From what I've seen of it, no. The CO2 canister is inside.

The other "gravity" tap kegs are...it has the key on top that you open up and a built-in tap. I have about 15 of them.

Priming is only 1 tablespoon.

According to this thread I do not think so.

I've seen them on-line and some beers come in them.

I got all of my minikegs from Germany when I brought them back with me.

If you find them you would not have to invest in a tap since it's built-in. If there is not a built-in tap (red plastic tap at the bottom of the keg) then you would need to buy one.

Are there certain beers that come in gravity tap kegs? I'd like to try it out with some homebrew. Pennsylvania makes it so difficult to buy anything other than a case of bottles.
