Step 1: Materials
Heineken Keg 5 cent deposit
48 oz juice can recycle
Large soup can recycle
Pizza Pan $1.00 at the Dollar store
Ducting $1.00 at the Habitat for Humanity Re-use store
Rivets, screws on hand
The juice can needs to have the top on it, can opener holes ok.
Step 2: Prepare the Keg
Make sure to bleed off any remaining pressure before proceeding.
Next, pry off the green plastic retaining ring on the top of the keg.
Pry off the plastic tap fitting in the middle of the top of the keg.
Use a screwdriver to pry up the lip around the metal tap insert. Use pliers to squeeze the pried-up lip together until it is narrow enough to push into the keg. Leave it inside until the next step.
Step 3: Cutting the Keg
Sanding or filing the edges to remove jagged burrs after cutting helps.
Next, cut about 8 slits in the top radially outward to first ring in the top of the keg - about 1 inch. Bend these tabs up vertically for the chimney collar (soup can) to fit over.
