Becks, Heineken mini keg
 
Hey everyone,
I was at the supermarket today when I saw the Becks and Heineken mini kegs. I was wondering would I be able to reuse theses for my homebrew? It seems like the only way to consume the Becks is threw the bottom spout. If that spout is opened can it be reused? As for the Heineken it seems to have its own C02 system in it. Anyone have any experiences with theses? Thanks in advance guys.

You can definitely reuse those mini-kegs. Not exactly sure how, but I've seen others discuss it here...

Consider this a free bump. :)

I've looked at the Heinie kegs and thought...too much hassle.

I have over 20 of the minikegs and they work fine.

How do you seal them after you put your home brew in? My wife found an electric cooler that you place those kegs in to dispense the beer. It looks kind of like a water cooler.

Do you tap them or use the red plastic despenser at the bottom?

this place sells replacement parts for minis http://www.thegrape.net/browse.cfm/2,1232.html

Re-use the bung that came with the keg or buy new ones.

I always keep extra on hand.

I have a couple of kegs without the gravity tap on the bottom and have to use a CO2 tap to dispense.
