My turn to build a Keezer! I know, I know... another Keezer... I figure if you are sick of looking at them... then you wouldn't be clicking on this thread.
If you can't tell or don't know of him, I got my inspiration from Jester. I know it looks pretty much like a rip off but if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
His build can be found here
So... let's get started. I bought a Magic Chef 7.2 chest freezer off Craigslist for 75 bucks. They don't sell them anymore at Home Depot, but they have the best footprint for the buck in my opinion.
I modeled it in a CAD program called Inventor by Autodesk.
The doors open to the control panel! This is where I mount my regulators and Love Temperature Controller.
The back panel is "hidden" here so you can see inside to the PVC cooling tower...
This is what I've built so far...
I am really bad at remembering to take pictures so this is the only picture I've taken along the way... sorry.
I will build a set of casters and build wood around the freezer itself to match the top (Even though it is not in the 3D model). I also plan on putting a circulation fan that circulates air in the freezer and also draws air into the insulated PVC tower to cool the beer lines simultaneously. I can't decide what color to stain the wood... I'm thinking a dark red stain to go with the black. Any suggestions?
Thanks to ALL who have posted their ideas, methods, suggestions on this site. I wouldn't have gotten anywhere without all your help!
