You could just line it with a couple of heavy duty garbage bags inside each other. Put the keg inside those, then drop the ice around the keg. Once you're done, pull the keg out, then lift the garbage bags with water in the bottom out.

You can also get heavier ply plastic bags online. Something like 6 mil or 8 mil would be pretty good.

Also, I've been trying to think of a way to serve a pair of kegs at a new years party. You may have just given me my answer!

Are you having any trouble with keeping the keg at a consistent temp with the dry ice?

This is what I was thinking. Just some 55 gallon black bags would work, you would only need one.

There is a guy who is making custom cooling bags for carboy's....I cant remember who, but it might be a good idea for the Keg.

You could get a keglove ice sleeve to keep the keg cool. I take my kegs all over the place with them, they work great. http://keglove.com/

Tank is outside- line threads out through the back. Works great and is perfect for rolling out to the deck since the keezer can be moved easily.
