Default Can Applewine Be Put Into Mini Kegs?

I appologise for asking so many questions. I looked everywhere on the forums about Mini Kegs (5 liter kegs) and applewine. Can I put applewine into a mini keg? If I can do this, are there any recommendations?

Yes, it can be put into a mini keg. For best results, it should be put in your stomach.

I have 2 5L minis of it aging in my basement. Seem to be holding up fairly well.

Since I did half in kegs and half in bottles I am drinking the bottles first gauging on when it has aged enough to be really good.. then I will bust out the kegs for friends, so they can all call me a mother f@#%er in the morning...

Thanks for the info guys. Im slowing try to drink about 8 kegs I got at the local store. At about 14.95 for a full keg oposed to the $10-14 + shipping on a new one from a store it seemed for realistic to get a 5L with beer already in it Im paying $2-3 for the beer in essence.

Its been a fun experience so far. Im pretty sure I cant remember Saturday?

However I do remember Sunday morning <<thats me inspecting the bathroom plumbing

*** Would I carbonate like I would beer? And does one use the tap-a-draft system on it, the hand pump, or something else?

I believe the kegs your want have a stopper on the top and a pump on the bottom.

Man, I want some of those as long as you can reseal the top.
The beer looks pretty interesting too. Might be good to bring to a party and keep the keg for yourself.
I think its a great idea with 5 cent tax's on all cans and bottles, at least you donating less to your favourite charity called your State.
