An explosive party! Carboys are not designed to handle pressure. If you try
to use it under pressure it will likely crack or explode. Water Coolers are
not designed to handle liquids under pressure either, and you will probably
destroy the seals in the unit, and perhaps even the faucets.


Bad idea.
