We got a coldroom for free so we cut the walls up and made boxes out of it. Each cold box holds 5 kegs and we have 3 of them.



Here's another pic of the front.

Well, Monster Mash's post is a tough act to follow. But in the end mine happily served 3 gallons of beer to some great friends, so I'm not (too) ashamed of mine. I utilized the cup holder to hold the CO2 tank, and for now am satisfied using a picnic tap.

Yeah, and he's gonna be sorry he ever built that thing. Doesn't he know 13 is an unlucky number?

Sheeet! NEVER feel ashamed! n Just wish your paying job WAS brewing, or building such beauties as that!

I like your rig - it's compact and most importantly FUNctional!

The absolute WORST portabe setup I have EVER seen was the one I built due to an emergency for a New Years party...It was a standard pony keg bucket of ice holding 2 - 5 gallon cornies, wrapped in a wet towel to keep them cool in the bed of my pickup in Tampa, FL;

The Co2 was a 1 liter(?) paintball gun canister, rigged to a shortened piece of regular orange home depot type air compressor line so it would fit onto the single guage air compressor regulator that STARTED at 10 PSI, then fed to a corny pin lock line to the keg, and the 'tap' was a cobra type that originally was part of a college keg tap - the kind that pumps air (shudder) into the keg.

We managed to kill all 10 gallons, marveling at the result of sheer determination and ingenuity.
My brother-in-law's eyes widened in disbelief with every beer he poured, and he couldn't stop laughing with joy!

Screw MacGyver! I am MacKGuyBEER! We ALL are here it seems.

Haha. Just loaded up the truck for my trash can kegerator's first use/ road trip. Hopefully I strapped it in good enough. We shall see!

The other advantage is that it's a direct tap unit, there is no beer line to clean out the next day.
Hey Doc!
what sort of serving pressure does the direct tap need? does it seem to foam more or less than a regular longer lined setup?

And, what is the 'gallonage' of that cooler? Looks very clean, and neat! I like it a lot!
