    That is the exact reason I didn't do the sums on my keezer build!! I know it's over $1000... just don't want to know how close it came to $2000.
    But at the end of the day I'm stoked with it and had a great time building.

    It's more a case of preference than advantages. It's probably just a bit easier to aim inside and you can put it right up inside and squeeze. Easy to trickle around the outside if you need to rinse that off. https://www.madaboutscience.com.au/shop/catalog/product/view/id/3239/s/wash-bottle-removable-jet/ is where I got it but be careful clicking on the link, you might find that you will spend more money on a measuring cylinder for your hydrometer, various beakers for boiling and hop additions, a wide mouth Erlenmeyer Flask, pippetes ect lol

    Thanks Yuz - that does actually help a lot!

    That's the main thing Abird! I can heartily recommend NOT adding up the receipts :D

    Do you have a thread somewhere showing your keezer build? I'd be keen to have a look.

    Sounds perfect. I'll have a look at that site, but I'll hide my credit card first...

    Cheers!
    Matt

    Thanks Ben - it was a fun project and continues to keep the beer cold, which is the main thing.

    Watch this space - I'm planning on upgrading it to a 4-tap font in the very near future to get it ready for summer :) .

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with in your build!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Cheers mate ill have to read right through this thread. I get what your putting down in regards to keeping missus on board with the project that was also one comment she made regarding collared keezers she said they loog ugly:rolleyes:. So i flicked her a pick of your creation and she said yep that looks good. I guess beers on me then. Cheers again.

    Ive currently got a 3 tap keg king keggerator but thats on loan from bro so times a ticking till i come up with an alternative. I want the 3/4 tap option but with space to lager hopefully 2 more kegs so room for 6 all up 4 on tap.
