Get your mum or dad to scope out the kegerator really well, take photos, etc. especially around the coupling. They can use the excuss that you have been talking about kegging and they thought it would help you. That way you will know exactly what you need to do.
how long are you staying with them? long enough to kick the 5 gallons? If so you should be even be able to cut the gas/beer lines, connect corny connections, then cut again and put the sanke back on at the end - all up you will cut the lines down 2" max.

I believe this would work just fine

Especially combined with the idea to prime with sugar.

Yes that type sanke would likely work fine in his kegerator...that is the new style plastic sanke "disposable or one way" type keg. They can be refilled easily by unscrewing the stem and filling with beer. It is like a soda bottle inner keg, and an outer type plastic bucket shell...they are lightweight.

They are also a little larger than a sanke sixtel at 11" wide as opposed to 9"", so if interior kegerator space is a concern????

Good luck!

Thanks to all for the suggestions. There are some devious members of this forum!

I'll spend some time familiarizing myself with cutting and setting keg lines. Part of my anxiety with a corny solution is that I simply have no hands-on experience with kegs. By all accounts, cutting lines seems pretty straight forward, and I consider myself both handy and adventurous (this combination is known as "foolhardy"), so I should give the corny solution serious consideration.

That said, either a sixtel or a pubkeg would be an easy solution (and if you figure the costs of the adapters, a close call on price).

Thanks!
