Default 2.5 gallon mini draft system - question

Does anyone have experience with this product?

http://www.midwestsupplies.com/2-5-g...m-new-keg.html

I'm interested if it would fit in the family refrigerator.

Thanks!

I don't have experience, but I am considering going the 2.5gal route -- I've been considering these:
http://www.homebrewing.org/25-Gallon...es_p_2823.html

since they are stackable.

The unit your liinked includes a portable co2 dispensing system -- you'd need carbonate the beer in some other way.

Report back on what you do & how it works out!

I can't get his page to load, but guessing it uses 16 gram co2 cartridge. He can naturally carbonate with priming sugar. I just bought a 1.75 gal version of that keg. It's awesome! Last batch had over 6 gal. Was ready to dump extra gal, but decided to break in that keg. Smaller kegs are very handy!

I assume I would have no problem fitting this one in the main fridge?

My next step is convincing SWMBO that I need a tap on the side.

I dig that tap you have on the left side. Does it pour ok without a hose?
