I was hanging out with the manager of the campus pub, and he mentioned he was getting rid of the old draught box; I chimed in, and he ended up getting rid of it to me. I tried to pay him, but no dice - he was going to trash it.

The haul: three soda taps, ball-lock connecters, some very dirty lines, a double body regulator sans gauges, and (cream of the crop) a five-line chiller plate. Not bad, eh?

Question is, should I clean it up, restore it, and use it as a draught box, or should I take and use what I need from it (taps for my fridge, regulator for my kegs, chiller plate for homebrew club meetings)?

That's what I'm thinking. For the fridge I'll take the regulator and two taps (with space for #3). I'll test it out and if it works I'll transplant the gauges from my reg and buy a new low-pressure gauge. I might try the chiller plate as a wort chiller, but I prefer immersion in theory (all your wort drops below 100 within a couple minutes).

And, when I get my perlicks, I can reassemble the draught box with the old taps, and use it with my kegs (and my friends') whenever I need to.
