How many 16 gm bulbs does it take to push a cornie of carbonated beer? I'm thinking of picking up one of the Genuine innovations chargers to simplify bringing a cornie to a party. Semms like one of these would probably worth outlay to avoid potentially damaging regulators, etc. in transport/use.

Thanks for the feedback.

We usually go through 1 or 2 twelve gram chargers on several kegs during a long evening party. You just want to give it enough of a shot to push the beer.

We've always naturally carbed our beer so I don't know if your mileage will be different if you force carb.

thanks. wow....if I could get more than 1 keg pushed per cartridge, that'd be sweet. i was thinking it'd take more than 1 per keg.

definitely seems a worthwhile investment for kegs on the go, then.

I guess I should add that it really depends on how much your friends drink. Always take more than you think you need.

If your friends get liberal with the gas, they can run out a lot quicker. Just take extra along just in case.
