Here are a few pics with the "cap" off. The collar, made of pine, will be tiled. With the collar attached to the hinges, as is, it basically weighs nothing. These hinges are extremely stout. With the tile we're going to add some weight, but nothing I would worry too much about.

Nice. I love that beer. The spot I usually get it at in Charlotte was out, but I did score some cans of the Hop Drop & Roll from NoDa Brewing. If you haven't had this one I'd check it out.

Keep us updated on the keezer.

NoDa is the bomb! Lucky man, we don't get that here yet. Glad to see they're canning too... They're blowing up

Wow. Very creative design. I actually just ordered the GE 7.0 from HomeDepot since it was on sale. I was also planning to put 4 taps like yourself. I had planned to do a coffin design but this has given me some thought and inspiration. My concern was that I wanted to add a collar to allow for another keg and possibly bigger CO2 tank but also wanted a coffin up top. This is a very smart design not having to drill through the top of the freezer.

I'm in NODA country and it is very good.

Good luck, look forward to seeing the finished design. Please post as many pics as you can.

**I meant to ask what is the height of the keezer?

Can anyone give me the equation to use for calculating line lengths for the beer lines?

I'd just go with 10-12 feet of 3/16 line to start. I have 10 footers and they give great pours at normal serving pressures (10-13ish psi). If for some reason you decide that they're too long, you can always just trim them a bit. Line calculators seem like more trouble than they're worth.

Just my two cents. Good luck.

Just a quick update.. This is the [almost] finished product. This pic was before grout and poly... Grout is complete and there are 2 coats of poly. Still need to install the drip tray, actually, still need to buy the drip tray. Anyway...
