I haven't even started kegging yet and I want to make one of these. How to make it floatable down the river is the question...

I ended up building one that looks exactly like C. Kirk's. I've taken it out twice and it worked great. I also picked up another 3 gallon keg off craigslist for $20, but it is a pin lock and I haven't been able to do anything with it yet.

Might as well post my 3G setup. The lid does close all the way. I used it a whole one time before breaking the quick change co2 adapter. I'll have to pick up a new one this spring. I was a bit wasted and the beer stopped flowing. So I assumed the co2 was empty, I tried real hard to unscrew it and it broke. Turns out it was still under pressure, the keg was just empty

I got my second keg today and I can't get it in. Does anyone else have this problem? I have the 70 qt cooler and 2 3 gallon kegs. I think the rubber strip around the base is making the kegs too wide. Any suggestions.

I have the same issue with mine. I read somewhere awhile back that there are actually two different versions of the 70 qt cooler. The older one easily fits two kegs and the newer one does not.
