Thanks, FishinDave. I'm a pretty happy camper right now. I'm impatiently waiting for those three beers to finish so I can fill my kegs! The garage is pretty clean right now, but only because I decided to take on this keezer build. It was a disaster before that! (hint: you can actually earn SWMBO points while building a keggerator)

Anybody wanting to build a keezer but unsure of the task, fear not. I have none toolbelt skills and I was able to pull off the keezer without a problem. It is the ugliest keezer of anybody on the site, guaranteed. But, I'll be darned if beer doesn't come pouring out when I pull the lever The only power tools I used were a circular saw, a drill and a sander. I could have gotten away without the sander. It is not a pretty sight, but it works.

It's the substanceoverformerator.

Expandable to 6 taps.

I knew from reading this forum for long enough that I'd regret buying anything else. This is a brand new setup and I've never had anything else, so I can't compare from experience.
