Not a problem. I'll take some better pics with my canon once I get everything where I want it to be

My Jolly pumpkin tap handle came yesterday (was a pain to track one down) and my unibroue handle comes Friday! WOOT!

I actually didn't have a ton of problems when I simply ran lines prior ro building the trunk lines, since they are so short. I'll be able to do a head to head comparison tonight when I run the two addition lines because they will be uninsulated until I rebuild my trunk line to include them.
There's nothing I don't like about this. Curious to hear how much of a difference there's going to be.
Awesome work

I'll shoot a little video of them side by side once I get the lines full and it has a chance to come to room temperature.

That is a great idea. So you have a cool water line that helps cool the lines? Pardon my ignorance here, I kind of didn't get it.

This gives me an idea for an eventual tap system.

Love the setup. Can't wait until I live in a house with a basement so I can do what you have done. It is so clean and well executed.

By the way, I noticed a few people asking about the lack of drip tray. I personally don't like the look of a drip tray and have been fine without one...I can't remember the model number for this exact unit but it has been very effective at eliminating spilt brew.

Nice drip tray! Careful with super hoppy beer as hops can cause dogs to lose control of their body temp and die.
