A modern keezer
« on: October 27, 2017, 09:00:50 PM »
A quick post, I'm writing on a write-up on the specifics of building, but here's my keezer I just built. Concrete top, chalkboard sides, and it only took about two weeks to throw together. The tower is cooled by a computer fan, with some 3d printed/PVC ducting. Skull tap handles are cast concrete, from a silicone ice cube mold. It's all on a $40 Craigslist chest freezer, and fits 3 kegs and a CO2 tank.

It looks cool but my first question is 'How much does that weigh?'.  Will the hinges hold up under the strain?

Very interesting design.  I admit I'm not that creative so it is fun to see what everyone else comes up with.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

It's actually skim coated plywood, so not whole lot. I lifted it in place by myself.

Oh man, that asymmetric tower is cool.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

That would make a big difference. My early morning, half awake, not enough caffeine brain could only see 3.5" of solid concrete.   ;D

Very cool look.

Very nice! Definitely inspires me.
