I've had to put on a taller collar than I wanted to thanks to the height of the compressor hump in this old freezer I got.
The height of it is 9 inches. Im insulating the inside of the wood with sheets of polystyrene but I need a fan or two in it as well. The freezer is about 7cu and holds 4 kegs and the gas. All gaps are also sealed up with silicone sealer.
The bottom two kegs both sit under the height of the original seal and therefore are surrounded by freezer lines in the walls. The ones that sit on the hump are therefore only about half to three quarters under the lip height.
Also after running it for a while I would of thought the few inches of exposed tap shanks I had would at least be cool but they aren't.
Now... a few questions...
Where to put the temp probe? Too high and I risk it reading the higher temp and freezing beer on the bottom don't I?
And where and how many fans do I put in for circulation?
I have a 12cm pc fan comming as well as some smaller ones. I hope to run them off an old mobile phone charger.
Any tips or a how to from you guys that have done this before?
Much appreciated, I haven't even got to the pour a beer stage yet but looking to do the job right the first time.
Pics are even better
