I've been working on a garage/guestroom/awesome room. I'm now up to the point of working on mechanical and would like some help planning a serving station. I have a good sized closet that I will put my chest freezer in, I currently own a 7cu holiday chest freezer that I would like to use. A couple of things I would like help with, and have been thinking about.
1.When I am not serving from the freezer do I need to build a collar, is the extra height still needed for internal fittings?
2.What would be the best way to set this up to function for both sodas and beer(indvidual regulators, hose length, etc)?
3. What would I do after each use to help clean the lines, do I have a keg with santizer wash to run through, etc?
4. Any other general pointers or cool features to plan into this.
5. Does the CO2/gas tank need to be in the keezer?
A few things I am already thinking of(which if they aren't the best idea please shoot some new ideas).
I am going to put conduit lines through the wall for my tubing. That way I can pull the lines out for replacement or cleaning purposes.
At the end of each side of the conduit I would like to have the lines terminate into a type of a wall plate with connections. So that I can quickly connect the keezer to the closet wall plate, and the taps to the cabinet wall plate. I think I'd like three standard taps and one nitro tap. I haven't decided if I'd like the taps in the counter top or in the wall. Any benefit with either way beyond a cosmetic decision.
I'm sure I'll be back with other questions. I'll include many pics along the way.
