Kegerator build questions

So I am finally building a kegorator and I have a few questions. My brother, who is a metal worker, is building me a stainless tower and I was looking at the tower shank assembly at ( Does anyone know what the depth and drop of the tailpiece are for this item?

Also does this list look like everything I will need? I already have a regulator and 1 faucet.

(1) Perlick Forward Seal, Stainless Steel Beer Faucet (With Handle (FA903)
(2) Flare Tubeing (FFL to Barb) Swivel Nuts (1/4" to 5/16")
(2) Disconnects (Set of 2) for IN (GAS) and OUT (liquid) Ball Lock 1/4"MFL

(4) Oetiker Clamps (11. 8) for beer lines

Am I missing anything?

You’re using a tower, make sure that has all of the nuts and flanges you need. (Looks like that shank is complete).

Re: shank depth. Email Ben, he is always super helpful.

CO2 Tank.

Kegs! Lots of them!

Thanks for the reply spykeratchet. I just emailed Ben about the tower shank. As for the kegs I already have some and will continue to collect them. I also already have a 5lb CO2 tank but I am considering getting a bigger one. The tower should have all of the parts needed to mount it, my brother who is building it builds them for bars for a living.

Sounds like you’re set. I have a 10# and a 5# co2 tank. I use the 10 for carbing in the chill chest and the 5 for dispensing in the kegerator. I like having them separated.
