You could drain the keezer by tipping it on its side, which is more of a pain than using the drain.

A mop is too big and unwieldy to fit into the corner with all the kegs in the keezer.

The beer lines to the taps will probably reduce how far you can slide your proposed lid off and may be annoying if they catch on items in the keezer.

True, but the decrease in volume of the liquid is completely negligible compared to the decrease in volume of the gas. Liquids for the most part are "incompressible." The main culprit is the beer...

Thanks guys, but I already replaced all the o-rings.

Also, I would suppose there is beer flavor contamination from beer to beer too, but it is undetectable.

Gotcha. Sorry, for some reason I apparently didn't understand your first post correctly.

The box is going to be in the way of the lid when you open it so my ideas for that are:

5 Tap Tower Lid

I bought a 5 tap beer tower off eBay a while back which didn't come with a lid. I made a pretty decent lid by bending and cutting a sheet of metal made for signs from Home Depot, but it has since...

It could be that you are applying less pressure than the beer is equalized at so it is off gassing and/or the temperature is different than it was equalized at. I had the same issue a while back...
