Hello is it possible to connect a normal size C02 bottle to a Dark Farm keg?, I know I can buy a Sodastream adapter but I want to use a big C02 bottle.

Yes it is - I have one of the Kegland 10L minikegs that I use alongside my kegerator.

The lids on the Dark Farm ones have the tap and regulator built in don’t they? You’ll need to buy a ball lock lid (MiniKeg Ball lock Lid) as opposed to the one that comes with it - you’ll also need either a keg mounted tap or party tap, and a “proper” CO2 regulator.

Question for Dark Farm keg users - how do you find the fixed tap type head? Is it easy to transport the keg with this attached? It looks quite vulnerable and I guess there's no way of removing the tap for transportation? [photo below of the type I'm referring to]

Follow on question - how do you fill the keg with the tap head? Do you need one of the ball lock heads to fill the keg then swap over to the tap head after filling?
