Would a mushroom beer tower work with the 1 or 2 inch pvc pipe? I’ve been looking on the internet at these and think I need to actually see the bottom of one to see if the pvc would slide right in there. I want to get one with a few tap handles because I want a couple kegs and a keg of root beer in my kegbox. That reminds me–how big is the root beer keg? Isn’t it tall?
Thanks!September 16, 2005 at 7:24 pm #19714Anonymous
are you a homebrewer? Whats a mushroom tower?September 17, 2005 at 10:37 pm #19715
No–it’s a draft beer tower you see in bars. Check out this link: http://www.bannerbeer.com/towers/mushroom/index.htmlSeptember 17, 2005 at 10:39 pm #19716
That link might not work–Go under Banner.com, commerical products, beer dispensers, then to mushroom towers.September 25, 2005 at 12:49 am #19728Anonymous
Yeah, it can be done.
You may have to increase the size of the PVC, but that’s no biggie. Depending upon how many faucets you order, there will just be a few more beer lines. See if they can fax you a spec sheet then substitute the closest size PVC to fit the inside diameter of the tower. Then size the inner tube so the extra lines fit, and there is a space between the inner and outter tubes. Finally fill the space between the two tubes with spray foam insulation.
If you are considering more than 2 kegs, I would modify the plans to create am 8 foot kegger section, and raise or remove the workspace counter. Then I’d place that bar section against the wall (which hopefully is adjacent to a back room) so you could install two 2.7 cubic foot fridges THROUGH the wall. So, you would have one frdige on one end and another fridge on the other, then use small 12 volt fans to circulate air. I would also consider more than one keg box doors.
I would guess you could easily get 4 kegs comfortably into one well insulated 8 foor section (18 inches per keg).
If you need more help, feel free to reply.
