I am brewing 5 (maybe 6) kegs for my sons engagement. The plan its to sit then all in a big tub of ice with picnic taps on each one to pour from.

I know picnic taps are relatively cheap at $8 from CB, by the time I add disconnect and multiply it by 5 it will add up to a fair bit for a one night solution.

Are there any kind brewers in Melbourne (east) that could loan me picnic taps and/or disconnects in early July.

any other ideas on how to set up a multi keg system for a one off event are welcome.

Do they all need to be served at once? Maybe 2 at a time and you only need to buy 2 taps and disconnects.

Ideally I want to serve them all at once, because we will have 5 different beers. In particular the dark ale and porter might not appeal to everyone. So we want to have the "easy drinker brews" there for the swill drinkers while still having the specials there for those that appreciate them.

Or if you're doing 5 different styles, label the kegs and have 2 picnic taps to swap around between kegs
i'm sure a tiny bit of the previous beer won't matter to anyone

I have a quad and double font and taps you can borrow from now (they'll need a good clean) that way you just need a bit of wood to drill holes in to mount them, I have no spare disconnects though.

I possibly have the freezer lid if you wanted that to mount, let me know
