This is my Keezer project from last summer when I needed more keg storage for my barley pop. I started with a new freezer I got on sale and built a cart for it. Next I removed the lid and built an extension ring, about 10” tall, insulated it with Styrofoam and weather stripping. The back of the ring had a 3/4” thick mounting plate for some valves and the circulation fan to mount to.
I use an external thermostat to keep the temperature above freezing, usually about 35*, the fan blows downward to circulate the warm air with the cold. If I ever decide to get rid of the beer stuff, the freezer can be converted easily back as there were no modifications to it.
I have room for four 5 gallon kegs and some supplies, or if I need to cold ferment, I can make room and raise the temp for that.
