credit for the carving but my daughter helped me. She picked out the design, transferred it to the wood and steadied my hand while carving. It took some time but it was easier than I thought it was going to be.
