I finally finished mine and here it is! Key features are:
  • It has four taps, all Perlicks.
  • It has a CO2 regulator for each line.
  • The taps are enclosed in a cabinet.
  • The inside of the door panels are chalk boards.
  • The lid has lift-assist gas springs for easy opening.
  • It has a Love Controls temp control unit.
  • Beer comes out of it.

Here's a link to my thread about it, and here are a couple pics.

I'm looking at doing something similar... the taps through the side that is... but I've heard the issue with that is possibly hitting a coolant line running through the side. Was there anything you did to avoid this?

Here's mine, i'm still fairly new in the quest to become handy so I wanted to keep my first keezer nice n' simple. 4 taps coming through 2 towers, with room for 2 kegs of lagering or carbonating beer, painted with good ol' chalkboard paint. Currently it is decorated for the 4th of July party we had last Sunday, it's so nice to have beer on tap. Thanks to everyone on here for the great ideas, this thread was the only resource I even had to use.







And the inside....

What size model chest freezer is this? So this fits 6 ball lock kegs on the floor? Looks great! When is the next party?

physast - I don't know what that freezer is, I got it for free from my boss after we got a new reach-in freezer in our kitchen, I just got kind of lucky with the size. It not only fits 6 kegs, but they fit so perfectly it's like this freezer was made just to be converted. I do know it's a kenmore, and its pretty damn old.
