Pimp My System / Re: Help with keezer design

Thanks,  Andy. I used to have a tap system. (insert divorce story here) I'm now starting from the ground up. Nothing like your buddies staring in amazement at you when you pull a pint of your own beer from your own tap.

Thanks guys. After thinking about  it, I decided to go with the collar. It will be behind the bar, out of traffic. I will still have to pull it out to work inside, as it sits under my backbar. But, after thinking about it, seems like it will be the way for me.  I got the 2x6 today. My temp controller was delivered this morning, and my regulator should be here tomorrow.  I'm very excited!

 I'm going to start to work on my keezer build this weekend. I'm having a bit of difficulty deciding if I want to put a 2x8 frame and run the taps out the front or build a tower. Aesthetically, I really like the looks of the tower. But for practicality, or to be pragmatic a Denny would say, coming out the front is the best option. I really hate to have to pull my freezer out every time I want to get in the top. Can I get some comments on advantages and disadvantages both ways? Thanks.

Finishing up on my electric rebuild, converting from 110v too 220v. I'm about to put my twist lock recpticles in and realized I oversees on buying two L6's, I bought one L6 and one L5. Being as it is for a personal project and not normal use, can anyone give me a good reason not to use an L5? Its rated for 30amp.

It eventually warmed up to just below freezing, so I just went to the local drive-in for a burger and a big icy phosphate. Have to pretend it's summer once in a while. At least it's clear --  thinking of you SoCal guys. Be safe.

I see you're from Akron. I had to drive from Youngstown to Akron yesterday afternoon. 76 was a mess.

Very nice! I'm going to be building one soon. I like this. Great inspiration.

How far from the wall does it need to be to open the lid fully?

Laying in bed here with SWMBO and she just informed me she bought me a chest freezer that we're going to pick up tomorrow! Man is she awesome. And did I mention she's stupidly hot?  ;D
  Pics of build to follow.

Just so I understand correctly, you're not using a PID on the boil kettle. Just the regulator. I assume you crank it to 100% and then dial back after you get a good boil going?

I LOVE the SSR power control. I'm in the middle of converting mine over from 110v to 220v. I am definitely going to incorporate this in my rebuild. Great idea, brother!!  8)

Very nice!

 I'm going to do one similar before too long.

This is too good to be true! My pants just got tighter. So I basically just need to figure out the hardware. Shouldn't be that difficult.

CraftbeerPi looks amazing! But I can't find a cost. This thing can't be free for the taking? Or can it?
