Hi- a few weeks ago I bought a used 2 tap jockey box. I'm getting it ready for a party next week. I was repaving the Sanke connections to accommodate Corny kegs and was proceeding to flush t lines with BLC.

I noticed the extra Ports on the plate chiller....this looks like a 3 beer plate chiller... Here's a picture below.

I'm not schooled up on plate chillers. Two questions:
1. Is this a three beverage plate chiller?
2. Do I need to plug these extra ports to keep then in good shape should I decide to hook up a third tap to the box? It seems like letting ice water hang around in there is a bad idea...

Thanks for your thoughts.

I would plug it up, or loop a line from one side to the other would solve the issue too.
