I have already put plenty of money into my Keezer project and I still don't even have two of the three Perlick taps I need....

I have seen drip trays for $50-$75 and this is over budget I feel for this....
I have seen Stainless steal mud trays for as little as $12, But I was hoping to find something a little more professional looking but not quite to the tune of $50.
Does anyone know of a good place to find a 12 inch stainless steel drip tray? Or something that looks at least better than the 12 inch mud trays?

Go to Barproducts.com and search drip tray. They have a SS one that is 19" long for under $20...I have it and it is great...no leaks at all

For the price...you could even cut it and bend it so you will have a 12" one

It says very heavy and I'm planning to attach it with magnets, will that work or is it too heavy for that?

I don't want to modify a 19 inch drip tray, I want to just find a 12 inch

It is pretty heavy but that's exactly what I did. Mine is 24" because I spaced my taps too far apart. I have two heavy duty brackets attached with neodymium magnets for the tray to sit on and it holds a full pint without issue. I haven't tested it any more than that, but it seems strong.

I used a piece of copper gutter that came off my folks' house. Soldered on a 1/2" drain copper pipe for a drain and good to go.

What kind of magnets did you use?
