Yeah, it seems like this is more suited towards growler sales than homebrewers. It kind of reminds me of the Heineken mini-keg dispenser that Krupps used to sell. At $350, I might as well spend the extra cash for a real-deal kegerator. And I have a hard time imagining that the whole "Synek-bag instead of growlers" movement is going to reach critical mass at that price point.For the o2 it states there is a special fill valve
All I have to go on is the email they sent us, which says to fill the bags from the bottom using a tube just like one would a growler. It does seem like they've contracted with some large breweries to fill the bags using a proprietary sealed header, so this could be a great way to get fresh beer from Sierra Nevada et al.
Still, if the price was on par with a Keurig (like in the $150 or under range), I'd snap one up in a heartbeat. But that's only because I don't have a full-time kegerator at the moment. It's a great idea, but I think it is very price-sensitive. If there's not enough demand, then brewers aren't going to use them. And if I can only find Red Hook ESB at my local store in the Synec pack, then I'm not going to want to buy a machine.
