Tap a Keg system???

<< < (2/3) > >>

anje:
There's also the Party Star mini-keg system. Maybe that's what the OP is referring to?

Personally, I'd want a system that allow for more uses of the containers.

I am talking about long term and multiple uses. I read the reviews and found them to be pretty varied. I will stay with bottling for now until I can afford a real keg system and find the space. I don't want to wast the $70 on something with such a mixed review.

Thank you all for your feedback on this.

Take a look at this before you give up on thinking about mini kegs: http://forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?t=61167

They are reusable for awhile and easily replaceable by purchasing decent craft beer (or Warsteiner) in a 5L mini keg.

Building the tap is easy and relatively cheap if you are a DIYer.

I've got about a dozen kegs and I still keep a handful of minikegs around.

EDIT: I noticed they use copper tubing on that link.  I would go with SS if you go this route.  I bought some on eBay, I think.  It was enough to make three or four taps and give some to friends.

Do you mean that it loses carbonation over time?

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

You're assuming that you're filling from a keg. If you know you're brewing for an event, tap-a-draft makes things simple.

Yes I think the carbonation softens over time. It's not perfect and it's not cheap. With so many small kegging systems coming on the market, it may be a product whose time has come and gone. But it's a good little friend for what it does.
