That looks like mine when I bought it. I replaced the tower with a three tap. I can fit two 5 gallon kegs and a three gallon keg on the compressor hump. I had to make a little two legged stand to balance the keg on the hump.

The CO2 fits in a little stand on the back.

nothing fancy, just a small keezer build with 2 towers, 2 cornys and a temp controller:

I added a stout tap to my keezer last night. I still have to get the beer gas and the lines hooked up. Of course now I need to brew something for that tap too...it's a never ending cycle

I did a bit of basement remodeling as well. This keezer build has turned into a full on basement remodel since I have to have a nice area to enjoy the fruits of my labors. I installed chair rail, painted and added a drop ceiling.

Been meaning to do a complete post with lots of DIY build pics, but I'll add it to this thread until then.

This was my 'proof of principle' to get the hang of building a keezer and kegging beer. I went small so I could learn some lessons before building a large one in the future.

I used an Igloo 5.2cf freezer with 'refrigerate' mode. It's been holding around 40 degrees, which is just fine for me until I get fancier with more dialed in temp control. Plus, at $160 and no external temp controller needed, I figured I would give it a shot.

I can fit two 5-gallons on the floor and a 3-gallon on the hump. I could have gone with a taller collar to fit another 5-gallon on the hump, but this is enough for now. I covered the entire thing with chalk spraypaint, so I can write all over it. My driptrap is mounted to a piece of baseboard molding that I glued to the keezer. I can easily remove the tray for cleaning. The basket provides a great spot for slightly chilled glasses.

Can't wait for my DIPA to be ready and flowing from the second faucet in about two weeks.

I still have to add a trip try, cap catcher, and chalkboard paint, but here she is!



and first pour. NB Smashing Pumpkin Ale, it was delicious and gone about 2 weeks later.

Very nice Sixmile! I love the stained wood! I'd like to hear how you worked that wood top into your build.
