But when are you stuck on an island with lots of Heineken Mini Kegs?
you can also try PET bottles inside plastic boxes and you can make a larger and stable dock :D
But that would take the best part of the project out, unless beer comes in plastic bottles too ;)

How much would one of these kegs cost i the US? The last time i bought one(I guess those are 5l?(169fl.oz)) I paid 300NOK, or 54 USD, so I think it would be a little to expensive for me to make.

they are $17 or $18 bucks by me.

They are only about $24 U.S. We have accumulated a couple hundred more and are about to begin on a shed.

I believe the best part is emptying all these kegs.
What a coincidence. All of my DIY projects start off with this same first step!
Yeah mine too.....and depending how the project went...usually ends with that same step.

The first step should be "Drink 96 mini heineken kegs and then when you are sober again (and not diead from alchool overdose) get them to the location" Preety cool project.

Get your friends to help, it's more fun with multiple people!

Our next project starts in about a month, and we will construct a shack out of heiniken mini kegs and heiniken bottles to let in light. I think we'll call the "Heini-Hut". kind catchy huh?

That's the best "Step 1" line I've ever read...

What a great idea, I suppose it could be used with anything with sealed air inside as well, such as discarded plastic bottles which wash up all over the place and apear everywhere. Great work guys I like it, how long did it take you to drink all that beer.......?
Had the same idea that you did.  Here is what I came up with.
Worked well overall - but - if you place your pier/dock in a river that carries 6" diameter trees 12' up the bank - be smarter than I was - secure it with more than some cinder block anchors.  A few weeks after the build, my dock headed down the Cahaba toward the Gulf; never to be seen again.

depends on your redneck level.

about a year, we have several saved up now... I think we are going to build a floating duck house neck.
couple hours maybe?

Well, you're using empty Heineken "beer" kegs.  That pretty much screams Redneck anyway.

But hey, being a Redneck simply means you make something useful out of the seemingly mundane.  To me, there are few greater compliments.  HOOAH!

Using 55 gallon drums would be cheaper and easier but not as fun :)
dgaf09 (author)  The_Beast6 years ago
Now we have dozens more mini kegs, and not quite sure what to do with them.

it is a good idea and if you use the pond to water your trees or garden you could run a pipe to the end so you pickup clean water and not the mud of the bottom of the pond. have you stocked the pond with fish

Yeah dutch beer the best :P very nice but you must been very drunk!
my_lantana6 years ago
you are really like Heineken so much, haha

Wouldnt finding 4 or so 55gallon drums be easier than drinking 96 Heineken kegs?
Beer does not come in 55 gallon drums! ;)
5 gallon plastic buckets with snap top lids can be found behind bakeries and grocery stores. The one problem with them is that you would have to clean each one out of the frosting, ketchup or butter that had been in them. An empty five gallon bucket would float up to 40 pounds.
Luckly there's a lake in the neighbourhood :)
dgaf09 (author)  omnibot6 years ago
it's just a pond
omnibot dgaf096 years ago
After drinking 96 Heineken kegs it may be that it is a lake.
Easier? Sure, but why be easy when you can be drunk?
I guess, but it just seams like a waste for those little kegs. You could probably sell them on the internet and buy a couple more cartons of piss.
dgaf09 (author)  Holden_vy_s6 years ago
easier, but more fun this way.
How long did it take to consume the 96 kegs?
dgaf09 (author)  chainsawjames6 years ago
nearly a year and a half.
