Default Are you gonna bark all day little doggie... or are you going to build a Keezer?

Hey all,

Been slowly day by day completing my Keezer with much help from people here. It is amazing what you can learn by reading through the FAQs and old threads. Since I'm about 95% completed, exterior just about 100% completed, I thought I would finally post some pics.

To give you an idea, this is what I started with:




This is the final result:




I must show off the counter-top that I made pretty much from scratch:




Inside I have room for at least five cornies + 20lb CO2 Cylinder, possibly one more corney.




I've posted a tonne more step-by-step photos and comments on my Picasa Album.

Let me know what y'all think.

Nice work! do yourself a favor and stick the 20# co2 tank on the outside of the keezer. it'll free up more room.

That is an option down the road, but since I only have two kegs at the moment I think I'm ok for now. Unless you're offering to give me four cornies???
