Looks great, I want one. Maybe Santa will bring me one. Great work.

Nice, real nice. Your pictures give me ideas for my build. I like the location of the taps. What is the height of the wooden collar? And, perhaps a bit more about the neat looking temperature gauge. Is that the temperature controller? If so, who sells them.

Sorry to be a bit bothersome, but Wayne at Bargain Fittings put me on to HomeBrewTalk; what a wonderful find.

I definitely couldn't have built this with out all the ideas from HBT.

The collar is 1 x 8 pine and that is an "Ebay aquarium temperature controller". If you don't mind degrees C, for the price it can't be beat. This thread has information of all kinds on it:

Here is mine basically complete, Just have to add some led lighting to it...
Thanks to everyone on here, the inspiration from seeing all of your projects really helped.
I used tin on the sides and back, tiled with glass tile and it has a digital picture frame so you know whats on tap...
Thanks again for all of your creations!

I had a 4 tap setup in an old fridge for the last few years which will be my new fermentation chamber.

Here's my new one, my 3 year old think it looks like a battery. Picked up the freezer of Craigslist for $40, not bad even though it's dented up in the front.

It's not 100% finished yet, but this was what I could afford to set up for the holidays. Iíll go to 11 evenly spaced taps eventually (insert Spinal Tap joke here), but the freezer could fit 13. Iíll add one more 525s and two stout faucets. Just plain black handles until I decide what I want to do. Iíll also install a 360mm pc case fan I have from an old gaming rig to keep the cold air moving about. Then thereís the drip trayÖ still not sure what I want to do about that at all yet. Pretty happy with the overall build especially since I really donít have any handyman type skills. By far the nicest thing in my basement.

Loads of thanks to everyone who shared thereís on this thread. I viewed every single page at least 3 times while deciding on what to do.

Here's mine in what I like to think of Phase 1.



You can see from the markings I had wanted to mount the taps higher, however once I had them marked out and went to mock up the taps I realized the fridge had a large concave dent the ran along the entire width so I ended up moving the taps farther down.

Inside



I plan to add at least 1 more tap, I'd like four but I won't know if I can fit four corny's and the 10lb CO2 tank until I do a mock up.

I still need to

1) Clean & Paint the Fridge in a flat black.
2) Mount a black dry erase board to the top
3) Fabricate a drip tray. My wife is already eyeing my high tech rag drip tray with disdain.
4) fabricate a wood trim for the taps
6) ?????
7) Profit.
