here's another suggestion, though only a small keg.

A three gallon keg and 5lb CO2 tank with regulator fit inside a 10 gallon round cooler (the ones many use for lauter tuns). Just drill a hole at the top and install a tap. Or... there is a cube shaped blue "52 can" cooler with a handle and wheels. I saw someone once who had two put two 3 gallon kegs and CO2 tank inside and installed a tap tower on the lid.

I would try that.  Anyone know what cooler that would work with?  Or the dimensions?

I just happen to have two 3 gallon kegs AND a spare tap tower...

That's awesome, and looks super simple.  Love the PVC tower.

I'll be rigging something that up for my son's christening in Sept.  Wish I had it for our block party earlier this month...

Thanks for the links.

I'm a little late to this, but this is one I copied from a guy on the NB forum.  I never got around to adding an extra faucet, but not much too it.  The 70 qt. Igloo Ice Cube can hold 2 - 3 gallon cornys.  I can also get a 20 oz CO2 paintball tank in there with a fitting for my regulator.  We take it to the family reunion ever year.  Works like a charm and rolls!



I've consumed all of my home brew and still can't relax!  Now what!

dcbc - nice build.  Looks like mine.  What'd you use to write on it? Adhesive chalkboard?

Just spray on chalkboard paint.  Not very durable by any means.  But cheap and easy.
