Hello beer patriots

I'm considering this kit and was hoping he anyone else has this and what the advantages or disadvantages were
It's the best price ive seen considering the party tap can be around fifty quid on its own
One question I wanted to ask was how long do the canisters last approximately?

Mini Keg Starter Kit. Tired of filling bottles or planning to have a party then choose mini keg! Put your beer in the 5 litre metal keg, add 3g of sugar/liter and let the beer ferment in a warm place. Then place the keg in a cool environment. After just a few days, you can tap your beer for consumption. The CO2 pressure gives your beer a beautiful head. * Content: 3 mini kegs 5 liter (reusable), beer tap, 10 CO2 cartridges 16g and with clear instructions.

I have moved your thread to the brewing equipment discussion forum as it's more likely to get an answer here, your original thread title "Brewferm starter kit review" also looks like you are reviewing this rather than asking a question about it probably why you haven't got an answer. ;)

It also looks like he’s talking about a beer kit rather than the Party Star Deluxe Tap starter kit.

There’s plenty of information about the Part Star Deluxe Tap on this thread https://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/threads/easy-keg-5l.57568/. I have a PSD but don’t use it very often because I have a unit that chills and dispenses my mini kegs.

I'll confess to eyeing them up a few times as an alternative to bottles.

What put me off them though is that I simply can't fit a 5 litre keg into our fridge, and prefer my beer a little on the cool side.

Tons of info and peoples experiences on the thread mickdundee linked to. But my short answer would be, yes it’s a very nice setup to use if it suits your consumption habits. I don’t use mine loads as I’m the only beer drinker in the house and I like to vary styles, so bottles suit me better. But for visitors or parties, brilliant. I can, with a bit of wiggling, get mine into the fridge and the tap in which helps.

I have one. Bought from Leyland for a similar price, really good piece of kit. The kegs are better suited to less carbonated beer styles. Canisters usually last about 3 kegs
