Yeah, that's what I was talking about exactly. Okay, well I think I'm going to go ahead and use a coldplate to build my box.

Another question.... do chill plates have copper tubing in cast aluminum, or is it aluminum all the way through?

All of them that I have seen are cast alum blocks with 1/4 ID stainless tubing inside.

I was just poking around and found an ebay item pretty much exactly what I got... cold plate

homebrewbeliever, how did this work out for you? I am thinking of doing the same thing for my wedding.

The kegs would start cold but warm up over a few hours as they are served. I am looking at a 7 pass cold plate and doing a 4 tap jockey box. 3 of the taps would be doubled up, and 1 of them single.

How did the beer at your wedding go with the cold plate box?
