I wrapped the copper in pipe insulation as this will be under the counter on my back bar with the tower mounted to counter.
I brought it in from the garage and started getting my bar ready for the tower. A little measuring... actually, quite a bit of measuring, re-measuring and so on. I cut the hole for the tower.
I secured the tower to the counter using screws and larger washers underneath to snug it up.
And... here is the final product!
.... complete with Perlick faucets.
I control the temperature with a Ranco ETC (you can see it peeking out from under the cabinet on the 2nd last photo) and it's working quite well keeping the beer at 2 degrees celcius. The tap handles I got from a very good friend who owns a bar. Once of these days, I will serve Boddington's.... probably never the Michelob Ultra though...
Right now I'm serving 2 beers from a local Ottawa Craft Brewery called Kichesippi Beer Company
. On the right, 1855
, and on the left, Natural Blonde
Again, many thanks for all the information I've gleaned from these forums. The brew bug has bitten me hard.... I see my own beers coming from these taps before not very long.
