    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:
