Kevin,

Simply, "Yes". The Party Star tap doesn't care what's in the sidewall of the keg. It only cares about a two-piece bung.

As long as you don't over-pressurize them you're good to go. Since you're naturally carbing them (assuming you cold crash them before you pull your first draft), your first glass or two will have sediment. If you don't cold crash them to get the sediment to the bottom it will just be a little cloudy.

Yeah, you can certainly use the Philtap on those kegs that have a built in tap. I have some mild conditioning in a few now. Like Bob, I am a bit obsessed with naturally conditioned session beers and this suits perfectly.

Not carbonated above 1.9 volumes, obviously.

Amazon.com: Avanti Mini Pub 5-Liter Beer Tapper: Kitchen & DiningHas anybody looked at these? I'm seriously considering buying one unless someone can convince me it's not worth it. You can use ALL 5L kegs (including Heineken). That should make it good to clean out a keg and fill it with my own. Now if I could figure out a way to put my own label on the keg.

Here's the mfgr' page:
Product Catalog - Model MBD5L - 5L Mini Beer Keg

They have a very detailed PDF showing parts, assembly, etc etc etc.

I have a kegerator already, so it's not much good to me -- but I will admit, the first time I saw these in stores, I was DROOLING. It just would've required me switching from 5g Cornies over to the mini kegs, and I wasn't really planning on going that way. (I like 'em, they're just not for me.)

Yeah... see eventually, I will have a kegerator or keezer, I guess I'm sorta looking at it as an intermediate step. I think it could be good in that respect. Plus, when I do get the kegerator, I can pass this on to some other new brewer and help them along.

About a year ago I read a write up on a DIY tap for these. I'll try to dig up a link later, I have to dash to a parent-teacher conference.

Edit: Can't find the original site (think it was on geocities) but here is the same on NB forums http://forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?t=61167
