Good to see a bunch of kegging setup photos being added to this site, so here is a link to a new page on my web site with photos of my bar. 2 years ago Mrs GL said a bar would be OK but it had to have a retro feel. Since I dont have any chippies in the family, it couldnt be something as flash as Kens, so I went more the Gilligans Island route. Even then it has taken me about 2 years to get to the point where it is nearly finished. And to rub salt in the wounds, Kenny does a ventmatic bulk buy a couple of monthss after I do my own personal tap bulk buy!

Hope it isnt too painful on dialup, theres a fair few photos.

That is fantastic GL ! Top work mate.

Love the doc pic's too :)

I wonder if you could sheath the beer lines in pvc (insulated on the outside) and seal it all (like some of the home made CFC's) and just keep pumping water through the pvc, out an outlet near the tap end, and back through the fridge??

I'll be showing my wife those photos so I can allocate space when we buy a house :)

Love your work there GL - The drip tray is inpsired !

We might have to change your (unofficial) name from being Capt Sensible to Skipper....

when do we get to test it? Its very important that the tap cooling system works before the 'cabana' season hits.

Very nice GL I do like the drip tray like everyone else. I just wonder what your neighbour thought you were doing standing out there with a hairdryer and a beer in your hand. I guess they probably don't ask questions with those small dogs of yours.

What time is happy hour?

GL , that is truly sensational....a "Gilligans 5 beer tasting tray" maybe 4 and a soda water :p

A thought to assist heat transfer fom the shank to copper coil, maybe some of that electrical heat transfer compound (places like altronics etc have it) white goey stuff that goes between transisters and heat sinks?

One question GL. You don't always have to go down the backyard for a beer do you? Or do you take down a jug to fill to save on trips ?

Wow, great setup!

Do you take your taps off overnight to stop the weather getting to them?
