I might be able to help you out. I bought a party pig and used it a few times, but I just prefer the utility of the bottles. It works well, but I am limited on fridge space and now that I have 3-4 brews ready at a time, I can't fit a whole party pig anymore. I guess I never envisioned having that many brews ready at a time when I first started
Shipping to Texas shouldn't be too bad, it's not very heavy or big. You'd need to get your own pouches, I'm all out of those. I have the pump to activate the pouches as well if you'd like to get that too.
