4.6 / 5.05 ReviewsGreat keg system for small batches!This keg system is awesome. I love how it is small and compact enough to fit in my fridge. When brewing small batches, priming sugar needs to be much more exact - a little error in the amount of sugar or even the temp can mess up bottle carbonation drastically. This keg removes that guess work. It is absolutely great.
The only things I would have liked to have seen is some options when purchasing. I would have liked to upgrade the regulator to nitro, since that regulator can do both CO2 and nitro. In addition, the keg doesn't fit in my fridge with the snap tap attached, so it would have been nice to have the option to downgrade to the picnic tap.November 27, 2016So much fun!We are really enjoying our cannonball keg system. Just the right size for sharing homebrew. Also is great tor dispensing sangria. We call it the Sangria Machine". Only complaint is that it is impractical to use the little 74oz co2 cartridges that connect to the regulator. They don't last long. Would recommend purchasing a 5lb co2 tank for charging the keg.April 5, 2017Purchased
11 months agoHappy with my CannonBallTreated myself to Cannonball last month taking advantage of a 20% discount. Filled it up with some Barley Wine I had aging for the Christmas holiday. Hauled it from TX to IA in an igloo cooler (fit just great). Worked perfectly for force carbonation & serving! Highly recommended...sure beats bottling, even for a small batcthJanuary 5, 2018Purchased
1 month agoCompact and portableI've been using this system for a month and I'm very happy with it. A 5-gallon batch of beer will fill three of these mini kegs. Due to space restrictions, I keep one mini keg in my regular kitchen fridge, while the other two kegs sit outside at room temperature. I ended up buying a 5lb CO2 tank with a regular CO2 regulator that I use to carbonate the beer. The only time I use the mini regulator with 74g cartridge is when I want to take the mini keg to a friend's home.June 20, 2017Purchased
9 months agoGreat purchaseThis setup is perfect for neighborhood gatherings where the beer on hand tastes like it has been drank once. 14 pints makes sharing homebrew easy. This is well worth the money.February 5, 2017Purchased

Browse 13 questions Browse 13 questions and 28 answersCan you connect this to a large CO2 tank? Would you need a different regulator?BEST ANSWER: That will connect to any ball lock keg.How many uses does the co2 cartridge last for.? What the main different between this and the one with the big regulator?BEST ANSWER: One 74 gram CO2 cartridge should serve roughly a dozen cannonball kegs, provided you are not also using it for force carbonation, and provided you maintain a tight seal with the regulator during that time.With this system do you ferment as you normally would and then after a couple weeks move the beer to this device where it is carbonated and ready to drink rather than bottling with sugar tabs and conditioning in the bottles? Is that correct? Thanks!BEST ANSWER: You are right! I transfer the fermented beer directly to my sanitized cannonball keg and carbonate it with a charge of co2. Usually about 20 psi. It only takes me about two days to get the level of carbonation desired. When serving I then drop the co2 pressure to about 8 lbs. Awesome product! Assembles and disassembles quick. Best of all, it fits right in our fridge.Are the handles removable?BEST ANSWER: The handles are not removable but you need them for stacking these kegs on top of one another. The handles are "handy" for carrying the kegs around.Will the smaller 16g canisters thread in? for serving.. but would a 16g force carb?BEST ANSWER: The 16 g cylinders that I'm familiar will not work (the ones I know of don't have threads). The 74 g cylinders are good for carbonating 1 keg from scratch and driving the beer delivery, plus driving beer delivery for another keg. They are not enough to carbonate and drive 2 kegs.Can the keg be filled to only one gallon and successfully force carbonated?BEST ANSWER: I do a gallon and a half and it works fine.If I want to fill two kegs what would be the best process to store the second keg?BEST ANSWER: or can I add sugar and naturally condition in the 2nd keg and connect the co2 when I'm ready to serve?If I use this mini keg with the Co2 bottle to carbonate the beer, do I still need to use yeast after I brew it? I've only bottled beer.BEST ANSWER: If you use CO2, you do not need to add priming sugar or yeast. Cheers!Having trouble deciding between this version and the one where I provide and separate co2 tank. Is it cheaper or easier to carbonate with a refillable tank than to rely on these small chargers? Pros/Cons of the two types? Thanks very much!BEST ANSWER: A CO2 tank would be much cheaper than replacing the cartridges. That would be the biggest difference. Cheers!What is the keg made out of? Will it corrode?BEST ANSWER: Stainless Steel and it should not corrode.Can the regulator also be used for nitrogen?BEST ANSWER: This regulator is not capable of being used with a nitrogen cartridge.Can I upgrade to metal compression fitting? Are there replacement plastic fittings available?Does this come as the picture shows? with the Beer Faucet?
