  • Mood:


Ok, so I'm headed to a music festival in just over 2 weeks.
I was going to take some of my backstock of homebrew, but apparently they're pretty anal about not bringing glass onto the grounds, as it's a horse pasture the rest of the year and horses + glass bottles = bad.
I haven't kegged before, but I think that the only way I'm going to get a beer to this event is to do some form of CO2 kegging.
Thus, this plea for advice.

Corny kegs are too big for me to deal with, so I need an alternate option.
Two options I can see, would like some advice. They're both about the same price for a full setup, so that's not much of an issue.

4x 5L. party kegs: link
small quantites good for general kegging, don't have to drink a whole damn batch in 1-2 goes. cons?

2x 2.25gal party pigs: link
Need to be primed with sugar, not sure if you can CO2 carbonate. Can someone shed some light on this? If this is the case, my only option is the party kegs.

I need a recipe that'll be ready to drink in about 2 weeks and 2 days.
