Traveling kegerator!


Holds TWO 3 gallon cornies


It rolls!


Once the kegs are fully carbed, I'll push beer with this:


I can't wait to take this on a trial run!!!!

**Also, for those that think this is a waste of time/effort, the tower comes off easily, and the cooler can double as a fermenter, where a 5 or 6 gallon carboy fits inside. The neck of the carboy fits through the drilled hole. I can keep fermenting beer cool by adding ice.

**Disclaimer** I stole the idea. I could never come up with something so genius on my own.**

Yep. I had one on hand, along with an extra tower, so I couldn't pass up doing this.
Now I wish 3 gallon cornies were more readily available.

Lovin' it!

How many bulbs do you recon it will take to push the full keg?

However you've given me an idea---

Strap the keg to one side, a co21 tank to the other and run the beer through a coolant coil to the tower---- a traveling jockey box.

Don't know. that's up for experimentation!
A buddy of mine just gave me about 50 of the cartridges for free, so I figure I'll run out of beer WAY before CO2!!!

Could work, but I'd be concerned about where to put brackets (or other methods on how to mount the keg and tanks) on the cooler. I'd think with all of the weight it would sacrifice the integrity of the cooler walls.
