You can get the bungs from a load of places. Also the new bungs are very easy to remove and use again. I think you will find a youtube vid demonstrating this. As an aside, do not clean with boiling water, but hot water is fine.

Just learned the hard way that the little plastic plugs on the grey bungs need to go in upside down when not using a party star tap...... inside of the brew fridge now needs cleaned!!!

Default Easy Keg 5L

I've chucked 3 of these out because they rusted inside round the seam where it joins and tainted the beer. May have overcarbed them but am wary about getting them again.

Had 2 kegs left with a stout in them. Just put the party star on one of them, tastes of rust. Either I'm not treating them right or they're not worth it.

Lucky I bought 60 bottles recently

The insides can rust if the plastic lining is damaged. It’s only happened to me once *touch wood*!

Well I was hoping I'd damaged it in some way. I'll buy a couple more and give them another go. Love having the party star tap and a keg in my fridge so hopefully it works out.
