Sheeet! NEVER feel ashamed! n Just wish your paying job WAS brewing, or building such beauties as that!
I like your rig - it's compact and most importantly FUNctional!
The absolute WORST portabe setup I have EVER seen was the one I built due to an emergency for a New Years party...It was a standard pony keg bucket of ice holding 2 - 5 gallon cornies, wrapped in a wet towel to keep them cool in the bed of my pickup in Tampa, FL;
The Co2 was a 1 liter(?) paintball gun canister, rigged to a shortened piece of regular orange home depot type air compressor line so it would fit onto the single guage air compressor regulator that STARTED at 10 PSI, then fed to a corny pin lock line to the keg, and the 'tap' was a cobra type that originally was part of a college keg tap - the kind that pumps air (shudder) into the keg.
We managed to kill all 10 gallons, marveling at the result of sheer determination and ingenuity.
My brother-in-law's eyes widened in disbelief with every beer he poured, and he couldn't stop laughing with joy!
Screw MacGyver! I am MacKGuyBEER! We ALL are here it seems.
