(Nice rig)

Heh. Since I usually have "something light and something darker" in my portable rig, I am looking for an old time Bud bowtie handle and a Dos Equis Amber handle.

It's really cool- lschiavo did an awesome job with the build. I really love the way he did the co2 tank holder. It worked great, and I can't wait to use it again next weekend!

Lschiavo and I have joint custody of the trashcan and will share parenting time of it.

Joint custody...and you get her two weekends in a row? I sure hope we don't have to drag this into court

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

Damn, that is what I plan on building this weekend. I was looking at my local hardware store at the various cans they had. That looks like a rubbermaid 34 gallon can, is that correct?
EDIT: I take that back, it looks like the 45 gallon can.

I was planning on using my old 2 tap tower for it and mounting it to the lid.

I am not sure of the size. It is the largest the store had. Still a little tight for 3 kegs. Plenty of room for 2!

HAHA- "visitation"!

You can get your parenting time starting on June 13. I'll pack a few things and send her over then. You are welcome to have some visitation this evening of course, but it will be supervised visitation until the day that I turn over custody.
