Default Can I convert this to a mini-Keg?

any ideas on how to utilize this 3gal container with spigot (and pressurized.)... Wonder if you could put a CO2 value in the lid and use it as a mini keg for maybe a small batch?

Anyone ever see one of these and any ideas?

I’m not sure about the sizes but maybe you could fit a mini (2gal) keg inside it and figure out how to serve it that way… with the spigot that’s already there? With some room to spare you could also fill with dry ice to keep the 2gal cold? I’m so fascinated by these odd ‘capsules’ and, one day, will collect these oddities… I’m gonna!

Fermentor for small batches?

That'd be a really small batch.


At this point, I am thinking it may be a 3gal "growler" for going to a party.
