Beautiful products. I assume the six pack bottles can be capped "normally" like a glass bottle?

Also, I like the idea of the ball gas in on the growler.

Another question, if you added a dip tube, could the gas in post also serve as a liquid out post. My thought is you could bring it to a party pressurized, and also bring a picnic tap attached to a gray gas in attachment (I *believe* the gas and liquid on ball corney kegs are slightly different, at least they seem to be as the gas tap is next to impossible to remove when I accidently attched it to the wrong side).

Yes, our bottles use the same crown cap style, as the breakable glass bottles.

I have three 1 gallon kegs. I'm bringing one of them over to my sister/mother's place for xmas eve and day drinking. While not cheap, the things are damned convenient. No need to worry about loss of carbonation, pouring, etc... If DW could come up with something that uses standard ball lock posts, I'm sure a LOT of people would use them. Of course it should be safe up to at least 45psi.

Nice stuff, but can I make one nitpicky suggestion? Personally there's nothing more annoying than shopping online and all there is are tiny, thumbnail-sized images. Get some larger high resolution pics of your products on that site. The more angles the better, especially when you have products that are this good looking, you have to show them off. I think companies really underestimate the value of this simple strategy.

So I'm NOT the only one that wants to see larger images of the products, after all. It would also be nice to either make the text more dynamically sized (for people with displays that offer more than 1024x800 resolutions) or just a bit larger. It's difficult to read what's on there, unless I zoom the browser window above 130%. I don't have to do that with any other sites (using the 100%/default zoom level).

IMO, product has potential, but site could use a bit of work (nothing major mind you). Interested to see how things develop.

Personally, I really like the stainless steel carboys. I'm a newbie still who hasn't invested in glass carboys yet so it wouldn't bother me to spend the extra coin on stainless. Quite a bargain compared to a conical. I will agree with the above posters who mentioned additional pictures from various views. All in all, looks to be a great product. Subscribed.

Got the mini-keg growler, freaking cool. Functional and fashionable.

I'd rather have a SS growler with a way to mount a paint ball CO2 cartridge, then a trigger-style tap. Schweet.

+1 to the above. A one gallon size with CO2 cartridge and a trigger tap would be something I would buy several of.
