4.0 / 5.05 ReviewsGreat but pricyI've got two of these at this point and they are great! Well made and quality ... They work great for splitting up a batch into a keg and the rest bottles or say two small batches tweaking or adding to one or the other but to be selling them at the same price as a 5 gallon one.. Shouldn't it be half the price since it's half the size?_x000D_Great but pricySeptember 23, 20112.5 gallon kegsThis is an ideal size for a 3 gallon batch of beer. they are a little pricey comparied to the 5 gallon keg. Very compact size for any freezer /refeg/ ice chest. If you think one won't fit your partying needs, bring two kegsMay 30, 2012wow, expensive but nice....Unfortunately these little kegs are super expensive because they are really nice to have around. I'm assuming it's because there is no real market for them outside of the homebrewing world so they are market up pretty high. Whatever the reason, there is no doubt that they are handy to have around. I like doing small test batches BIAB on the stovetop so these fit my brewing perfectly without wasting CO2 by filling up half a 5 gallon keg. They seem to be the same quality of the bigger ones, just smaller and cuter. Could also be used to keg half a batch and bottle the rest if doing a full five gallons.December 3, 2012Embrace the small guysThese mini kegs are perfect for bringing beer to a party, keep in your normal fridge, or sending some home with a buddy. Embrace the small guys, Bigger is not always better!March 14, 2013DalitsoAnyone who claims they brew at home to save money lies. Thats not why we brew. We brew beuscae we like good beer And we like using our hands And beuscae we like good beer too!!Even if it cost twice as much to brew 5 gallons than it did to buy 5 gallons, I would still brew. Probably not 3 times a month, but I would still brew at home.Cloning 5 gallons of tecate? Not saving any money.Cloning 5 gallons of 90 Minute IPA? Maybe.Solution: Brew more than 5 gallons at a time. :)My 2 cents.July 20, 2012
