This is my first go at kegging so I'm no expert. Mine used 1 cartridge carbonating (11PSI for 7 days) plus initial purging when it was filled and a couple of pints at serving pressure (2-3 PSI) which seemed reasonable to me as the beer will have absorbed co2. My second cartridge, this is a guess as I can't remember exactly how much I've had from it, 2-3 litres? and it's still ok and maintaining serving pressure. The Malt Miller has the cartridge for £8.75 for 10, however, you may find them cheaper elsewhere.the 10 litre looks great how long do the co2 cartridges last and how much are they(the cartridges) cheers lagerlad
Interesting feedback. We have been selling these for a while without any issues. I brew around 40L each month and store within the kegs, some periods for over a 3 months with no taste difference.I have a couple of similar mini kegs, with what looks to be the exact same ball-lock dispense cap. The dip tube that came with the dispense caps were a pvc tube that you cut to length. I was getting a peculiar taint to the taste of my beer when using these kegs, and discovered that it was the pvc tube that was doing it, so I discarded them (it was immediately apparent when I licked them). I'm still not happy, however, that I've been able to completely get rid of this odd taint that I'm still getting with replacement tube. A few days ago I transferred the last of some beer from a 50L keg to a 9L corny and a 4L mini-keg, and the beer definitely tastes different (tainted) from the mini keg.
I'm assuming that the set-up you're discussing here uses a similar arrangement for the dip tube, but wondered if anyone else is getting this odd taint that I am getting. Hopefully not, and someone might be able to point me in the direction of the type of tube used so that I might be able to get some. Perhaps there's a stainless steel option?
I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on this.
Fuzzy-felt states "I have a couple of similar mini kegs" I don't think he is referring to kegs supplied by yourselves. Certainly I have no issues with yours on the flavour front.Interesting feedback.
