Won't salt water corrode even stainless steel?

That's a fair point. I was thinking about lowering the freezing point, not corrosion. The more I think about the details of this, the more I think I need to just find/make space for a regular kegerator, but if I were going to continue with the idea, there are other solutions: Alcohol/Water mix, antifreeze, ice-pack-filler-goo, etc.

I think any benefits reaped are outweighed by having to store your beer warm, cold conditioning and cold storage are a GOOD thing for many reasons...

While it will work, I would not invest time, effort, and money into a warm storage and cold plate serving arrangement...JMO cheers!

Yeah, I think for now I'll stick to a stand-alone kegerator, though I will keep this idea on the stack (and an eye on Craigslist) as a possible soda chiller. No reason I couldn't have draft root beer too...
