Rollera
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:53:30 PM »
Well, I put this over in the wood/cask section because it
also fits there. But I thought it could go here as well because
It is something I made that works actually quite well.
Gives new meaning to the lyrics "Roll out the barrels"



Tall enough to rack in to corney kegs, and tall enough to be a pain to
get fresh beer back into...

You can use CO2 to push the beer out. 2-8psi will get it up at least 6' from my experience. That way the barrel can be closer to the ground, less of a tip hazard! :o

Yes I put long lag screws up thru each "leg" physically anchoring it to the dolly.

Plus where every leg meets the dolly, I put hurricane angle clips to further reinforce
the stress and strain of rolling an elevated 100# of beer ( its actually150# beer + Barrel)
