I spend too much time in coffee shops.
I was looking at the insulated airpots many coffee shops use to dispense drip coffee, like this one:
I don't have the resources for home kegging yet, but I would like a solution for parties and gatherings. The pots hold about 2.2 liters, so I was thinking, could I bottle in 2L bottles, naturally carbonate, then pour the beer into the airpot for serving. I'm assuming contents would be consumed within 2 hours, so there wouldn't be a risk of oxidation of the beer. I'm not proposing this as a long-term storage solution.
Here are the advantages I see:
--The pot is very well insulated. It keeps hot coffee hot for several hours, so I assume it could do the same for cold beverages.
--The measurements are about perfect: 2.2 liters allows just a bit of air room.
--The price is right: about 30 bucks for a new one, under 5 bucks for a used one.
--Very easy to clean.
Any thoughts? Has anyone tried this method?
