So I have finally begun my keezer project. After having 2 batches sitting ready to be kegged for 2 months I actually went out and bought a 4 facuet keezer kit. Well, I have the best wife ever, she actually paid for the kegging hardware and 4 kegs. The rest was on me. Here is my progress after just a weekends worth of work.
This is the freezer with the kegs in it just for sizing purposes. It is and Avanti 7.1 cu. ft. I believe it is discontinued. I picked it up on Craigslist for $150.
I started off the build by creating a base for the freezer out of 2x6s. I will add casters later, but didn't want to try to work on building out the frame with the base rolling all over the place.
Here is a picture of the base with the frame attached.
I slipped the freezer right into the frame and secured it in the back with a couple of brackets.
I added 2" casters to the dolly. I used swivel casters in the front and rigid in the rear. I must say it rolls very smoothly and turns easily.
I attached the lid with 4 3/8" T-nuts. I used a srap piece of plywood on the inside so the bolts wouldn't pull through. The piece i have attached for the lid is just a base that will be the framework that I actually attach the finish laminant and trim work too.
And this is where we stand now.
I'll keep posting pics as I work on it. Next it is on to build the actual tap box and start putting on the outside of the base.
