The crappy tire burner does hold a keggle. The bottom rim of the keg goes on the outside of the supports, which then fit nicely against the bottom of the keg - it kind of gets wedged in place. I've...

None. When I used to use plastic I'd squeeze the bottle while putting the cap on so the beer was right up to the rim. The bottle expands as the beer carbonates, so you can even tell by the firmness...

They're not designed to hold pressure, so there's a risk they'll break. I used growlers several times with no problems before I knew better - then one of my buddies picked up a growler he'd had...

I've been confused by the same thing. I started brewing with Coopers (and other) kits, so thought that 5 gallons meant 23 litres. Then I went and ordered a couple of kits from Midwest, didn't...
