Default My Experience With The Coors Lite Home Draft (Video)

First off I'll point to the inspiration for this thread:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/coors-disposable-keg-party-pig-127302/

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/miller-lite-home-draft-dissected-181602/

I finally found that they were selling these in my area so I decided to pick one up and chronicle my experience with it. Hope you all find this helpful.

I'm interested in seeing how this turns out... I'd heard that when using natural carbonation in a keg setup that you use slightly less priming sugar though?

Tomorrow I plan on picking up a couple co2 canisters and seeing if I can force carbonate some tap water and dispense. Would you mind if I posted my videos here? No need to create yet another forum imo.

I guess time will tell. The bottle has definitely filled with co2 and now has little to no give. I'm happy no co2 is leaking out.

Please feel free to post here. I'm interested to see what others do with it. In one of the threads I linked I believe someone was able to successfully force carb some water (or maybe it was Apfelwein).

Just a quick fyi for anyone trying this. Be careful how much liquid you put into the bottle. I only left like an inch of headspace so when I screwed in the co2 canister it almost immediately activated the relief valve and shot cold co2 in my face. Its fine now but it takes a few minutes to recover thinking you just created a bomb and it went off!

Anyway, the water is currently carbonating in the fridge, cross your fingers.

Those were good how to videos, I might get one of those for the club meetings, fill with carbed beer from the tap, and charge with a fresh co2 cartrage.. I have seen them in the store, but I never gave them much thought for homebrew.

Looks awfully similar to Tap-a-Draft. Wonder if Coors licensed it...
