In response to William F Pemberton <wfp5p@euclid.acc.virginia.edu>
query about Brewcraft Plastic Kegs.

Yes, I've tried Brewcraft Plastic Kegs, and the experience prompted me
to bite the bullet and buy a real kegging system. I found the pressure
in teh Brewcraft Plastic Keg to be difficult, if not impossible, to regulate,
mainly due to the lack of a regulator. I had difficulty with the tap on
the keg leaking. Also, the top sometimes leaked the CO2 out. My
entire experience with the Brewcraft Plastic Keg was negative, and it
currently collects spider webs in some distant corner of the barn.
(Perhaps the product has improved since when I tested it in 1984.)

My advice. Don't waste your time or money on it. Get some stainless steel
soda syrup kegs and do it right.
