Default Stella Artois Mini Kegs

Has anyone ever tried re-using those little Stella Artois kegs you get in the Off Licence? I've been wondering if it can be done.

For anyone that hasn't seen them, they're small enough to fit in your fridge and I think give about 5 litres or so of Stella. They look pretty cool but the only reason i would buy one is to pt my own beer in once I'd neced the Stella!

I have about 14 mini-kegs that I use a lot.

Sure, you can use them. You just need to check into a new bung every once in a while and possibly a tapper depending on the bung.

Does it have the built-in dispenser at the bottom that pulls out and you turn a quarter of a turn? Sure, use them. Enjoy!

Default Grolsh Mini Kegs?

What about those Grolsh mini kegs? Not my favorite beer, but the kegs look cool (nice size for the fridge). Anybody try?

I use the Paulaner, Spatten and Bitburger mini kegs, I've seen the Grolsh minis, it looks like the same keg, just never tried it (I like Spatten and Bitburger

I have used all of those mini-kegs also without any problems.

IIRC, there was a thread about this a while back. Could some one point me in that direction or give a brief rundown of how to use these? Do you prime in them or counter pressure fill?
