I'm replicating this exact keezer starting tomorrow using the same freezer and temp controller. Hopefully it comes out as good as the one in BYO. I'll post pics later

Thank you, and yes it is the kegerator featured in the March-April issue of BYO. I wrote that article around Thanksgiving 2010. We can include more details here in this forum than would fit into the magazine article.

My first publication, I am stoked!

Would it fit four ball lock cornies and a 5lb CO2 tank inside?

Very tightly, with the CO2 on the hump, I believe.

Mine with 3 cornies and 20# tank:

What's the lengths of those beer shanks? I've been searching for 3 inch stainless shanks or one piece nipple shanks and I cannot find anyone that has them in 3/16" bore. My beverage line is 3/16", so I thought that I need 3/16" bore. I see a lot that are 1/4" bore.
