I am working on my keezer build, I want to run the lines out of the top of the freezer.
Have any of you run it this way?
I bought some pipe insulation and I was thinking about drilling a hole that I could run a piece of pvc out of the lid.

I'd guess nearly all of us keezer owners have lines through our keezer lids...

Cheers!

How far are you wanting to run the lines outside of of the keezer?

The general consensus seems to be having ten feet of hose. From the top of the freezer to tower is only about 2 feet. The rest of the hose will be coiled inside the freezer.

If it just up in to a tower you should be okay with what ever. A fan blowing air up in to the tower with a little insulation in there. You can also run your lines inside of copper pipe with pipe insulation around the outside. The copper will hang down in to the keezer and keep them cold.
