Thanks guys, really liking it.

Once it gets a skin of some sort it will give it a classy look.

Yeah, great job!  I have a four tapper with a very similar configuration.

Nice job! It really looks good. How far apart are the taps (on center)? They look a little close together once the tap handles are on.

The holes were drilled 3" apart. Now that its together 4" would have been better.

Just have to be creative when I make my tap handles so that they are not bumping.

If you wanted to adjust do a re-drill and fill the old holes with dowel pegs. A little putty and sanding. The tap handles don't look like they interfere with each other as is, though.

Nice build. Now you need to get 4 beers on tap. :D

They dont interfere with each other at all. If you look at the pic with the 4lrg commercial taps, I could pull each open without hit the one next to it. So im leaving as is.

Working on my 2nd beer now.. :)

There's the tricky part... Getting all the taps going. I built a 6 tap kegerator last November to replace my defunct 2 tap setup. I finally got my sixth beer on tap two days ago.

Tell me about it..... three, and there's always one empty. But, got four kegs in the pipeline as we speak and brewing more tomorrow.

By the way, Ray, nice setup. I like the balls to the wall dive right in approach..... Started brewing in October, now have a 10G all grain setup, a keggerator with three taps and two freezmenters..... ;D
