Here's my upright keezer. It has kind of evolved over time but here is a brief run down of what I have done so far: I removed the wire mesh shelves, added the Love temp controller, added my own top shelf (much sturdier than original), added a cable track thing just because I had one and it keeps the wires from knocking over stuff on the shelf, and I drilled a hole in the bottom for the CO2 line which is 3/8 OD PE tubing (I really like push-to-connect fittings if you can't tell). I made the 4-port CO2 manifold from a block of aluminum (2 ports are plugged for now - the keezer easily holds 4 cornies). My beer lines are 1/4 OD (.177 ID) PE tubing. I cut the barbs off two picnic taps and then drilled and tapped them for 1/8 NPT fittings. The fittings hold the taps firmly in place on the mounting bracket, although I did add a small ss screw to keep them from rotating. The "rigid-mounted" picnic taps work really well for now until I'm ready to spend some more $$$ on faucets & shanks.
Hi, here is our just finished keezer build. Our goal was to as taps to the bar and have it look clean so we went for a window in the wall style. When pushed up to the wall it looks built in practically so we are quite pleased!
(apologies if the pics are huge. I am sending this from the android app so not sure if it scales them. I will resize when I get to a pc.)
Looking for a little help too. The bottom holds right at the set temp (32) but the higher in the freezer the high the temp. I have a control unit that allows to change it into a fridge. I have lined the wood with a blue foam but that does not seem to be helping to much. Will my beer freeze on the bottom if the bottom is around 25 and the top of the chest is around 35 degrees? And where should I keep the tanks if the temp is really low? http://s756.photobucket.com/albums/x...t=IMG_3267.jpg http://s756.photobucket.com/albums/x...3DIMG_3268.jpg
