Nearly finished. Got it all the exterior put together. We still need 2 more taps and then we are also need to make our custom taphandles still.

For the interior, we are just waiting on the hardware to arrive so we can get it all hooked up. I've got 2 homebrew kegs waiting to go and will probabl go pick up a commercial one as well.

lid attached


all insulated


sealing in the light switch




all works and the kegs clear everything perfectly.


temp controller mounted


Cleaned up finished








For a couple amatuer woodworkers I think we did pretty decent.

Wow that looks great! I'm doing one myself hopefully soon and I love the wood stain you used. I might have to use a similar design

Black looks so sexy.... I can't wait to get my white Keezer painted black.

I really dig the black it looks super nice much nicer than a white keezer with stained wood collar.

Looks great there, congrats! I see you have 6 taps, is that with two on the hump? What size collar did you have to use? Thanks!

Yea, two on the hump and then the CO2 on the floor. We used 8" wood but for some reason it only measure 7 1/4"

Thanks guys. Definitely happy with the way it turned out. I wanted a nice piece I could be happy with keeping inside and I think we achieved that.

Can't wait to get it all plumbed so the beer can start flowing.

Useless factoid: 7 1/4" is the actual size of nominal size 8" lumber. Measure a 2x4...it's actually 1.5" x 3.5".

"Back in the day", a 2x4 would actually be 2x4 when it was green and roughcut. After drying and planing, you'd be down to 1.5x3.5. Nowadays, even the roughcut and green lumber is smaller than 2x4 due to advances in technology that eliminate waste.
