Well it took me a min. but I get what your saying here. By gluing a piece of sand paper to another 3" piece of PVC, you could sand the notches in the base piece to the exact same diameter as the Tee top. Would be alot of sanding, but yes it would work well.

bought 6' of 4" PVC today, I'm going to try to do a 5 faucet, and hook one into either water or something else..

Just thought of this.. will I run into problems finding a toilet ring @ 4 inches?

Any ideas how i can affix this to the Kegerator if there are no 4" toilet rings?

I am assuming he has his temperature probe suspended in there to attain more accurate temperature control of the liquid in the space as opposed to the air temp. I could be wrong though...

Would like a wider one just like it, but again $$$
$21.90 for a 19" stainless drip tray at Williams Brewing, just ordered one yesterday.

You sir are correct! Probe in the vile goes out to my Ranco temp controller.

Cool tower. Did you use krylon fusion paint or just regular spray?

That's a great use for a yeast vial, though. I'll be doing the same in my kegerator now.
