Default Stainless steel mini-keg

I just received my mini keg I designed and made from my TIG welding friend. It should hold about 17 -18 beers (341 ml each). I pressure tested it with 12 psi CO2 and water and all is good. Now to get my beer inside for a foam test at the tap end. I put shut off clamps on each end in case something goes wrong and plan on using the bike tire CO2 system and a tire gauge to monitor pressures.Quick disconnects allow flexibility for easy swapping out of parts during test phase! They also let me take lines apart and dry them out with air if needed!

Default chain

The stainless steel chain is for carrying keg and adding a cool factor to unit!

Default Thanks

You may be the only one to reply so thanks for taking the time to look at my pet project which has been in the works for at least a year since I can only get items from McMaster when I vacation in the USA!

Thats pretty cool, I'd like to see some close ups of the welds, they look good from far away.
