So a good buddy of mine managed to score a 1/2 BBL keg of Yuengling! Seeing as how we live in CA you can imagine our excitement! My question is, if he just uses the regularly supplied keg hand pump, do we run the risk of oxidation after a few days, ie is our time limited on the beer using this tap? Or is there a way to hook up c02 to a sanke keg? And not even worry?

The hand pump will cause the beer to go flat within a short period of time. What you need is a keg coupler with faucet, CO2 tank, and a way to keep the beer at the correct temp (kegerator) in order to keep it for an extended period of time. IMHO of course.

It's Yuengling. If you're drinking it right, you'll kill that keg before it even has a chance to consider going flat!

if you can find a sanke coupler to borrow or even rent, you can switch out the connectors to whatever your friend uses on his system. Pressurize and drink the keg...swith the connectors back and return the coupler.pretty easy. I have one here that I did that to. I havent had occasion to use it yet but it was an easy switch.
