Awesome... sounds good to me. I think I may be implementing this by wiring my Ranco directly to a power strip. I'll then just plug the freezer and computer fan into the power strip to ensure that the fan and compressor only come on when the controller tells them to. Thanks for the quick reply! You've been an inspiration to many of us!

Of all the home built and styles of keezers jester369 yours was the only one the wifey would allow in the family room. Congrats on your build plus the lighting. I had a couple freebie units from a rusty POS that died to a bright fire truck red without wheels needing no lighting even in the dark. Flat ugly eyesore. Yours got 100% approved by the War Department. Thanks for all your postings. I have a closed in laundry room wall that the keezer will fit against plus thinking this area also will hold the 150 cu/ft Nitrogen bottle with my collection of 20# C02 bottles until a larger C02 bottle is needed. In storage a 214 cu/ft O2 plus a 240 cu/ft Helium bottle that can I can convert the valves to Co2 if need be. I hate refilling small bottles the cost savings alone plus these are all free owner owned bottles with papers.
Just messing around I build your unit out of cardboard spray painted brown and stuck it in the family room, used X-mas rope lighting as a simulated keezer, sure looked great, got a gold star by the wifey.

Your keezer is truly inspirational. I am working on plans for one of my own as well as figuring out how to pay for it.

After 4 pints off the cardboard keezer the wifey will give me a cash in advance for a future build. Just need it in writing.

Curious as to how the unit is holding up in regard to heat dissipation and cooling of the irish coffin.

Do the fans and duct work function well?

Jester did you you use standard cement for the tile or did you use something like liquid nails for tile? I am working on a similar build, and am trying to figue out how to get this step done.

Hey there atomicpunk78, Grafter,

So far, it has been holding up very well. I never got around to cooling the tower, and it really doesn't seem to need it. The amount of beer in the line from the freezer to the tap is so small that unless you are drawing an ounce or so for a sample, it's fine.

The tile is actually just placed in, not adhered in any way. That way, if I ever feel like changing the color, or if one of the tiles breaks, I can unscrew and remove the coffin, and slide in new ones. It takes some patience to get the clearances just right so that there aren't gaps, but it looks nice. A little sealant in the seams is a good idea for the inevitable spills, however.
