Default Smallish beer cask

Does anyone have a good source for small plastic beer casks in the US? I want to try cask conditioning an English Ale, but can't drink fast enough to drain 5-10 gallons once it's tapped. Looking for something in the 1-2.5 gallon range.

Either that, or more friends.....

Northern brewer has a 1psi secondary regulator that will replace the hard spiel on your cask and keep oxygen from getting in. Worth looking into, and you wouldn't need to change your brewing process or batch size just for "real ale" serving techniques.

Have you looked into 5 liter mini kegs? We have a great DIY beer engine thread that iirc uses them here.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

Just get a regular 5 gal cask and use a breather.
