I picked up a brewdemon conical for the occasional small batch and it works well. Has a conical base for the yeast grub to settle out and a valve at the bottom. Small and easy for small batches.

It would be better if you still used their pressure pouches, as the idea is for these to fill the head space when dispensing and push out the beer. Without it it may still work but won't stay carbed...
