That is a good point on no insulation in the lid... might need to get some spray foam and fill that thing out. My lid is cut for a pin lock but I have one true ball lock now that has a good bit of wiggle room. Still was fine all day in the sun but there is always room for improvement.

Didn't get to foaming but I did use some left over white duct tape and chalk board paint. Just gotta get the SWMBO to chalk up whatever is on tap.

If anyone is looking at doing this build in the near future, the great Satan WalMart has the 60 quart Igloo for 28 bucks. I just picked mine up on the 4th.

What's the best tool for knocking the hole out of the to for you 5 gallon keggers?

Wow. That pic is really not good. Took that after a few too many points of the West Coast Dark Mild, evidently. This one should be better.

I used a roto zip with the circle attachment but I don't recommend it at all. That drill was like a hot knife through butter and any snag made it jerk and just disentigrated the plastic leaving very uneven cuts.

I just completed my build for one of these to use with sixtles.

What is the best way to seal the gap in the lid to protect the foam? Is is worth doing? I feel like I saw a post somewhere in the thread, but I couldn't track it down.

While I have not done it yet, I was going to use the white duct tape I got.

Yeah - I guess that is the way I will go as well, since you can't epoxy anything to the polypropolene effectively. I may look around HD to see if there is a decent rubber gasket or anything that might fit in the space as well. I'll let you know!

Maiden voyage with 8 Point IPA from Devil's Backbone in VA (hopefully I don't get banned for a non-home brew). Works like a charm. I used pieces from a flexible cutting board and white duct tape to seal off the foam.

Has anyone tried these 2.5 gal kegs in the Igloo 70qt roller cooler?

http://www.homebrewing.org/25-Gallon...es_p_2823.html

It says they are 9" wide but don't have the black rubber skirting at the bottom... they actually look like they are indented at the bottom so they can stack on one another.
