An Oregon company, Drink Tanks, is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fun development of their new 128oz “Juggernaut” stainless steel growler, and I plan to back it! They have already passed their fundraising goal so it’s only a matter of whether you want to get a growler at the discounted Kickstarter price.
I first found out about Drink Tanks when a coworker backed the 64oz version and started bring homebrew to share at work. The original Drink Tank used a small CO2 injector that would pressurize the vessel when you push the injector onto a valve. This worked but was hard to get a consistent pressure out of. The new version has a pretty cool regulator that allows you to dial in your desired pressure, up to 40PSI, which means you can use it to force-carbonate beer. No longer will I have to dump that last half gallon from the fermenter that just won’t fit in the corny keg!
The prices via the Kickstarter are pretty good. I plan to get the package with a 64oz vessel, a 128oz vessel, plus the kegulator and two standard caps, all for $169. I also trust the company to follow through because they delivered on their last kickstarter. The fundraising campaign ends on April 9th, so if you’re in the market for a new growler, maybe for bringing PROPERLY carbonated beer to meetings, now is a good time to get one. Looking at you, Dan 😉
