Hello all -
I've just begun the joys of home brewing (one batch kegged, another in the fermenter). I have a keezer setup in my basement, but i am planning on putting 3 taps in my dining room (directly above the keezer).
I have approx 8-10 feet i need to run lines. Planning to go through the lid of the freezer and up through the floor, into my bartop/side table. looking for advice and tips from anyone who may have done something similar.
i plan to run the 3 lines together (taped or ziptied every few feet, in a bundle) and run up through polyethylene pipe insulation. i have read about the glycol cooling method, but i dont think i want to get into that. i can run the pipe insulation the entire way to within approx 1 foot of the taps.
i'd greatly appreciate any insight and answers to the following questions:
1. am i going to have way overcarbed beer in order to have enough pressure to push the beer 8-10ft vertically?
2. would it be better to have the insulation snug around the 3 beverage lines, or better to have some additional airspace for cold air to circulate.
3. what else am i missing/not considering that could become an issue.
thanks so much for any help!!
