No, I'm not asking how to keg - I can browse the forums and figure that out.
A co-worker asked me about the cost of a keg of (store bought) beer for her upcoming wedding. I told her that she'd have to pay the cost, put a deposit on the keg and rent the tap... or she could get a hand crafted beer from me for the cost of the ingredients. I was only joking, but apparently she and her fiance and now seriously considering it.
My dilema is that I am not currently setup to keg & I don't have the spare cash for it right now (if I get kegs, then I'm gonna have to build a kegerator, draft tower, etc). She knows this and offered to buy the kegs and sell them to me afterwards. Am I stupid for even considering this? It would be my first time kegging and I fear something would go wrong and I would give her an inferior product.
If I do go through with this, do I get a CO2 system at the same time? Would a hand pump and picnic tap be good enough, where it is going to be drank all in one day? And if I go picnic tap, force carb, or prime with sugar? My gut tells me a priming sugar, hand pump and picnic tap would be good enough, but I'm in unknown territory here.
The fiance is a lager drinker, I think she doesn't mind a (commercial) red ale.
