- Some information regarding the "new" TAD (Home Draft Systems).
Here is an e-mail I recieved from the people at T-A-D aka SturmanBG The recommended way to clean the Tap would be to run warm water through the tubing, and on the outside of the tubing that has con
- TAP-A-DRAFT System
I have an almost new TAP-A-DRAFT system with 3 bottles, extra permanent caps, the tap/valve, and 4 co2 cartridges. $45 plus shipping. This is the one with the brown bottles, not the blue, and it has t

Pros: Reusable, Easy to clean, Portable, Fun
Cons: Cartridges can be pricey and you need at least one to push beer, 2 if force carbing.
Recommended? YesI love my Tap-A-Draft. I don't have room in my compact urban rental for my brewing equipment and a separate fridge dedicated to kegs. The Tap-A-Draft makes it easy for me to have a cold 18 or so beers that I don't have to decant for my guests when I am worried about sediment. Naturally carbonating it in plastic helps to get more carbonation when needed. I fill up one of these plastic jugs every time I bottle to cut down on time filling and cleaning. Could lose carbonation if not kept chilled or left 'tapped' for longer than a party or weekend.
Pros: reusable, less cleaning time,no more cases of bottles taking up space, portable and can have up to three different beers on tap on just one shelf in the fridge
Cons: cartridges are hard to find and cost about $15 for 6 with shipping.
Recommended? YesI have had my Tap-a-draft for about 6 months and it's one of the best products I have purchased. It brought the joy back into brewing and made bottling day a pleasure. It takes only about half an hour to clean and bottle huge time saver. I was able to get rid of cases of bottles just taking up space in the basement
It's very portable I take it with me to family parties and to campfire with freinds.
I'm so proud of my TAP-A-Draft set up I have pictures in my gallery

Pros: 3 "kegs" going at once
Cons: only one tap
Recommended? Yesthis would be an excellent product if it had more than one tap included. I have 2 taps going right now. One was from a miller lite home draft system. But so far, very happy with the TAD.
Pros: Easy to use. 3 6l bottles takes care of most of a 5 gal batch. Compact Cost effective
Cons: You will want more than one cap. CO2 cartridges are not cheap. Will want to talk SWMBO into a full Kegging system.
Recommended? YesI left brewing because of bottling - I got back into brewing once I found the Tap a Draft System. I always wanted to keg but didn't have the room or the funds to go to a full corny system.
With the TAD system it fits on the shelve in our extra fridge and 3 6l bottles takes care of most of a standard batch of beer.
I now have 12 6l bottles and only wish I had more with another tap.
The only thing to watch is the CO2 cartridges - I have bought some that say Soda carteridges and they don't fit as well and leak.
