If it had 8 more taps that you didn't have to open and cost less than $100 I'd be interested.

Very neat though.

I think the flow meters are a problem for the knocking the CO2 out. That's a lot of surface area and interference.

My thoughts as well. Those flow meters can't be doing good things.

If drinking beer got boring to the point I wanted to spend the money and time to build that I would just start doing meth.

it's a good idea, if you can get the foam under control, i would add in some features to keep track of how much beer is left in each keg and who is drinking how much beer.

Very cool, but a huge waste of money! You still have to pull the handle so it's really not pouring your beer.
