Default shank size and collar thickness

I have read a lot of the keezer build threads and can't find the answer I need. I plan on having three taps on my keezer w/ collar. How thick are most of you making you'r collar and how long of a shank do I need.
thanks for all the help.

I have 4" shanks. Wood is 1" thick, so is the insulation.
