Yep, there's a 7" collar on there, letting me fit 2 on the hump. If the freezer were about an inch and a half longer, I could get an extra one in:

Totally missed this thread, Ubermick. Looks great! For someone who claims to lack woodworking skills, you did a very fine job. What did you use for the top surface? I like the color contrast with the dark wood. I did the same thing one day with my coffin. Fortunately, I was able to put the lid back down real quick and grab it before it just before it went off the back. Heartbeat went through the roof, so I can only imagine how pi$$ed you were.

In retrospect, I now with Iíd put a collar on mine and two more taps, as there are so many beers I want to brew, but just donít have room.

Cheers Keith. And for what it's worth, the woodworking was a nightmare. The lid took two tries - the other one is currently in the garage awaiting a dump run. Getting everything lined up was next to impossible, and my mitered corners look good from far, but they're far from good.

The collar was definitely a good move. I'm already at capacity, and could use another tap or two.
