Please post pics of your neighbors faces the next time you have a party and they're pulling pints out of a garbage can!

Great idea, BM!

I went to a homebrew party back in March and there was a guy there with this same setup. He had 4 taps out the front and a drip tray bolted onto it too. It looked like it worked great. I'm not sure if he insolated it or not, I did not look inside, he had some boxes sitting on top of it with growlers in them.
I would think that you could line it with some foam insolation or expanding foam to help keep the kegs cold with ice or ice packs.

For a party that lasts several hours, I doubt you would need to insulate the can. The ice will easily last that long. Probably takes a few bags though, just to cover the kegs!

I don't think you'd need to cover the kegs completely. I have not taken a corny to a party yet but since the beer is pulled from the bottom, and there is only a very thin sheet of stainless between the beer and the ice, I think you'd cool the beer quick enough just by having the keg half covered with ice, though if it gets near empty you may have issues with them floating.

I would drill a drain hole in the bottom of that puppy and put some type of valve there.

I will be very unwieldy when full water from melted ice.

Also, it will need probably at least 50# of ice to pack the kegs.

I'm looking forward to the YouTube video of it in action with the BierMuncher signing off with his famous BM signature wave!

+1 on the drain valve.

While a drain is nice, it isn't necessary. I've got a cart made out of the base of a gas grill, insulated with 2" foam board and lined with a kiddie pool to hold the ice and not drip (holds 4 kegs). When I need to take the water out I just break out the shop vac and suck it out! Works quite well. A valve would be nice, and not to difficult to install on a garbage can, but would be a pain to install in my cart.

I went ahead and purchased a one pound bottle as well, knowing I'd use it one way or another.

I also picked up some fittings for the hose connection:
Attachment 6109
Ill be picking one of these up for the new fermenter. It can be pressurized for wort transfer.

Looking good BM, looking real good!
