  • Posted in thread: Help cooling my custom kegerator tower on 03-29-2016 at 10:16 PM
    Im do not use fans in any of the keezers I have built. I rely on passive cooling to keep the
    liquid lines cool. But in your case I do recommend fans because of the size of your collar.
    Even though the...

    DJOCONNELL: Why not five feet? Simple it pours better. I have tried different lengths of
    tubing, different diameters, restricters and dip tube inserts. Basically 10' of 3/16" tubing is
    the simplest wa...

    The first pic is the hose barb that connects to a sanke coupler. You can cut that off and
    connect it to the ball lock fitting with a clamp. However I would replace liquid line with 10'
    of 3/16" ID tub...

    I have never used fans so I can't say for sure but others have used them with good results. The
    copper goes all the way up to the nipple at the shank. The cold air is not circulated up into
    the coffin...

    Passive cooling is using .copper pipe to encase the beer line to keep it cold. The copper
    extends into the keezer a bit and the cool temp rises up the pipe. Take a look at my "second
    keezer for Lil br...

    JJ, the wooden tower on top of the keezer is called a Coffin. I did not seal the wood inside
    the coffin on the several I have built but then again I went the passive cooling route. The
    insulation that...

    Welcome, once bitten by the home brewing bug you will enter the never-ending quest for
    knowledge and bigger, better equipment. You will soon grow tired of bottling and want to switch
    to kegs :mug:Take...

    After initially adding CO2 to the keg pull the release valve a couple of times adding more CO2
    to the keg each time to help remove the O2.

    Carbing a keg uses less priming sugar than for bottles. The amount of sugar depends on the
    style of beer. There are plenty of charts to help with this but 1/3 cup of sugar is a good
    starting point. Ho...

    If your not worried about the time it takes to carb your beer just prime the keg with corn
    sugar and keep it warm for a week.When Im in a hurry and need to force carb the kegs I always
    connect the CO2...

Hello,
I saw your post on the wood tap handles you've created. Are you selling these? If so, I'd be very interested in buying one. They are beautiful! and I am looking for a wedding gift for my sister and think one of these would be perfect! Please let me know!

Thanks!
