Do your mini kegs fit in a fridge?

Well, it depends on the size of your fridge! Check the measurements above and note that the black handles do unscrew. 

Filling & Storing your Mini Keg

Is it ok to store my mini keg in the fridge with the tap and dispenser connected?

Yes, the tap can be kept on – it has a bolt to tighten the tap to stop it accidentally opening in the fridge.

Can I fill the mini keg then attach the dispenser in a few months time - or do I need to force carb straight away and keep under pressure?

You can do both. I personally store my beer without force carbonating or priming with sugar but there’s nothing stopping you from popping the tap on, force carbing and drinking straight away. But, obviously, waiting a few weeks will allow the beer to develop all those lovely flavours.

Using Soda Stream Bottles with your Mini Keg

Do any of your mini kegs work with a Soda Stream bottle?

If you want to use a Soda Stream bottle with your mini keg then go for one with a premium disconnect tap. We have both 5L mini kegs and 10L mini kegs you can choose from. Both come with a free Soda Stream adaptor kit.

I have a keg with a flow control tap. Can I use it with a Sodastream bottle instead of the CO2 bulbs?

Unfortunately our flow control taps aren’t suitable for use with a Soda Stream bottle. Our premium disconnect taps (5L mini kegs and 10L mini kegs ) are, however, great for converting to Soda Stream bottles – we include an adaptor with it.
