That's awesome. You've got a great shop there.

what about that spray in expanding insulation? just a thought but are you going to try and sandwich more metal on the inside with the insulation in between or leave it open? Looks pro so far- keep up the good work!

The collar is 1" thick and has pink polystyrene insulation stuffed throughout. I lined the interior with 6064 T6 aluminum and fastened the manifold to that. It has a Johnson digital controller and is currently chillin down.

That's cool. I was thinking of how you were going to make the freezer match the steel, but you went the other way.

How high is the upper lip of your metal collar off the ground? I'm in the planning process for my keezer and I'm trying to determine how high is too high... I'm going to have my collar attached to the freezer like you did and am concerned that I might have trouble hoisting full kegs up and over. I guess I could always use the step stool or something as well...

43 1/2" with the wheels I added, I didn't have any trouble hoisting the cornys in there, but I'm 6'1". It will be interesting trying to clean it though.
