So I am currently brewing my first batch of beer in a lot of years, got a keg (gonna get more) got a 7lb CO2 bottle on the way. Still got more to get (regulator, hoses ect.) Of course since I will pretty much never drink these at home but will take them to friends houses I am looking forward to how I will do that.
I like the rolling cooler ones but the cost of 3 gallon kegs makes it cost prohibitive.
I am definetely leaning towards some kind of trash can set up. I really like the set up of Biermunchers rolling kegerator and if I knew for sure we were keeping our pick up I would build a similiar one. But without a truck transporting one, even just the empty trash can that big could be a problem.
So I have been thinking of a smaller trash can. Bring keg, trasch can, CO2 all seperate then put together on site. Then even if we end up with a Prius I could still fit everything.
Last night at TJ Max I saw a trash can for $30 similiar to the one in this link:
Sure if I look around I can find it for less than $30, home depot, lowes, wal-mart ect.
You pull the top off and there is a plastic liner with an inch or so of airspace all around it. So my idea is to fill that cavity with spray foam for insulation. With the keg inside the plastic liner you'd have a three inches or so around the keg free for ice.
Attach some sort of paintball tank holster to the back of it like so:
And attach a single tap tower the top of the dome and I think I would have a pretty portable, but yet elegant keg system.
I may look at finding a little bigger one that would allow me to fit the tank on top in the dome.
What do you guys think?
