    So, I got jealous that lots of people were building a keezer, so I've started my own acheers.

    Bought a chest freezer from Gumtree for £30, bought the widest piece of C16 timber for the collar, and got busy with the chop saw. I still need to finish things off but it's a start...

    Taps are from Amazon, look like Intertap clones, with flow control. I'll report back on the quality once I'm finished.

    Nice one Harry, you got off to a good start with the build. If you haven't already drilled holes for the taps here's a tip: plan where the cornys will sit so you can get them in and out without the tap shanks blocking them.

    Good tip @foxbat , thank you.

    I'm tempted to put the taps towards the side where the freezer is shallower because I can't store kegs up that end, but that means it'll be asymmetric, which will really upset me ashock1:laugh8:

    Such good advice. I put up a load of blinds and worked out where the put the holes so they'd be super flush to the windows. Didn't even think about the handles so there are bulges half way down. It looks scenes where hands are about to come out of the wallpaper in horror films. Urghhh.
