Not reinventing the wheel here but here is mine so far.

I used a trash can I got from Wal-Mart it was like 18 bux and change. I also like this one the best because it had the squarest body and the smallest hump. It easily fits 3 kegs and my co2 bottle or 4 kegs if the bottle sits outside.

I used a heating vent that I connected to a paint tray to make a drip tray.

It can be attached and removed with some L brackets I attached.

Used a brass hose end with a cover I found at Lowes as a drain it attaches to the can by a threaded PVC piece that screws onto it that sandwiches the can between the two pieces.

I didn't bother insulating the can I will set the can in a water heater tray to catch any condensation from the can.

I built a wooden platform to even out the floor with the hump. It's not connected and after use I will drain the water and pull the platform out to let it dry.

I plan on making a PVC sleeve to hold the co2 bottle that can be attached inside or out.

Still got to stain the wood and install faucets and hoses. I will post more pics when I finish it up.

That it is pretty sweet. If and when I start kegging, I will deffinately have to look into one of these. With the parties and get together our families throw during the summer, I can only imagine how better this would make them!


Enjoy!

Nov 21st big party for the Pats vs. Colts! GO PATS!

Been slowly getting this together and brewing to get ready. I will have a Nut Brown Ale, a Blue Moon clone and Graff in the kegerator and some Apfelwein and Skeeter Pee in growlers for the ladies

This is a necessity since one keg won't last long with me and a few friends

I couldn't see spending the dough they want for a SS one. I spent an hour wandering Home Depot trying to put different things together. Think total price was $15 or so. Comes apart easily for cleaning too.

Looks great. A cheap place for SS driptrays is:

www.barproducts.com

search for DTS-419. They are like 14.95 +shipping. But I like yours better!!
