How would one use this? https://www.northernbrewer.com/products/mini-keg
The usually have a little push tap in the bottom to drain, odd the picture doesn't show it.
Maybe fit it with a funnel and use it as a cuspidor I think they come free if you buy them full of Heineken.,
My opinion, there's a lot better ways to go.
Yeah. The ad mentions additional bungs required to use the thing. It will do for a "cheap" kegging solution but those mini-kegs with a dispenser that uses CO2 cartridges are great! I use them for transporting beer but the thing you have to keep in mind: The beer has to be carbonated before filling one of those little guys. The 16g CO2 cartridge does not have enough gas to carbonate the beer.
I was thinking that way. Priming sugar and let it carb. One of the brewing mags, last one whichever that was, suggested something like these for a british cask ale simulation.
Looks like some good options.
Definitely on my Christmas wish list.
Santa I have been a good boy...
Hunt around for 1 gal ball lock kegs. Torpedo makes 1 gal, 2.5 bal and up. The cool thing is if you enough height in your refrigerator you can stack them while connected to gas and faucets
@Josh Hughes if you brew gallon batches the 4 or maybe even 5 liter kegs would work. They have a ball lock optional lid that would allow you to force carb and run an o2 tank if you wanted to step in that direction. They're pressure rated at 45#. I'm looking at getting a couple and will run them right off my current set up. You could carb with sugar if you wanted and dispense with the little cartridges. Several options.
I have the one gallon version with a dispenser that fits my two half-gallon ones as well. Great for transporting draft beer...
May look into that
And while were on the mini keg topic this is what I'm eyeballing this little regulator is a beast not sure if you've got them on sale over there yet?
Somebody used one a month or so ago. I can't find it though. I think his experience was that it was a bit painful but a very cheap experiment in kegging.
I've got a couple of 6 litre kegs. They fit nicely into our cooler and I've fitted a couple of taps to the cooler. It's nice to take for a weekend away. I carb the kegs in the kegerator and then just use a Sodastream cylinder to push the beer out.
Mini keg, and the price is tough to beat!
Yeah I want to get one of them.
I've been thinking of doing experimental batches using the T piece to push the fermented beer into another soda bottle.
Was thinking of doing some small batch cider beers in 2lt soda bottles then scaling up to 20lt batches.
I rekon these T's would be perfect for that
I have a setup for those as well - to transport I'll fill a one or two-liter bottle, carbonate it then serve it wherever I go. The Carb Caps work well and fit any soda bottle.
Yeah I've got the carb cap but by using the T piece I can put a spunding valve on the gas out and replicate a mini pressure ferment.
That's what I want the T for as well as adding co2.
