ok, I dont know if anyone else has ran into this, but a drip tray to go on my kegerator wide enough for 4 taps was over $150 dollars...OUCH....Nothing fancy, just a stainless drip tray.... So I was searching online and found a "speed rail" made of stainless...22inches wide, its made for whisky bottles behind a bar...I ordered it, and am glueing magnets on the back to stick to my fridge for easy cleanup...Anyway, it was only 17 bucks, plus 10 to ship...it wasnt totally "water tight" across the bottom, mostly, but a little silicone will cure that....but for the money it cant be beat...If anyone is interested I can post pictures....

It's too bad you didn't post a question about this, in the Kegging stickies there is a list of links to various kegging products. One of the links is for a stainless drip tray If I remeber it was $14.95 plus shipping. I ordered one a week or so ago and love it. It was just wide enough to work for my 5 taps.

For anyone else reading, here is the link with directions

Stainless Drip Trays
http://www.barproducts.com/index.php
'Bar Supplies', then 'Bar Supplies 2', near end of page-'Stainless Steel Drip Tray'.

This is a direct copy from the kegging sticky.

God luck with you modification. Paul

Yeah, that $15 tray from barproducts was surely a find. kegconnection wanted $40 for the same one, so I held off. Glad I did! Just found that tray yesterday and ordered it.

Did a little searching on "speed rail" and found this source: http://search.instawares.com/speed-rails.0.3.0.htm Lots of sizes, even have black powder-coat.

They also have some inexpensive 8" fine mesh strainers that would make good hop balls.

I did the very same thing. I bought this 40" SS speed rail for $11.95. It has a 9 inch wide pocket and is ~6 inches deep. I also had to use silicone along the insde as it is only tack welded. No problem really.

I line the bottom with paper towels to keep cleanup easy peezy.



I am waiting for the part to arrive to expand from the 4 faucets shown to the 6 that have always been planned on (note 6 label frames and only 4 faucets).

Looks like I need to fix one of my frames tho'. A little off "kilter", funny it doesn;t look that bad when standing in fron of the keezer.
