So, I found a bunch of threads on this subject but I guess I have a couple specific questions for anyone out there with experience with this thing... would it be possible to put my home brew (after primary fermentation) into one of these Beer Machines http://www.beermachine.com/ and force carbonate? They have some that are refurbished for pretty cheap and I am thinking about picking one or 2 up to keep in my basement refrigerator. It seems like a cheaper/easier way to force carb and keep my home brew cold. Thanks!

I don't see why you couldn't. But honestly, why dont you just pick yourself up some 5g corny kegs? They are so cheap.

So, something like this would work? I can put it together and put it in my fridge?

Yep! But don't bother buying a new keg (unless you really want to spend a lot of extra money). You can get used kegs for $30 or under (just for the keg alone). Brand-new ones are usually around $100.

Yah but seems like fitting a beer machine in your fridge would be a lot easier...
