Mini Kegs are great because more kegs = fewer bottles! These kegs work with the Party Star Deluxe Tap System but can be naturally carbonated, as well. Compact, portable and easier than bottling!


Please note: These kegs make a long journey from Germany and as a result, many arrive with small dents. These are of no cause for concern and do not affect the functionality in any way. Thanks for your understanding!

Mini Kegs are great because more kegs = fewer bottles! These kegs work with the Party Star Deluxe Tap System to bring draft beer to a compact, portable system. You will also need to order an additional bung unless you already have one.

Great way to carry a few beers around. Make sure to order the bung. For some reason thus hasn't worked for force carbonation but that may be just my inexperience.

Good for small sessions
I frequently want to serve small groups and don't want to bring a while kegs and taps. This is a good size and you can use gravity to get the beer out, though it's a little slow.

Good for tail gaiting
I put on in the car, in a tub of ice, and use a cheap portable tap I bought from Mid west a while back, and have no worries about my equipment getting banged up.

An easy way to bring beer around
These mini kegs make it very easy to bring some beer over and not have to carry heavy kegs and lots of equipment. If the system was a little more robust it would be 5 stars.

Good for football tailgaiting
The kegs are good for taking beer in bulk to a football game when you don't want to bring an entire keg. They also let you get the benefit of kegging without the large investment. Eventually these kegs burst so you need to replace them every so often.

forget the taps
These are great for kegging beer when you don't want to commit to opening a larger portion. This is especially important for those who like real ale. However, purists will not want to pump CO2 into the keg for dispensing either. For years I tried all the minikeg taps and they all suck. But then I found that gravity dispensing from the spout at the bottom of the keg actually works pretty well. It is a small enough opening to get a nice sparkler type effect and put a head on the beer, and no need for CO2 at all. It loses a little as the keg gets low and there is less pressure, but all in all, a pretty good system for real ale enthusiasts. _x000D__x000D_They do have limited use. I had a few last year that split at the seams and leaked out all the beer, but they had been used a bunch of times. I got some new ones and will keep track of the number of uses on them.

Perfect for tailgaiting
I use these mini-kegs for taking a stock of beer to a tailgate or softball games when glass bottles don't make sense._x000D__x000D_Keep them clean and treat them gently and you'll get 8-10 uses out of them. I don't bother with lubing the plugs, a simple soak in warm water will allow them to fit easily._x000D__x000D_These can sometimes be found for around $20 at your local package place full of swill.

how many gallons?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are sold as 5 liters, or 1.3 gallons.
What is the volume and pressure rating?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not know but I think it would be the same as a bottle of beer would have

Can it be used to hold overflow of antifreeze in a truck?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I never used it for that, but it is a very sturdy, high quality tank so I would think it could be re-purposed for that. Personally...I think it's best to put beer in. lol
What is the easiest way to clean and dry these?
Ryan Bender on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Clean promptly after emptying, I flush thoroughly with water. Then rinse 2-3 minutes with sanitizer - one step cleaner for example. Shake all possible water out and let dry and store upside down. Rinse again with sanitizer before refilling.
Does it come with the two piece bung?

Will this work in the SPT Mini Kegerator?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The SPT unit has an adapter to use standard, non-pressurized kegs. Looks the same as the one I use in my Edgestar mini kegerator. Make sure you also buy the reusable rubber bungs with your mini kegs.
I have an edge star minikegerator. will this work with that system as an unpressurized keg?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would assume that it would just be sure to use 5 oz of priming sugar. The only drawback that I see would be when dispensing the beer you are allowing air into the keg .
Is this made of Stainless Steel?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, they are aluminum. Made in Germany. They hold up pretty well for a couple uses. I have had some split at the seams after a half dozen or so uses. So, now I am careful about using new ones especially for something like an oktoberfest that will be in there a while.
What's it made of? Will they rust?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
I'm a little confused over the size, in an earlier question you mention the height as 9" but in the Party Star description it says they are 14", can you clarify for me.
P A on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry for the confusion. The actual dimensions for these are 6.5" in diameter. 9-11/16" tall.
I'm a little unsure about priming these. Do I use the same amount of corn sugar/water solution that I would use for bottling (4 oz sugar/2 cups water)? If not, what is your recommendation for priming procedure? Thanks in advance.
Rick L on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That would be far too much. Just add one level tablespoon of corn sugar to each mini keg. Then fill to about 1" from the top of the keg. Seal with a bung and you're good to go.
Does anyone know if these kegs can be used with the Avanti 1.7 cu ft portable party pub beer dispenser. It suppose to be able to hold two mini kegs and dispense from one.
David S on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It looks like it would work, according to the info I can find. If you look at the Avanti fridge on Amazon, the mini-keg and gray rubber bung are listed as "frequently bought toether", so I'm thinking that they are indeed compatible. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Can you carbonate in these, since there is a spout on the side?
T Y on Jan 29, 2016
Is there a opening on the bottom
S O on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is an opening on the top for the bung. Also there is an opening on the side which is a spout if you wish to use it. You're not required to use a spot on the side you may use a Fossett through your bong. However there is no hole on the bottom.
Is this a 5 liter keg?
D S on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That's correct. The volume is 5 liters.
What's the capacity of the keg?
J H on Nov 27, 2015

The mini-keg holds 5 liters.
