Hey, I love this. Except the part that logs how much each person drinks!

Thanks! This worked well - it was hell getting them off of the hard drive backing plates though.

This is my second kegerator, the first was a fridge style with tower. That one is now the fermentation fridge, this one used to be the fermentation chest; they've just switched roles. Now, I can have 2 beers on tap still, possibly a third in the future for a stout faucet/nitro setup, and have space for a lager or two that I can forget about.
This was definitely a challenge. My stepdad did the work, since he's a woodworker. I'm sure he made it more complicated than needed, but it turned out awesome.

I have a PC fan and an Eva Dry and still have condensation. I just have to clean it up every few months when I change out my kegs.

Then your not recharging(drying) your Eva-Dry unit often enough or it's to small.

Every time you open the lid you let humidity in. I open mine only to swap kegs, or recharge the eva-dry and have yet to see frost or condensation inside my freezer in the slightest. My tank and regulators are outside though, so I can make adjustments without going inside.

I know a lot of you all have amazing DIY kegerators. I got the kegerator from friend for a steal and upgraded the tower to a two tap tower it took me about 4 months a last night drilled it out to a 3 tap tower using a drill press. Hole was a little oblong but once it's together none the wiser. I know I squeezed the lager tap in there just to see if it would fit but I do have black ones to use. Also made that chalk board tap with inspiration from the ones you can buy
