Default Through the wall 3 tap hidden keezer build -Done

I just built a through the wall keezer setup. I have a bar in the room already. I built the bar to hold two refrigerators, one for wine and one for soda and bottled beer. I also built a wine rack into it. The top is brushed stainless that I had bent locally.

This site has been beyond helpful to me in learning how to build a keezer. I did not find any examples of people putting it behind a wall and not seeing it. The closest I saw was someone who cut a whole in the wall and pushed the freezer up to it from the back.

I needed to make sure the lines stayed cold and I wanted the taps to be at a nice height on the wall. This ruled out having long shanks that just went into the collar because I would have needed to life the keezer up, that would really make lifting kegs in difficult.

I am using all Stainless steel as well as Perlick 525ss faucets.

The solution was to build a box that would house the shanks. I took the idea from coffin keezers and just made it externally.

Everything works perfectly and the system is nicely balanced. Here are the pictures.










































I finished the underside of the drip tray so the drain tube was hidden. Here is the result.

Dude...awesome, awesome work. When I own my own house, I'm going to look at those pictures for inspiration.

Very well done! The PVC pipe for the beer lines and the insulated tap box are sweet.

Great build!

As much fun as it is to follow a build through the creative process, this finished project up front is a great example that you dont always need 50 strangers' advice to be successful.

Thats awesome. Looks easy enough that even a dope like me could do it!

I was looking at these photos again. In this photo there is a little white object laying in the tap box. That appears to be a wireless weather station transmitter. I can't believe I did not think of that. We have three of those and the receiver in our bedroom projects alternating time and temp in a nice "non-offensive" red color onto the ceiling. You could place the receiver anywhere inside your home so you can keep an eye on your temp. I think I'm going to do that for my fermentation cabinet in the garage and/or my keezer in the basement

I love having the wireless thermometer in there. It is very helpful.

I am making one change to that box. The back is currently wood, but the humidity is making it warp. I cut the tolerances really tight so that's becoming a pain. I'm going to get a piece of either 1/2" or 3/4" acrylic. Should insulate better than wood, and also be awesome looking.
