Thanks DarthBeer, good feedback.
Think I will give this a shot then.

Have you purchased more 6L bottles or just used the one that came with it?
Any one else try the 3L bottles?

Will a coin work? Or even put a small bolt through the plastic to hold up the cartridge.

I have read elsewhere that a dime or stack of dimes fit in there nicely.

To followup with my earlier questions, I went ahead and picked up a ML home draft system, dumped the beer and found that the 16g cartridges from Midwest Supply do work. I just did a test run on a 6L bottle of water and success!!
Next items are to find more bottles (used home draft bottles) somewhere, and would not mind 1 or 2 more taps!
This is a great little setup.

It was said in another thread about the home draft, that the regular tap-a-draft replacement bottles will fit the tap from the ML home draft. I haven't ordered any myself to verify this but it seems likely so far.

I see where the relief valve is, and not sure how to adjust/close etc. I had the bottle horizontal when I tightened to puncture the CO2 bottle. It seemed to press up the bottle pretty high pressure, rock solid, but made some hissing noise in the relief valve area.
Any thoughts? Druncle, did you get it figured out?

Pic of where I believe the relief valve is and where I heard CO2 from:

The relief valve is directly above the co2 container. It looks like a recessed spot similar to a screw hole. No idea what pressure its set to trip at though.
