So I have been running my new keezer for about 4 weeks now and on two occasions I have noticed a pool on some clear liquid at the bottom on the freezer. The liquid is not beer, its odorless, and has a slightly sticky/thicker-than-water consistency. It takes about a week and a half for a good little pool to accumulate and it only seems to build up when I let the freezer sit for a while. While I was modifying it and adding kegs the pool didn't seem to accumulate.
Is this my freezer giving out on me? Is there anyway to fix it?

Thanks

Step back from the ledge. It's called "condensation". Mop it out and look for leaks in your keezer seals...

Cheers!

Yea I was thinking that too at first, but the consistency of the liquid is thicker than water. Almost like a light syrup.

I just found the same substance at the bottom of my keezer. I have only been kegging for a few months. I think it starts as condensation but how does it thicken? My keezer seems to be working fine otherwise.

Since you posted almost three years ago have you learned any more about it?

Try some Damp-Rid that can be found in the RV section at Wal-Mart.

Condensation is pure water, so if it seems thick or sticky it must be something else.
