Default Draftmark Tap System

Has anyone see this yet?

Draftmark::Agegate

I know it's reusable, but can it be hacked for home brewers?

Sorry suckers! It's only available in the St Louis area.

Well, someone's gotta be first.

yeah, that looks like a neat concept, they should make a modified one that would take the typical sized growler and just sell special caps to go onto it.. i would buy that!

Looking through the website, they use air to push the beer.
But they say that the air does not come in contact with the beer.
Beer in a bag inside of a bottle? Not sure.
I might have to call in a favor to my cousin to procure me one along with a refill.
I am a little hesitant as the main unit is $50 and the refills are $14.
If you get one please post a lot of detailed photos.
I think you could modify a cap to force carb using co2 or naturaly carb with sugar.

My coworker bought one and brought me the empty bottle. It's a bag in a bottle.

Hmm. Makes me rethink it's re-useability.

I don't think you could carbonate in that, but maybe you could put carbonated beer from a keg in there and serve from it.

Are you able to remove the cap and see if it can be refilled?

Is there a fitting on the bottom for the 'air pump'? Can you get a picture of that?

This looks like it works just like the Party Pig.

The cap is a press on. With small ears. Two ways to hack it. Either get a small tube and pressure fill it with your already carbonated beer and put that yellow stopper back in it with the little t at the spout to the closed position. Which will fill and press the air our of the bag at the same time. Or, very gently pry the cap off after using and clean out the bag. Then, when you want to use, purge plastic bag with CO2 and expand it in the bottle. Fill with your precarbonated beer, press lid back on with the yellow spout in it an closed to seal it. The bags should wear our and it would really suck if the lids didn't stay attached. Be nice if someone made new press on caps with the seal for a dollar or two. It looks like it took a lot of force to push the cap on as every one has the "whitening" from pressure being applied. I've gotten 6 of them ready to try for a home brew. It is neat.

I purchased one last week and I think it is great. A little expensive but the beer is really good. I have had ShockTop and Bass Ale. It comes out a little foamy but the beer taste wonderful and it is so easy. I recommend it highly. I cannot wait for the summer to use it for the pool. What experiences have other people had??
