Hey guys,

Just filmed a video on how to use the Coors Light or Miller Home Draft System for kegging your homebrew. Check it out and let me know what you think. It will be posted on my blog tomorrow or Thursday.

Nice video.
16g CO2 carts need to be food safe. The ones you mention for bike tires, air soft, etc. can actually have lubricant inside them that can spray into your beer.

Damn, forgot to add that. I will add it when I do the writeup on my blog.

Your videos were really my inspiration, by the way. I put them together in one quick video. Thanks for the ideas!

Thanks man! Also, I added a note to the video description.

NOTE: One point I forgot to add in the video was that the CO2 cartidges you purchase must be food grade, and can not contain any sort of lubricant. If in doubt, contact the manufacturer of your CO2 cartidges and they will be able to advise you.

Think you could use NO2 carts in it for the Guiness effect?

I'm not sure. I know you can do it with the Tap-A-Draft system, but you have to use one CO2 and one NO2 cartridge. I would think you would have to put a CO2 cartridge in this first, let the beer absorb the CO2, then replace it with an NO2 cartridge for dispensing.

Makes sense. I'm thinking about giving this a try as I don't have the $$ to set up a kegging system at this point and my LHBS carries food grade cartridges Got a huge pale ale going now, planning RIS for the yeast cake next weekend but maybe a stout after that.

This should work great. If you want to be able to keg more beer, check out the Tap-A-Draft system, it allows you to keg 4.5 gallons with the number of bottles included.
