Beer Sphere

A simple mini keg

There have been other beer spheres, that I'm too lazy to link to.

This one begins with a pair of stainless steel bowls. A wooden ring (from, say, a solid chunk of oak) is made by woodturning or with a jigsaw. Grooves for seals would be nice. A pair of flanges or many clips (with small bolts) hold it together and allow disassembly for cleaning. The oaken ring is waxed inside, and has a stout band of iron fastened about it's girth, to hold the pressure and make a solid place for fittings and the like. A handle and feet would be nice too.

Beer sphere. Say it over and over again to yourself until the syllables lose meaning and become just surreal noises.

       [+] I like the attention to detail, where all the hardware is mounted on the iron band, though I'm not entirely sure where the oak ring fits onto the beer ball.

       Beers fear? What's wrong, little beers?

       I have to give this a bone for its lack of flexibility and bounce. I want a beer sphere I can ride like a Hippity Hop balloon, hands on the reins and tap in my mouth.

       or bullrider style: beer sphere steer.

       This is all well and good, but have you checked that it is suitable for filling with high explosives, slinging beneath a Wellington bomber, and skipping across jerry reservoirs?

       Those were cylindrical if I recall.
RayfordSteele, Jan 28 2013
  

       Specifically, they were barrel shaped; a cylinder with a wide waist which acted as a sort of keel. Early trials revealed that a simple cylindrical drum was too likely to 'catch an edge' (if borrowing from modern vernacular is permissable) and go awry.

       //they were barrel shaped//   

       Indeed so. I think, therefore, that this idea could be greatly improved by making the beer container barrelical rather than spherical. Other than that, though, it's perfect.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 29 2013
  

       So if I understand correctally, you are suggesting a keg- shaped beer-containament vessel?
Alterother, Jan 29 2013
  

       It sounds so obvious now that you suggest it. I'm surprised it has not been tried before.
pocmloc, Jan 29 2013
  

       //you are suggesting a keg- shaped beer- containament vessel?// Yes, but specifically in the shape of a keg in the shape of a barrel.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 29 2013
  

       bungston, yes! With the downward pressure of yr arse on each bouncelanding forcing beer up nasogastric tube (to eliminate choking on beerspurt).

       Sphere genius.
