Saw one of these months ago on Youtube when I got into brewing, then saw the thread here for Keezer builds in this DYI section while Googling for keezers. I've been wanting to do one ever since!
So, here we go:
Freezer (7cuft) off CL for $100
Of course, I had to test it with my kegs & Co2 setup...
misc white pine, dark walnut stain, brown panel nails, Elmers wood glue
got it all framed up & stained...
going to trim out the top there so the 2x4 ends aren't seen... fits like a glove!
Working on the lid & coffin top over the next few days. I removed the freezer lid & made one out of 2x4's on edge with 1" thick foam rubber weather stripping surround to seal the lid, 1/2" plywood atop that 2x4 frame & will reattach it to the freezer using the hinges. I'll be adding 1/4" cement board to tile the top with something, as well as a small backsplash area like everyone else pretty much. Maybe will add some rope lighting under the lid edge & under the coffin behind the faucet area.
I Just ordered:
2-Perlic 525ss faucets, 3 - 4" ss shanks, 3 - 90* elbows as well as another Co2 regulator for the 25/75 beer gas bottle (the air place near me does beer gas mix in Co2 tanks so Co2 regulators are used) all from Ritebrew.
Just scored this on e-bay for $50
I got that blue 20# Co2 tank on CL for $20, kegs, tubing, regulator all from Keggle Brewing in the Vendor list. Just need a 5# beer gas mix bottle tile & misc trim once the lid goes on and it is pour away!
I was originally going to do a 2x10 collar, 4 kegs (3 regular & 1 stout w/beer gas mix) with the 20# Co2 & a 5# beer gas mix on the step inside, and taps out of the front but the room this is going in it would be a tight fit & I can see people bumping into the faucets. I changed it to 3 kegs & the 20# tank on the floor & will put the 5# beer gas in a hole I'll make in the basket so it sits on the step.
more pics to come once the lid is on!
