Right, picking this project back up. I haven’t really done much recently, apart from this:

I know, it looks like I’ve gone over the top on the number inlets/outlets, but, after some thought, adding more at this early stage is a good idea.

The keezer can hold up to 8 slimline kegs. I’m never going to have 8 kegs serving at the same time, but I could easily have 8 at various stages, from fermentation to conditioning to ageing.

Considering…

IN:

CO2: serving at various pressures from ‘cask’ feeding a beer engine to draft lager and beyond, for force carbonating

Nitrogen/pub gas?

Power: dehumidifier, fan, heat cable for managing fermentation temperature, temperature probe, etc.

Beer line: pressure transfers from FV or keg


OUT:

Beer: taps not fixed to keezer, beer engine, transfers (bottling and kegging)

Spunding valve (pressure fermentation and conditioning)

And whatever else?

So you can’t really have too many in a keezer and I should probably put a few more in, if anything else #-o

Rebuilt the freezer lip using uPVC corner trim, a nice stable, flat surface for refitting the lid on.

Used No Nails and a little Gorilla glue in the corners to fill any air pockets. Finished it off with some good quality white anti-mould silicone sealant. Next step is to add a second layer of XPS, under the lip edge, before refitting the lid.

Got the second layer of XPS fitted.

Used Gorilla glue, which is better for foam on foam. Next step is to cover this with uPVC, before refitting the lid.
