Default Soda Siphon as Mini Keg???

Could I use a soda siphon bottle and CO2 charger to create my own little mini keg?? any reason why that wouldn't work?

You mean like one of these: http://www.kegworks.com/product.php?...cat=310&page=1 ?

Don;t see why not, but it's going to be a pretty expensive solution if you plan on using it a lot.

That's a really expensive 2 liter keg.

Default yeah i didnt think of that

i didnt realize that you need to change the charger so often. I just thought it would be a cool novelty. i think I'll just stick with bottles for now. thanks.

You could try making one of these too

Cheap 3L Keg

I haven't made one yet, but someone else on this forum posted this link once. Looks good and pretty cheap too.

I think there is a difference to the sixe of the co2 bubbles given the time it's able to absorb. If that makes sense.

A quick for carb gives big bubbles that disperce quickly.
I naturaly prime in kegs and there are only tiny bubles that don't go any where fast.
