Please note: These kegs make a long journey from Germany and as 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!This system is perfect for the person who doesn't want to dedicate a refrigerator to a full size keg system. Simply prime your beer with 3 oz. of priming sugar, transfer into the mini keg, and in 2 -3 weeks you are ready to drink. Four 5L mini kegs is all you need for one batch of beer. You use 16 gm. CO2 cartridges to dispense the beer, but they cannot be used to carbonate the beer. Because you are using CO2, a keg will stay fresh for up to 5 - 6 weeks. You will use 1 CO2 cartridge per keg. Each mini keg will last for 6 - 8 uses before needing to be replaced.
The Party Star Deluxe Tap System Includes:
- Party Star Deluxe Tapper
- 4- 1.33 gallon mini kegs
- 4- reusable rubber bungs
- And 6 - 16 gram CO2 cartridges (1 per keg use).

3.5 / 5.031 ReviewsThis system is really greatI love this mini kegging system. I use it around my pool in Arizona. It's 105?��F outside but the beer is cold. The system is very portable and I can't wait until football and tailgating. To bad Kurt Warner retired. I keep all the kegs on ice in a cooler and when I want a beer I just pull the tapped one out fill my glass and put it back. _x000D__x000D_The only problem I can see with it is getting the water to drain completely out after cleaning. _x000D__x000D_I really love it and am going to order more kegs so I can keep up with the football season.June 12, 2010It leaksI bought this system and it leaks. Total garbage. You can still use the kegs however. Just buy the vented bungs and use the natural carbonation to dispense the beer. A lot easier, much less hassle. There's really no need to use co2 to dispense 5 liters of beer. Just let gravity do the work and save your beer from ruine.June 19, 2013Works great for homebrewJust finished "tapping" my first keg of Homebrew. Worked great! IT was a little foamy at first, but is settling down. I have 6 of these Kegs, and may buy a few more.May 3, 2014Not BadThis is a cool system and saves time and space. The tap works but you have to mess with it to make it pour properly. The seal is not best and leaks out and you need to adjust the value so it does not get foamy. I found out that if you turn value on and off it pours pretty good, overall if you can solve the air leaks it will be a bad ass mini system. I'm thinking of using it with mini keg systems I seen on amazon..Happy brewing playas_x000D__x000D_BrdApril 4, 2013They have been better than Corny Kegs!I received the Party Star Deluxe system for Christmas....and it has been all sorts of awesome!_x000D__x000D_I have not had success with Corny Kegs....even after extensive repair sessions, I always seem to have a leak and an empty 20lb cylinder of C02...so I went exclusively to bottles_x000D__x000D_While I enjoyed my bottled beer, I always wondered what they would taste like on draft...._x000D__x000D_I had a Chocolate Milk Stout and a Heffe in secondary and probably 1/2 the bottles needed to package both batches....so I kegged 1/2 of each batch in the Mini Kegs (two kegs of stout....two kegs of heffe...the rest in bottles)_x000D__x000D_In just about three weeks I busted out the Keg of Stout....it was so awesome....family and friends couldn't get enough....the Keg was killed! Same goes for the Heffe_x000D__x000D_You have to be cognizant of the gray Rubber bungs that come in a separate bag with the package...those suckers are really what keeps your home brew fresh....once you put the bung in....don't pull it out until the beer is gone...._x000D__x000D_The party star tap slides right into the bung and creates a seal...._x000D__x000D__x000D__x000D_February 10, 2011The BEST kegging system ever!If you want to have more than one kind of beer in your refrigerator at one time, this is THE way to go. Most other kegs take up all the space in your refrigerator. these mini kegs only take up one shelf! If you want to take a keg to a party they are really convenient with the small CO2 tap. When you consider the cost of a 5 gallon keg and a regular size CO2 tank and all, they are the best deal. I have filled some of my mini kegs over 6 times and have not had a problem.September 14, 2011Great systemThis system is wonderful, I love having fresh homebrew on tap in my fridge. I don't know what's going on with the other reviews, but my kegs keep the seal for weeks! The only down side is the co2 cartridges die out after about 1 or 2 weeks, so you need to drink these pretty fast (or just replace the co2 cartridge).September 20, 2011Better than beforeI once owned the same kind of CO2 assisted tap for 5L kegs back in the 90's and I loved it. Today's unit is superior in several ways. First the overall construction is more substantial, with better and denser materiel, should significantly increase the life of the tap. Also the upgrade from 12 gram powerlets to 16 gram means better performance over several uses. Finally - the ability to turn the gas flow down to completely off allows you to switch the tap out to a new keg while maintaining the remains of the unused CO2 gas for the next can.
Be sure to get some lube to treat the dip tube and gaskets and prolong their service lives.
Cons: Well the 16 gram powerlets are a bit hard to find and somewhat more expensive, but you can find ways around this with some internet searching. (one guy has found a way to use the more common 12 gram cylinders!)
Overall for me it is a superior way to Keg and Serve my homebrew without going all in on a commercial keg setup.

2 months agoVery sweet!Gets the job doen and totally saves my fridge some space!!October 25, 2012Very CoolThis thing is great. It makes bottling day easy. It has a certain cool factor that can't be described very well until you see it. Consider that they are way more portable than a kegging system too.June 13, 2013

Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 17 answersCan I just add my favorite beer to the keg and dispense using CO2? will it maintain carbonation for a day ?BEST ANSWER: Interesting idea. I’ve never tried that, but I imagine that would work. Keeping in mind that the CO2 cartridge is used to keep the beer under pressure not to carbonate it, so in theory what you are suggesting should work.What is the best method for cleaning party star tap?BEST ANSWER: To clean the tap itself, I run it under hot water and hold the tap open so clean water flows through it. Disassemble it and then I soak the parts in PBW for an hour, rinse. Air dry. The kegs, I fill and rinse with warm water, Then fill with water and appropriate amount of PBW, let sit for an hour, rinse and air dry for a few days upside down. Do this when your beer is gone, don't let it sit and dry out with beer residue in kegHow much priming sugar is used to carbonate?BEST ANSWER: just batch primeThe description says these kegs will need to be replaced after 6-8 uses. Do you mean the seals need to be replaced or the whole keg?
keithBEST ANSWER: Keith,
The kegs do need to be replaced not just the seals. Thanks!How tall is a keg with the tap installed on it? Can I store it on its side in the fridge and pull it out/upright to dispense without problems?BEST ANSWER: It'd be about 14-15 inches tall with the tap in place. You'd want to store it upright, that way the sediment will be on the bottom, and it would not get swirled into the beer when moving it around. It would be best always stored upright when full of beer!
