Interesting. That's why I asked in Post #15 what he was talking about.

Reminds me of a Mr. Beer. Looks like a pain to clean.

Good luck, OP. I can't help you from here.

There actually is something similar to it that is sort of a rip-off of a mr beer/pressure barrel hybrid.





It is kinda interesting that with it you can bottle in a closed system by pushing the beer into the bottles with gas.

I wonder....You can get nitrous chargers for whip cream machines, I wonder if you can do a stout in one of them with real nitrous?

I have a feeling that now that cooper's owns mr beer, we may be seeing pressure barrels on the market here. But maybe not, because like you all kinda thought, corny kegs are readily available here.

Not readily available for long. My LHBS has been sold out of ball lock kegs. Their price? $65 +tax.

Next closest LHBS... extra 20 miles... $45... they get them in one or twice a month, sell out in a day or two each time.

Third closest LHBS... extra 30 miles downtown in traffic... $60, tax included, but they need to be rebuilt. Last used for Sambucha and left a bit dirty inside.

I bought some on CraigsList yesterday. Just happened to be browsing at the right time. Emailed 12 minutes after he posted, and I was the second person to email. 10 minutes later, he already had 5 more emails. I lucked out that the first guy flaked.

Yeesh. So much work just to get a keg.



Back on topic. Revvy's right, OP. That thing isn't going to carb as fast as bottles. It'll be a touch bubblier than still in a week, but not much more.

Guess it's just waiting now. I know it sounds like repeating myself but say if I wait until march and force carb, do you think it'd at least be caronated enough? Lol

That doesn't make sense. Force carbing is forcing it to carbonate quickly, usually using a keg and regulator on a CO2 tank. It's possible, though not really practical, in your situation... unless you want to buy a lot of cartridges.

You added sugar, so you're carbing naturally at this point.

Yeah I know i'm naturally carbing atm. But the site advised to do this at first then top off with cartridges when needed. I expect this beer to be gone in one night so hopefully it'll be nice and also carbed well
