After many hours of research and talking with my local Rhino Liner guy, we decided it was time to try something new. It turns out that Rhino liner not only insulates very well but can insulate for cold and hot, similar to the inside of a cooler.

My Rhino guy was very cool and actually was just curious to see if it would work so he didn't charge me a dime! The only concern is near the bottom where the flame will be. The metal will reach temperatures in excess of 250 degrees no problem. Rhino doesn't peel off until 500+ degrees so we will just have to see what happens during the first boil. I will post more pics later.

My reason for this was purely because the keg was beat to crap. It was scuffed and scratched (Abita). Rather than sanding, polishing, I went with a little more rugged look.

Cheers!

That is pretty sharp looking there. How thick did he put it on?

I've seen bed liner done before but I believe the system was electric. It was also encasing insulation. Bed liner is supposed to be tough as nails. Looks good, the only problem would be from flames.

I couldn't say exactly. It looks thin. I would say 1/32 of an inch. He mentioned that the thicker he applies it, the more it would run. Also, it is very difficult to make it look appealing when it is caked on.

Are you planning on doing any type of test on this to see if the liner insulates well or not? A side by side test would be cool.
