I have a plastic ball keg (brand forgotten) which I have used for
several years. I have had beer stay fresh (or at least great tasting)
for over 3 months (which is about as long as my self-control allows).
My keg allows the replinishment of co2 pressure via a co2 capsule
mount. I know of no reasons (yet) why beer should deteriorate in kegs
faster than in bottles, as long as you keep the pressure up. Anyone
have different (same) experience?
I always bottle several six-packs of each batch I keg. The difference
between the bottle and keg versions is alway noticable and
interesting. I find the kegged versions to be slightly creamier and
smoother, and their tastes evolve differently over time.
