Very Nice! What size is that freezer and how far apart are the taps? Got a pic of the inside?

Holy Schneikies, are you quitting your job to keep that thing full of beer?

Thanks 2Beer. Not bad for a $40 Craigslist find?!?!?

It's an 18 cubic foot. It could fit 13 ball locks if you built a taller collar. My collar was made from a 1x6. I keep 2 on the hump "on deck" and they fit fine without the disconnects. Nice for letting some carboys cold crash too.

The taps are 4 5/8ths apart on center. And there's plenty of room for any type of tap handle.

I have some pictures of the inside on page 216 of this thread. I hope that helps as I do not have any current picks of the interior. But you can see it's size from the cutouts.

Hhahhhhaaa! Well Joety it is something I'm seriously considering, but I keep a pretty strong pipeline going and I usually do 5 different 5 gallon all grain batches on every brew day which is at least once per month. I've actually done 60 gallons in one day... 6 all grain 10 gallon batches.... Long day.

I still hate when I pull that handle and the keg blows it's last pint.

It's an all day deal. I get all my water ready the night before. I'll set my alarm for early, like 5am early, go to the stove and start heating my water, go back to bed for a little. Then lots of heavy lifting. I'll have one mashing while one is boiling and another chilling to pitching temps. So I just keep leapfrogging them the whole day. I have a 15 gallon brew pot, a 10 gallon tun, and a 9 gallon turkey fryer that I use for heating water along with pretty much every other pot I can fit on my stove. Best part is I only have to clean up once.

Its nothing special but its mine. I am going to be adding 3-4 more taps in the next month or so. I was able to adjust the freezer temp using the coarse adjustment so i did not have to buy a temperature controller.

I'm glad somebody asked. I feel like a dumbass spending 8 hours to do one ten gallon batch.
