Ah! Gotcha!

You still have a similar airflow issue with that set-up too, but probably not as bad.

I got the six tap tower on ebay for a steal. Originally was going to build a collar, until I found it. Definitely easier and I think it's pretty cool too. The kegerator will hold 9 kegs and quite a few bottles. The taps were a stolen idea from a trip to the White Labs tasting room.

Default 2 fridges, 6 taps

Just put the finishing touches on the 4 tap fridge conversion. Looks good paired with the two tap kegerator.

That lonely stout handle looks terrible in comparison to your custom handles you should fix that. Overall your setup looks amazing!

Use an eight ball for a tap handle. That would look cool.

Can't really open your freezer door with those tall tap handles.

I have a small L bracket mounted to the top of the opening edge of my fridge door, so when you open the freezer the fridge opens as well. This alleviates the worry of hitting my tap handles and spilling beer.

Thanks to everyone for their help!
Probably my favorite keezer on this forum. Great style. If I didn't have an actual bar and needed to build a keezer I'd copy this in a heartbeat.

Brilliant! My kegerator is of the same style upright fridge and I have always been stuck with the short black tap handles. I've always debated about just bolting both doors together with a bracket, but this is a much better idea. I will be copying this for sure.
