What did you use for the shelf supports?

Lovey build.

Jon, did you use the existing thermostat or override it with a temperature controller? I didn't see anything in your pics.

I placed a jumper on the built-in thermostat to make it run continuously and then have it plugged into an outlet controlled by my BCS. There are obvious benefits to an external temp controller, but the one downside is that the inside light only works if the external controller is currently chilling. Not a biggie, but I've thought about wiring the light on it's own circuit.

What a great build, I need to come over for a pour (I live in Huntington Beach too!). We can do a beer swap!

How do you clean the lines with all of them bundled so nicely?
Great job by the way!

When I do brew days, it's usually an open invite for others to attend. You might want to check out Brewcommune.com - the club I'm in. What end of town you at?

I periodically mix up BLC and put it in a keg to run through the lines for cleaning.

You're very close. I'm just off Bolsa Chica. Brewing this Sunday from 9:00 AM until ???? (doing two 10g batches). PM me if you're interested in coming by. Yeah, I know it's Easter, but I didn't know that when I scheduled the brew day.

Awesome work here! I just picked up a Kenmore freezer on CL for $100 and am going to build a new keezer inspired by yours. I have a few questions if you dont mind:

I can't see the back of this shelf so I am assuming that this shelf is essentially a 2 legged table where the two legs are what is visible in the front and the back it supported by the hump in the back?

What kind of beverage line did you use. I currently have accuflex barrier line in my existing keezer and I think it would be too stiff for a project like this.

Did you ever modify your wiring to solve the light issue? Did you bypass the defrost heater? I take it the recirculation fan still works?
