Default Options for tailgating....

I'm preparing for the upcoming football season and am trying to figure out the best way to get my cider from home to parking lot. I saw a Tap System w/ platic bottles that runs off of small co2 cartridges. will that be ok? or should I just stick w/ bottles?

check out some of the equipment how to's up in the beer section. What most people have worked on is a way to tap kegs on the go. I guess the questions that would need to be answered are if you are set up for kegging, and how big do you want to go?

Primary: blueberry apple cider
Secondary: panty dropper cranberry apple cider
bottled: I should probably get some of those...
on deck: future brews suspended for the moment :(...

Check out this thread. The system can also be made to use 12 gram CO2 cartridges.

One brand name is Tap a draft. I believe they use 3L or 6L bottles.
