Beer Box
« on: September 21, 2015, 12:14:56 AM »
Just reading about this, poor man's kegging? Or better time management vs bottling.


Interesting idea, and would take the time out of what bottling takes, I guess my only issue would be that (other than the price) is that it takes up alot of fridge real estate, and unless you drink the same beer all the time (which I don't) then it is kinda wasting space in the fridge. Could easily have 8-10 different bottles in the same space.

Also thought you could force carb it, but in the FAQ, they don't recommend it, treat it with priming sugar the same as you would with bottles.

Interesting.....but just not 100% convinced it is better.

For almost the same price I bet you could find a cheap fridge, co2 tank and a keg.  I also like variety, thatís why I have 4 taps :)   

I have one of those keg charger that are used dispense beer.  I used it once at a party and went thru the 4 pack of cartridges.  And that was the last time I used it lol

This looks pretty great for picnics or in backwoods areas without electricity. Can't see it for normal use over kegs tho.

Back when I was a kid I remember my dad used a plastic "keg" a few times but it was a piece of shit! Always loosing pressure and giving him trouble. Do yourself a favor go with tried and true stainless either sanky or corny. Take care of them and they'll last forever. You won't regret it...
