Default My Beer Can, err Man Can...

I know, this isnt exactly original (I got the idea from BierMunchers Trash-a-rator), but I am just so happy with it I had to post it!

Front of the can

Inside of the can

The can is a 96 gallon model, equipped with 4 cornies and taps. I am using a 4 way gas manaifold I built for my home kegerator. I have not insulated yet, but it will get broken in today, pics to follow

Ice bags, I also have a drain in the bottom so I can drain any leaks.

I have a Irish Red, Full Moon clone, Nut Brown and a Cream Stout, which was the hit of the party last night. Really should put my primaries and whats on tap in my sig, but I have about 20 carboys lol

put two drain spigots on it. One that will drain it completely for travel, and another that is about the height of a the lower 1/3 of a cornie inside the thing. (as in draw a line on a cornie, 1/3 up from bottom, put in trashcan to see where it is there, and make a mark).
Then you can leave the upper drain open so melting ice won't float your kegs as they drain, which can be annoying because it shakes up yeast in there (cloudy beers), and if they tilt much sometimes it will keep you from draining them completely.
