Ok, I couldn't tell from your original pics/plans that you were putting a lid like that on it. In that case, your solution with the tubing should work fine, assuming positive pressure in the tank or...

That's one downfall of this design, but since we keep our beer in the basement under a blanket or in a closet, I wasn't too worried.

Luckily, I managed to score a dozen of the amber Grolsch...

What do you mean by lumber? I wasn't planning on using any construction-grade lumber (spruce, pine, fir, etc.). As far as I know, hardwood lumber, like the kind I want to use, is just kilned for...

Hopefully by then my brother...
