I understand from the description that you can prime these which is great unless you do not plan on drinking the whole growler in one sitting.
Just a note on our growlers, once you do break the seal and pour a glass. You can cap the growlers back up until the next round. These growlers will hold the carbination for a atleast one week..with taking a glass or two off a day.

Stainless is painless, any thoughts of larger sizes like 14 gallons?

or maybe I should ask how much headspace does the ten have?

The ten gallon size is pretty tight on head space..however, we have been looking at making a 15 gallon size... However, this will create some difficulty in moving the "Cavern" ..the weight would be aprox. 130 lbs. and the cost would be around $250.

This.

If anyone implements this, I am all over it. Yes, you can replace the cap on a growler after pouring a pint, but there are 2 issues: air has to replace the volume once occupied by beer, which oxidizes the beer over the next day or two. And second, CO2 that is in solution in the beer migrates to the headspace to equilibrate the pressure in the vessel, which causes the beer to go flat, and gets worse with each subsequent uncapping.

A gas-in post would be an incredible add-on. After pouring, recap and pressurize, crack the cap once to purge out the CO2/air mix, then recap and pressurize once more - you're done.

Also would be a great way to quickly carb up a smaller volume of beer for testing/tasting purposes. If I had a nickel for how many times I’ve had someone over and they asked “Hey do you have any (Stout/IPA/insert brew here) on tap?” and I have to reply with, “No, not yet but it’s in the fermenter waiting for space in the kegerator”.

I’d have a dollar or so.

I have a carbonator cap but I don’t seem to use it for anything other than making root beer or other sodas.

awesome ideas and designs, just too pricey for my tastes.

its hard for me to justify a $185 carboy with a smaller opening than a $25 plastic 7 gallon bucket. I know the stainless carboy will last a lot longer, but i can get a lot of buckets out of $185 (7 and have change to be exact)

goodluck with the business, like i said this is an awesome idea and cool design. i would entertain the thought of a growler in the future, but between the bottles and the carboys, its a little above my budget.

Oh, I want that! Really bad! I'm either using glass (no carb cap) or plastic soda bottles (tacky). A stainless growler, with a "gas in" ball lock post is something I really need. I can't wait!

Any thoughts on if you will make this available to just buy a new cap with a gas post installed? Would like the option to have it either way. I was considering seeing if I could buy an extra cap to install my own gas post, but if it were available and reasonable.....
