Well I decided to hold off on posting any pictures until I really felt my keezer was done. I scored the chest freezer itself off craigslist back in Dec, for $75. I've measure the internals, and the compressor hump, and it comes out to about 8.5 cu.ft.
Anyway, here's the pics.. w/ some comments. SO glad it's finally done.. it's def. been a work in progress with stuff getting added about every 10 days on average, the last thing being the wire shelf that the kegs sit on.
The first day.. fitting it for kegs. holds 6 no problem w/o a collar
Double hinge design, and some one sided sticky weather stripping from Lowes.. fit perfect.
Close up of 10# tank out side the keezer. The valves are swivel nuts, so they can come off and I can take the tank with me if need be w/o cutting hose. I have a 2' gas hose with a gas QD that is portable to take with me. Both hoses go straight through the collar. I forget the hole size i drilled, but hoses are very snug.
Freezer lid up. The double manifold is for wheat beers for the wife. That reg. is set to just under 20 psi. the 4 space manifold is for my beers, generally pale ales and ipa's but also do reds and ambers, reg. set at ~12 psi.
A look inside with it all plumbed up.
Peeking down in there you see the last addition, the Nexelon wire shelf. This helped tremendously in cooling. The last thing I am going to add is a fan.. The 6th keg is not on the shelf, I'm going to buy a cooling rack (like you cool cookies on) for that one to sit by itself.
Link to shelf, only $35. 14" X 24"
Pic of collar up. Perfect for changing out kegs, cleaning, etc.
The drip tray. The magnets are from lowes, they come in 2 packs. two fo them fit perfect on the L brackets. Drip tray is just sitting, unattached, on top, so easy to take off and clean. I put one full pint on it, it didn't budge.. I didn't test but it can probably hold 3ish pints or so, evenly distributed.
