Hmmm, where could I get some scrap 2x4's and OSB.......

Scrap Smart Siding, scrap 2x4's, some nails and 5 minutes later, base was there.



Worked great at the Zealots Picnic! Cold beer till the keg blew.

The faucet adapter from Austin Homebrew is a simple fitting with collar that screws onto a Ball Lock Beer Out connector with 1/4" MFL fitting. It will not work with Perlick or Shirron faucets, but the cheapies work just fine.

having a little trouble locating the ball lock faucet adapter. Do you happen to have the item# still?

My latest addition and most portable draft system. The 3 Gallon KEGLove with ice blanket.





I got an email a couple of weeks ago that they just released the 3 gallon version, so I picked up the system of the KEGLove and ice blanket for $39. I got an extra ice blanket since I live in Texas.

It worked flawlessly to dispense 3 gallons of Apfelwein at a party. I picked up the low profile tap handle, adapter, and CO2 charger from Austin Home Brew.

This puppy truly is portable and no fuss or muss. I'll be selling the old system.

My only concern is when you transort you keg in your car you will be dispencing foamy beer for like 3-4 hours after from the shaking of liquid in the keg.

I took a 5 gallon keg from my kegerator and brought it to my fathers for his party and it had to sit for like 3 hours before I got a decent pour out of it.

It went straight into his fridge when we got there and I used a cheapo plastic faucet with tubing.

I also dont understand why you need the new guages?

I know why you would need the co2 tank adapter because the paint ball is going to be smaller but why change you guages on the regulator?

Do you need the whole setup or do you just need to change the adapter?
