I've been brewing with extract for the past two years and I think I'm ready to move to all

Posted in thread: Help needed for Keezer - and my 16 month old son... on 11-23-2011 at 04:34 PM
Long story short, I built a budget-build 20 cu ft Keezer using an old Admiral chest freezer

about 20 psi, not ...

Kegs are in the fridge.Dual Guage Regulator appears to be in good working shape. It's only 4
