I am in the process of a keezer build and would appreciate some feedback. Currently I have an upright and a chest freezer with the co2 bottles on the outside of freezers with secondary regulators inside the freezers. I am thinking of moving the secondary regulators outside mounted on the wall with lines running through the collar. Am I overlooking anything by doing this? It is a pita with a gang of regulators inside the freezer. I have freezers in the garage in the Florida heat

The only thing I can think of is that as the air temp fluctuates you'll have different pressures so you may be adjusting them a bit more often. I'm not a 100% sure on this but that's the only thing I think you may have issues with. I live in Michigan and as the air temp fluctuates so does the tire pressure in my tires (ex: 70deg to 45deg or vise verse) I would think the same principle would apply just not as drastic; but I may be wrong. Just a thought! Happy Brewing! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/headbang.gif)

Yeah I thought about that. I just wonder if I am at 85 degrees outside where regulators are and 34 in the freezee if the gages will not read as if in the freezer

The way I see it is if the regulators are outside and the beer is inside and cold, the pressure will be what the gauge says regardless where the gauge/reg. is. RDWHAHB.
