This is it, Nothing special, but it's mine, and it allows me to do 10 gallon batches. I've gotten more kegs so I'm up to 8 now, the perfect number for a 4 tap keezer. I also got a hold of a 1/2 full practically free 20# co2 tank. All I need for that is a regulator and I'm in business. I want to get one of the dual gauge ones that I can do two pressures on so I can have a tap of soda water for my wife. I figure with xmas coming I need to focus on building my pipeline so that I can save up for the keezer and still have beer to drink after the new year.

Hey Hoppo, once again, great job on this! Quick question if you don't mind -- what is the vertical distance from the tile to the center of the shanks? I'm sketching out my build right now and I'm not sure how high I need to set the taps. Any help you can give would be much appreciated! Keep up the good work!

I don't recall off of the top of my head, but am heading home to work on my grain mill today, as I worked 14 hrs. yesterday and plan on being out of the office by 1:00 today. As soon as I get home, I'll take some measurements and let you know. I wanted plenty of height, so that I could use the full array of beer glasses from standard pint glasses and snifters to tulip to tall pilsner glasses. I'll let you know in about 6 hrs.

14" from the top of the tile surface to the centerpoint of the drilled holes for the shanks. With the drip tray and downward slope of the perlick taps, it still allows for 11" of clearance, so even a tall pilsner glass isn't an issue.

Thank you! This is what I had guessed for my design, but it's great to get confirmation. I appreciate the quick response!
