Just wondering if you could force carb in these. Looked at several of them and the ones with the 16g co2 bottle on the dispensing tap seem reasonable. But would that be enough to force carb?

sure it would with a low enough temp, pressure barrel pressures of 10-12psi will condition to a very high level if you can chill below 4c, how many bulbs it would take would be a case of trial n error but if you have the capacity to chill and keep topped up with co2 ? go for it ;)

And where is the co2 supply or connection???

might be a complete lemon?? i cant see any standard co2 bulbs fitting within the Ally bit standing off behind the tap, and no co2 connections ??

looks like it should work , but How?? :thumb:

perhaps the bulbs screw into the regulator bit ?? and im having an off day (again)

They screw into the regulator. You can also get caps with corny disconnect fittings.

they seem alot of cash for a very small capacity ! not much cheaper than a proper keg setup
ok if you want portability i guess but force carbing with those little bulbs wouldnt work out very cost effective
