Don't have any experience but from what i hear they are pretty handy if you don't want to invest in a full kegging setup. You have to keep buying the pressure bags or modify it yourself to use the small CO2 tanks.

Yeah, they're good and work fine. There's also a half-dozen or more threads on them if you look at similar threads or do a search.

I used one for a while till I got the keg setup together. Only problems I had were getting it pressurized and getting the bag out. Took up too much room in the fridge a few times, but just drank it quicker.

An old thread but rather than posting a new one I thought I'd try here first.

How long does beer last in a party pig (and no "until I've drunk it" responses please!)

Also, does it take the same time to condition as in bottles?
