Tap a Keg system???

(1/3) > >>

mswilliams1975:
I am sure this has been asked before but I went back to Sept of 2011 and did not see it. I can not afford to keg traditionally nor do I have the fridge space. I am tired of bottling and this system looks like a good deal and a good alternative. Any feedback is appreciated.

smkranz:
Do you mean a Tap-A-Draft system?

If so, I've not used one but it seems to get OK reviews at online vendors like Northern Brewer, Williams, homebrewtalk,
 and even here:

If this is not what you mean, more details and a link would help.

If space is an issue, you can also use 5L mini-kegs and build a tap for them relatively inexpensively.

I force carbonate in these using a schrader valve on a barbed nipple.  Works great and doesn't take up too much room.

kgs:
What I think about Tap-a-Draft has been echoed by a couple other people I met who have used this system. It works best for a one-time event, like a homebrew share or a block party. Otherwise its carbonation is too variable. But group sharing is why I bought it, so that's fine.

Do you mean that it loses carbonation over time?

Seems expensive for a party where growlers or pitchers could do.
