Personally I will still be using mine. It seems from reading the article that all these accidents happened when cleaning under pressure. On a home brew scale it seems more likely to screw the top off to clean & sanitize than to try to clean on place under pressure.

These things look great! Wish I could find a few. The inner vessel is lightweight like a soda bottle w/ a sanke fitting, the outer shell looks like an HDPE bucket. Gotta search a few of these out.

I wasn't meaning to discourage the use. Just wanted to point out that you should expect these to be as tough as a SS sanke. One of those noted that it burst at approx 30psi = a lot of people force carb at that pressure. I would expect that that failure was due to temperature and pressure but I thought it should be said that don't expect them to have the same 100psi design pressure that conry kegs have.

The pubkeg website says minumum order quantity is 48 kegs at $25 each. So 1200 bucks to get a batch of these things.

I was hoping to get a few used or "pre-owned" for free, as they are disposable or recyclable as the PC term goes.

The bar I work at said they didn't pay any deposit and the distributor said not to return them.
