So I am in the process of planning my next keezer. I have some ideas about using something interesting for my tower. My family owns a propane company. I think it might be funny to use a propane tank.

Has anyone made a tower out of something interesting? Let's see some pictures.

He just had 2 taps on the toilet scrubber, I seem to recall your last keezer had something like 7 or 8 taps on it....

This keezer is going to be smaller. I couldn't brew fast enough to keep that monster full. So my new keezer is only going to have 3 taps.

Gotta be super careful cutting propane tanks. A lot of shops will opt not to do that work.

I'd probably go the fill with water route myself... The fire pit looks nice

one of the companies that we do a lot of work with tried to fill it with water and cut it with a torch. it still flashed. i cut it with a sawzall(sp?) and let the co2 bleed into it. it took forever, but i didnt blow up.
