I got a fire rock clone carbed in my keg and wanted to bring it to a party. Problem is at the party there will be no fridge for my setup. So my question is would it be ok to put my keg on ice and serve.. i have an aeb ball lock keg.

Sure...ice is fine if you can keep the drunk idiots (like me) from knocking over the co2 cylinder

that last part is easy, if it's a 5lb CO2 tank just use a tiedown strap or some plastic wrap to connect it to your keg.

I've used bungees and such...your plastic wrap suggestion just gave me a "doh!" moment

I took a keg of IIPA (awesome recipe, Chinook, Cascade, Amarillo and Citra, made my nose hairs tremble ) down to my oldest son's home over the holidays, brought one of my gas rigs, and stuck the keg in a kitchen size trash barrel filled with ice. We murdered that poor keg. There were no survivors...

Cheers!

Buy a cheap plastic trash can. Drill a hole in the top for the tap and put the keg and CO2 tank on ice in the trash can. My trash can is on wheels and takes two kegs. I'm like an adult ice cream man in the neighborhood during the summer. Portable beer is popular.

I have a picture in my profile. Two kegs, two picnic taps, a CO2 tank and ice. Works well!

jockey box is your other option. you can swap out the sankey connection in a minute. i find them a pain personally, and would go with the suggestions above, but if you can rent one for a couple bucks they are fine really
