I'm working on the new kegger and have to decide if I stick with four taps or go to six or maybe just four now but allow space for two more. I'd like to add a stout tap at some point. I'm doing things a bit differently, the taps will be on the side rather than the front. That way I don't have to worry about hitting the taps when I'm swapping cornies.



[I know, you're wondering why I'm concerned when this is just a 5 cu ft freezer. Magic! More later.]

Holy smokes, a double wall collar. That's some next level sheeeet. Are you making it a double decker or something. If you can fit 6 kegs, go with 6 faucets. Why not.

Ahh you must be like me. You need an enabler to tell you to go for six, even though you know very well that you want six all on your own. I'm the same way, don't worry. I find that it helps me justify things to ask a friend who knows darn well the answer I want to hear. Of course six!

If you can only fit six (and I'm waiting to see the magic), then that's the way to go. But a 23 cu ft freezer with maybe 10 or 12 taps would look pretty good, too
