I followed the link, saw the pics of the "cutaway", but where are you seeing the info about the "inner bottle being replaceable"?

I prolly' overlooked it..........

The Kegworks site doesn't actually make a claim that the liners will be available separately...

Cheers!

It is listed as $71.75 on the website...

edit: Nevermind it's listed in Canadian dollars for me.

I looked into these things before. The company that produces them was only selling in large quantities, mostly to breweries. The liners were available.

The price in the link (that I got in an email from kegworks) in the first post has them at 59.99.

I really don't give a crap if any of you guys buy these things or not.

As I said before, buy them it you want. Don't buy them if you want. For whatever reasons you want.

I just wanted to point out that they were available now without having to buy a pallet of them from the company that makes them.

They are not a corny keg. They are a different size. They are made of plastic. They use a sankey coupler, not ball lock or pin lock connectors.

There would be pros and cons to using them.

IF I was just getting into kegging, I would seriously consider using these. That would be my choice. You would be free to choose otherwise. It would not make my choice or anyone else's choice to use these or not use these wrong

From the responses in this thread you would think that I was suggesting that we make homebrew kegs from the skin of sacrificed virgins...

I don't know. Seems like a pretty typical thread to me.

Why are you getting upset, this is a discussion board after all?

Someone posted a study on plastic, you posted a sarcastic song about cancer.

Not upset, just shaking my head.

I could have posted about six different links disputing the chemical leaching claim and/or danger of a trace amount of antimony the same as I could for every aluminum causes Alzheimer's post that comes up. I chose to counter it with humor. Sorry if you didn't like it.

As I said, if you don't want to buy the things don't, but I'm pretty sure that you can't find cornies for $35 very often, the pet bottles won't kill you with chemicals or explode and they probably won't be the cause of the zombie apocalypse.

i have put off getting into kegging forever and this looks like a good route to me. it's almost like the sankey system was designed for beer and not mixing syrup with water.
