mike_sdak, could you send a pix of your setup? I'd like to see it. I use the bucket method now too.

I started with a 5 gallon Gott cooler, then got ;) a 10 gallon Gott. And now a 15 gallon keg. But I keep them all so I can use whichever is the right size, or all of them if necessary.

I've an old Coleman, the kind with the metal outside, but it only loses ~2f in 60 minutes.

It's red with white inside but I put blue stripes on it so all the bases are covered ;)

It also has a braid/slotted copper manifold.

I use a big orange 10 gallon round Rubbermaid cooler from Home Depot.  Off-season, you can find them there for under $40.

Me too, I love it.  I use a bazooka T with it.

50 qt. green coleman upright.  If it was blue, I'm sure my beer would be a little better.  I can get 18 gallons of 1050 beer out of it with some finagling.

I had a bunch of people out yesterday to brew for TAF.  Here's what it looked like afterwards...
