After seeing an incredible watermelon keg online, I knew I needed to try it for myself.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a similar tap and pvc adapter, so I had to modify the design somewhat.
***update*** I've added pictures of a bigger melon keg we made for a recent party.
For more info on my watermelon kegs or my other projects, you can check out my blog.
Step 1: What you'll need
-Hose Bibb, Quarter Turn (that's the tap)
-Faucet Lock Nuts (those black circles)
-Brass Pipe Nipple 1/2" (the piece with threads on both ends)
-Coupling 1/2" (what looks like a hex nut)
-drill bit (optional)
From the grocery store:
-Watermelon (I used a very small melon for this demo, but you'll need a big one if you want more than two drinks out of it)
-Saran wrap (or similar cling wrap)
From your kitchen:
-ice cream scoop (a spoon could work in a pinch)
-strainer / sieve
From the liquor store:
-vodka or your poison of choice (this is optional, but there's not much of a point without it, right?)
