Yes, and IIRC, they're using it for Miller Light as well.

Definitely more like a tap-a-draft than a party pig.

From Tap-a-Draft's FB page:

Here's another article about our licensed Tap-A-Draft technology being used in a single-use form. If it's not already, you should be able to find it in your area soon.

You are definitely right. I guess the reason I called it a Party Pig was because of the original thread http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/coor...ty-pig-127302/ . It just got in my head that way and I couldn't get it out.

Please feel free to post here. I'm interested to see what others do with it. In one of the threads I linked I believe someone was able to successfully force carb some water (or maybe it was Apfelwein).
How is this working out for you so far?

So far so good, but I still have another week and a half before I tap the thing. It's still naturally carbing up, no leaks of either beer or CO2. I went to my LHBS and bought a 16g CO2 cartridge, so I'm just waiting for the beer to mature now. Once it does I will toss it in the fridge for at least 24 hours, take it out and add the new CO2 to it and pour my first beer from it on video. I'll post it on here when it's done.

I'd love to make a stout, carb naturally, then get some of the nitogen cartridges and try that out for dispensing.

I suggest getting a camera stand.

Great videos... close to unwatchable. Like Blair Witch of How To.

This is awesome! As someone who is ready to go to kegging but can't afford it yet, this is perfect. And even though it's not the best beer in the world, I could pretty much knock one of those Coors Light jobs out in about a day. It was 107 actual temp here yesterday and I need to mow the yard!!! Thanks for the video. Keep them coming.
