Four Coleman ice chests side-by-side with a door on top. One of the
house rules needs to be that two adjacent ice chests cannot be pulled
out at the same time - DAMHIKT.

A couple of big Igloo coolers, 50 lbs of ice, 3-4 cases, and you are
Finding someone to make a beer/ice run<G>
Been there, done that.
Me, too. I was the oldest in my particular suite, so I got elected to make the
liquor runs. I can remember making one on a moped. I had loaded down the back
of the thing so much it was all I could do to steer it.... the front end was
barely touching the ground. However, being the skilled and natural athlete that
I was, I managed it without breaking a single bottle.
My roommate was arrested for driving drunk on a moped. My moped -- I
was too poor to afford a car at the time. I carried many a case of
beer on that thing, the beer balanced between my legs. A mighty 50cc
two-stroke engine, one speed, top speed of almost 30mi/hr on flat
ground. But it still beat the hell out of walking. I must have put
10,000 to 20,000 miles on that little thing.
Couple years back an acquaintance of mine made a couple out of reclaimed RV
cooling equipment and rolled it on its back and hooked up a drain. Built a wood
case for it. Each
held something like 6 cases of barley pop plus ice. The pair was enough for one

As usual I can't wait to post, and haven't read anything else yet. You need
to know this.
I bought a mini fridge. A std. white one. The type with a freezer up top
inside (with a flap down door) , a full height swinging front door, which
had a bottle holder shelves on the inside of the front door. I got it new
on sale. I measured every dimension and took a picture with stickies inside
showing them all.
I was into home brewing beer at the time. I would brew my own batch, and
used to have my own brown plastic bottles. At the home brew place you could
clean out your bottles, and fill up using their equipment. Can't remember
about the caps, whether to keep em or not. Doesn't matter. I found out
they would just as easily fill your entire home brew batch into keg(s),
rahter than bottles. The whole thing only took an hour, hmm. Make a new
batch, and fill up yer keg(s). There was about seven and a half cases
(24x341mL) for $80 or something
Then I went to the Brewers Retail, the only place to buy beer in Ontario,
and bought their taps. You may have cheaper options. The chrome plated one,
the same one at all the bars. Just used the black plastic handle it came
with, but could add your own. The kit came with all the hoses and fittings
to connect to a CO2 bottle, which come in std. sizes. I think I got the 5
litre size? You get the CO2 bottle from a safety supply place, where they
sell fire extinguishers. They refill them for $10 or something. Its just
compressed gas, same as all taps. Bottle to keg. Keg to tap. Std,
threads, all included, with hoses, no loop back. Bottle pressurizer keg,
don't drink it.
Kegs themselves can be bought form the Beer Store (Breweres Retail store),
or directly at the brewery, where you can measure the kegs. The kegs are
proprietarty and are a multitude of varying sizes in all the capacities.
You leave a deposit ($50) and keep the keg, no questions asked. Its yours.
Or bring it back for $50, or a new keg.
Then I cut off the white plastic off the inside of the front door leaving
cardboard and foam, hole saw a (~3/4"?) hole in the front of the door for
the tap, attaching flush and tight with a threaded shaft and nut
(included), the CO2 bottle sits on the back ledge of the fridge, behind the
lower crisper area, the keg sits on that floor bottom. I had to take the
frezeer door off, then the neck and hoses fit perfectly, and the temp was
perfect. To the degree.
There a clamping valve that goes to the CO2 tank (had a pressure guage
somewhere in there I think), clear plastic hoses, fittings, a front tap, the
keg, a fridge, and any beer. Nothing else. The beer is cold, and its not
wasting energy. One keg in, one keg out.
Best beer I ever had. It was heavenly. I had to sell it, I drank too much.
Now I'm down to 6 a day, thank god. Sold the whole thing away for less than
$300, including the (one?) keg. You could put a lock on it. And you don't
need to homebrew. Theres guys who run hoses to their living room.
I have some thoughts here. First if you are going to be drinking often, keg
beer is cheaper than bottles or cans, and if you rely on refrigeration then
you never have to worry about running out of ice or draining the cooler.
I think I would search for a refrigerator that can be converted into a keg
storage/dispenser, and then pass the hat for the necessary plumbing for the
tubes, the taps and the CO2. This will also reduce the amount of clean up
required and reduce the amount of trips to the liquor store.
If you are not part of the solution, you are not dissolved in the solvent.
40 ounces... it's a tough-guy-spit-on-the-floor kinda expression. A
quart, in these necks of the woods, is 40 ounces....'cuz our gallons
are 160 ounces. Imperial and all that rot.
A case of beer is a two-bah-four... or toofer.
You guys will have to work a little harder to become a Canuck.
Sorry I have a hard enough time remembering how to be an "american".
But upon the beaches of North Carolina, the drink was 5 gallons Hi C,
2 gallons Ever Clear, and cut up fruits.

Went to a CO-OP, school (work a quarter, school a quarter).
One quarter my roommate worked in the pharmacy at the Cleveland Clinic.
Pharmacies have 195 proof grain ethyl.
More than once a large cough syrup size bottle would show up in our
13th floor room containing 195.
This required a visit to the local grocery for some Hawaiian Punch.
Middle of winter, Cleveland, OH, 13 floors up, 10 minutes on the
window ledge, no ice necessary.
