Excelent how to. Have been thinking of getting some mini kegs for some time now. This has made my mind up for me.

Love these four posts. I'm a big mini keg fan. I find them cheap at booths 15 full of choice beer or 15 quid for hobgoblin from supetmarkets etc. I've got about 10 kegs waiting for me to start brewing something and was looking for an expert to question. Thanks again.

Bargin indeed, those taps are worth £45gbp alone. That squiggly one looks like you can use the keg on its side, never seen one like that before. It appears to be the same housing as my party star though and only the delivery pipe is different. The other one is the older version I think.
Nice one

The difference is your cant use your internal tap with the grey bung. ( well you could, you'd just have to push the tapping grommet into the keg) but their meant to be tapped into.
