I have been trying different distances from the front of the keezer to the front of the taps. I can't bring myself to cut the holes because i'm worried it will be too far or too short a reach later... Bit OCD i guess.

What is a good reach from front wall to tap handle?

I don't even understand the plight. If it's too far forward, you just don't have to stand as close to the counter when you're filling.

32 1/4mm, that should be about as good as you can get...

The center of my tower is 17" from the front and 12" to the end of the tap. I haven't noticed any issues reaching the tap

Stand in front of your keezer, reach your hand out to where a comfortable reach would be for a tap handle with a glass in your hand as if you were actually filling it. Go from there.

Wow! I'm not sure I like that distance. Looks a little too far back.

I hope you're not too short.
