That sounds like a great option. If you don't like it down the road you can change it with very little initial investment loss. Throw up some pics when u get it going.

That's my thinking. I'll only really have the cost of the tower ($400-$600) into it plus the loss of the dishwasher, which is rarely used (there's another one upstairs). Of course, I'll have to spring for the 3 gallon corny kegs (which don't look cheap) and the hardware to get the C02 working on three kegs...but those are costs I'll have no matter how I set up a tap system. Main downside, in my mind, is 3 gallon rather than 5. But I go RVing a lot so it might be nice to have some brew still in the bottles.

Well, for that matter, u could always switch to brewing 3 gallon batches too, if you decide to skip the bottling on a batch. The 3 gallon kegs are expensive. I would like to add one to my list, but for the money I always find something I want more. I've got a bar build going on as well, but I'm still about 6 months out from starting. I'll put up a pick when it gets going.

Good deal.
