Keezer Build

Post by mdentremont » Tue Aug 29, 2017 12:29 pm

Hello all, I've been pretty quiet on here so figured I'd make a post.

A few weeks ago I decided to make a keezer, after scouring the web for different builds I decided to follow this one: http://homebrewacademy.com/how-to-build-a-keezer/

I had recently bought a mitre saw and hand sander which both came in very handy. The rest (clamps, drop cloth, wood, etc) I purchased the day that I started the build. The build was actually fairly quick, I got the collar built on the first day, and also the first coat of stain. I also painted the deep freeze on the first day. The next few days were spent putting additional coats of paint/stain/varnish.

I got the deep freeze on Kijiji for $80 - it was in decent shape, barely even needed to be cleaned.

The temperature is controlled by an Inkbird: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01129 ... UTF8&psc=1

The only thing that really went wrong was the black Rustoleum paint wasn't looking good on the lid, so I ended up putting some chalkboard paint which is matte and thicker, and it turned out great. I had painted the rubber gaskets on the lid as well, but those never did dry (even now if you touch it, you might get paint on your hand).

Anyway, here are some pics!
