If you must have a chest style, then that's fine. Otherwise it seems like more effort and money since you have to have a temp controller.

You can fit 8+ kegs in a fridge if you build a mount. Some freezerless ones can fit 10+. I got a used side by side for free that fit 8 kegs.

You can find a used fridge for cheap on craigslist.

Weigh the hops wet. Then while drying you can weigh them again and see how much moisture was removed. Should be about 1/4 the weight when dry I think.

You will need flow back prevention valves on the lines or any change in pressure from one keg to any other will cause you to mix beers. Interesting project.

We get swarms of moth caterpillars every spring and they chew plants to pieces. We just use dish soap on them and it seems to do the trick.

THIS. We put one in our mobile kegerator and it saves a lot of cooling.

We put truck bed liner in the bottom of our cooler. It's waterproof and tough as nails. Plus the texture means less slipping.
