The 13th tap was somewhat a mistake. Got a little crazy with the hole-saw & drilled one too many. It has led to homemade root beer, though, so not all bad.

Started with a 26 cu ft freezer off CL. Lots of mistakes. Lots of learning. Wish I could've documented the build like so many do here, but I didn't have the means until recently.

All-in-all, something I am proud of.

Love your use of White labs Vials (at least that's what those handles looked like to me).

I don't know what I'd do with 13 taps.. probably nothing at all good would come from it!

Yes, White Labs vials with some grains in them.

Brewing 3.5g batches mainly now, so easier to fill/rotate.

Nice build. Course the question is......do they all have beer flowing through them?

That's a thing of beauty!

It also screams "Ain't no kiddies livin' here right now!"

Cheers!

Great work, but there's no way I could ever fill that many kegs, even with scaled down recipes. 4 different serving kegs is the most I've ever filled.

I gotta ask - how'd you attach the WL vials as tap handles? I've seen that before and thought that was a neat idea, but I've never seen how it was done.

Nice work, BTW. Good looking keezer you built there.

Looks like he drilled holes in the vial caps and nutted them to the threaded tap posts...

Cheers!
