Love this mini-keg! It arrived in good condition and I promptly filled it up with a black IPA that I had just finished fermenting. I let it sit for about three months before tapping and the beer tasted AMAZING. It tasted far better than the same beer that had bottle conditioned. If you are considering switching to a mini-keg setup, I highly recommend it. I use these mini-kegs in conjunction with the Party Star Deluxe tapping system. I like these because they easily fit in my refrigerator and don't take up much space.

TWO THINGS:

1) The description said a two piece bung is included. I didn't receive one and it looks like other reviewers didn't get theirs either. Amazon should change the description. Still a great product. Just a heads up!

2) While it is really nice getting a blank mini-keg like this, many of your local liquor stores (bevmo, total wine, etc) will sell mini kegs just like this already filled up with a good german beer for about the same price.

All in all, I love this and plan on collecting as many as I can! Sure beats bottling.

the bung is not included
and both times i ordered were dented a bit..... not major, just cosmetics but would be good to notify consumers

other then that i really prefer this to bottling; bring camping, house parties, and sits in my fridge for that after work beer without having to clean the bottle after!

These little kegs are great for three gallon batches of beer or cider, think they are about 1.3 gallons each. They appear to have some kind of tap on the bottom that can be used gravity feed with out pressure I am guessing so flat beverage yuk. The tap that comes in the kit fits down through a rubber stopper and then you can charge the whole thing with a c02 cartridge like for a pellet gun.

Was originally looking for a container that I could put in my beer tender, this looks like it will fit but not with the tap on without some serious mods to the lid. Company that sells these is great to deal with, will be ordering again from them! Have not seen these or the tap anywhere else online, looks like they are imported from Germany.

I followed all directions after siphoning fermented wort into the container. At day 12 after sealing this mini-keg, the bottom seam released under the pressure of a basic carbonation - nothing out of the ordinary. At first I thought I had over-carbonated, but a second batch three weeks later also released a bottom seam, and I double checked that batch.

I like to concept, but the material appears to be either too thin or poor quality.

these kegs are cheap as dirt and excellent quality... made in Germany not china... I bought these kegs..(i bought two because they were so cheap) so that i could keg my home brew. iam very glade i pulled the trigger on this. it worked out perfectly. if you plan on conditioning your home brew in these make sure you buy some keg lube and some better rubber keg bungs. I got two of them for 6 bucks... All in all a very cheap way to keg your beer.. it makes bottle day allot easier with a couple of these guys instead of what 54 12oz beer bottles.. pain in the ass to bottle that many beers.. just keg them dude.

This keg comes with a cap, but I would purchase an aftermarket cap. IT also comes with a gravity poor spout at lower edge of the keg, which I used once when my Co2 system broke. I brew small batches and condition in the keg, then tap it with the Avanti system. Two of these fits in the Avanti/Igloo minikegerator. These can be used alone with the pour spouts, and work well with the Avanti/igloo system.

I think this will meet my needs, but as many others have noted in their reviews the description of the product is flat WRONG, there is NOT a 2 piece bung included with this product. If I wouldn't have read the reviews I would not have been able to use the product at all because I wouldn't have ordered the seperate bungs since they were to be included. So far I can say good product but bad product description, the seller is wholly responsible for an accurate description of the products they sell and should correct it as soon as they are aware of the descrepency.

My kegs were delivered in a very timely manner and had no dents. They were complete with bung and built in tap. They are much easier to use than bottles
