Bowie Fan,

Digging the stainless "coffin" and the staggered tap arangement is pretty unique, nice work.

Thanks, had to do the staggered taps to fit the puck tap handles in. The coffin is a lockable control cabinet made by Hubbel. At a future date I will be mounting shutoff valves in the box so I can keep the kids out of my beer when the wife and I want to travel, just close the valves and lock the door and the bar is closed! Also, note that there is a piano hinge running the width of the lid, I used a metal cutting blade to cut the lid in half so I can open the front half for keg changes without disturbing the tower. Sealed the raw edges with foil tape and filled the joint with foam weatherstrip to make everything airtight and maintain the integrity of the insulation.

Finally got my Jester inspired one done (only a one year project...)

Front:

Coffin Top Open:


The last one is horrible (iPhone for the win!) but it shows the inside of the door on the coffin top. In there I have the secondary regulator so I can adjust the CO2 without having to move the beast from the wall.

Default Kegerator in Lakeview, Chicago

Built this over Winter Break. Fridge is an old Montgomery Ward model with a nice chrome plate on the front that gave the finished product a little vintage. The tap handles are chair legs you can buy at Home Depot. Sanded them down and put on a couple coats of stain. Currently have 8 kegs running out of a 20 lb CO2 tank.

Finished product:

Custom "Party Tap" conversion:

Friggin' digging seeing Langway there. Ahh...

(Also - nice keezer too! How'd you etch/engrave the coffin/control panel?)

I and the wife were there in sec 104 row E for all that futility. Took my 1 month old son to his first game in Oct 2002 against the Stars(loss) sat in the first row behind the Caps bench and Cassidy spent the entire game making goo goo eyes at my son instead of managing his bench......... can you say Prophecy? We have been collecting a full team stick for each year of my son's life(not all are pictured) we started with that top one which is a game used Kono stick.

The logos on the keezer are offical die cut decals purchased at Modell's for $8 each.

Just another Danby 440 conversion. Nothing special, but it's MINE.

All bits except the fridge, cornies, and Perlicks came from KegConnection who were extremely fantastic, as usual.
