I live in Houston and over the years I’ve built a descent outdoor kitchen and entertainment space. Although it’s HOT-AS-HELL in the summertime, we are fortunate to be able to use the space year round.
Now that I’ve gotten into homebrewing, the next upgrade for this space is a tap-wall. We have a detached garage and the side of the garage borders our outdoor living space. I’m building a 6-tap wall-mounted tower that has been inspired by this thread.
My set-up will be a “T” with three taps on each side that is wall-mounted (so not really a ‘tower’). Here are the parts I’m prepping.
The wall-mount flange is not pictured and one of the short nipples is extra.
My kegerator sits in the garage right behind the wall where the taps will be mounted. The beer-line run will ‘probably’ be 6-8 feet in length (possibly less). I’m planning to use this 4" flexible duct to run my liquid lines from the kegerator to the back of the wall.

I’ve found a small 53 CFM blower fan on Amazon to use as my tower cooler so I’ll run a line (3/4" or 1") from the blower to inside the black-pipe tap tower to recirculate the chilled air from tap shank(s) to the kegerator and keep everything cool.
Anyone have any suggestions or comments based on their experience? I only want to build this thing once I’m hoping that fan will push enough air and the flexible duct has a high enough R value to keep everything cool.
Here is the cooling fan I’m considering: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07R7VS6HX/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_3?smid=A235LT0EDLFSAR&psc=1
Here are the flanges I’m gonna use to mount the 4" insulated duct between the wall and the kegerator: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0035GS6OS/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
