I hear that the drip tray is going to be a real groin-ripper.

I am also very intrigued by this. How many 5 gallon kegs will one of those 16oz tanks push? If my math is correct, I calculate 18 (at 10psi at 45F). That is not bad.

Trust me…I’d like to find out too.

Here’s my worst case guess.

Midwest claims it takes 2 - 5, 16 gram chargers to dispense a charged keg. I’ll use the worst case of 5.

5 chargers at 16 grams each is 80 Grams to dispense one keg. It takes 28 (ish) grams to make an ounce. So each keg will take 2.86 ounces. Each 16 Ounce canister should dispense 5.5 kegs.

I’ll have on 16 ounce canister, and two 6 ounce canisters so I should be fine…unless there’s a leak.

If you haven't insulated it, you may want to consider using expanding foam. It would work well, fit properly, and you should be able to pull the garbage bag out and have it stay where it needs to. If you need to modify it at all, it's as easy as a serrated kitchen knife and a shop vac.

Default Insulation

I decided to go with the 1", but higher quality insulation. I have two layers on the bottom and two layers for a lid.

I also decide that rather than dealing with 6,000,000,000 tiny Styrofoam pellets forever, that I would wrap the edges in duct tape. The 15 minutes was well worth it.

A pretty snug fit...but it will certainly keep the kegs from jostling around.

Default Finishing Touches

I decided to spend a little extra time to class things up a bit...

A little spare wood...some mahogany stain...a few shiny bolt thingies...and done.
