Anyone every use one? Own one? I think I may want to get a couple... I have no room for a 5 gallon keg and CO2 tank etc... this would be a great way to have kegs, and not have to buy ANOTHER (3rd) refrigerator!

I have two of those puppies and two of the 2.5 gallon units. They come in handy for parties. It looks like they are out of the reconditioned units though.

Keep your eyes peeled on eBay, and be prepared to drop at least $70 on a small keg (very high demand, very low supply). The pisser is that you really want to have TWO small kegs, so that you don't have either keep bottle half the batch or cut back to three-gallon batches.

That's exactly why I use my 3 gallon kegs for Apfelwein. I bottle two gallons for gifts and dinner parties. I keg the remainder to guzzle at home.

I have two 2.5 gal ones. I use them More than my three 5 gal. ones. I actually prefer to keg half a batch, and bottle the rest. I like to have BBQ's and gatherings where I have several styles on hand in bottles- people dig it. (My fridge can only hold So many kegs.)

I just picked one up on ebay yesterday for $65 (with stupid $20 flat rate shipping). There was not much competition when it came down to the last minute.
