Ha, thanks! I read a lot about that, so I never let him get more than a few drops. Good thing I have perlick flow controls!

As an update, the uncooled lines pour just as well as the cooled lines. Guess I have room for another keg!

One day I would love to have something like this but I have a long way to go. Thank you for the inspiration though!

I completely forgot about this thread. A buddy of mine is getting ready to do something very similar from his garage to his kitchen. Are you still happy with the way this turned out, and did you ever get around to making that video? I would be interested to see it. Again, love the idea

I don't think I remembered to shoot the video. I am still running the lines uncooled, just an insulated trunk line. I think I will eventually move to a glycol chiller if/when I move to conicals, but for now I just use it as is. Works great and people love the beer. This is only about 10 feet of beer line run. Garage to kitchen might be another issue depending on distance.

New picture if taps and new tap handle (Xmas present).

Should only be <5 feet of line on his build as the taps will be right on the other side of the wall from the keezer so I have high hopes for it. Again, yours looks excellent!
