Cool design. Are you going to use a forced air system for cooling the condenser coils?

Yeah...the word is...I have too many ideas and too little time. It'll get done, but I need to finish the brew hut, brew rig, and some odd jobs before this one gets any more attention.

I know what you mean. I have everything for my brewery planned and drawn up, but no money or time to get it done. It is soooo frustrating! I just need a week off and some stimulus money and I would be set

Pardon my ignorance as I'm just getting to know all the details of a tap system but what is the Argon for? Isn't a Co2 tank and some cornies all you'd need?

My only suggestion after my version of the famous Tap box on top Keezer, Split the lid so the tap box doesn't get lifted with the lid.

I use argon with my stout faucet. It's much the same as nitrogen (in terms of its properties relative to liquid solubility and pressure), and it's readily available since I weld. It's a little more expensive than nitrogen, but I'd rather have argon on hand since it's a "multitasker" (to quote Alton Brown) in my house/garage.

IP - I just might split the lid as you suggest!

After lifting yet another keg into my chest freezer, I've decided I'll never build one again. An upright may be harder to get to "look good," but it's a real PITA lifting kegs in and out of a chest freezer. YMMV.

The last 10g corny I lifted into a freezer by myself will be the last one, next time I'm getting help. Maybe in the future I should rack into the empty keg already in the freezer, so I don't have to lift more than 5g at a time.
