    GrowlerWerks uKeg 64 CO2 Chargers 8g, Box of 10 review [Book]  2019-11-29 18:4

    These co2 cartridges did not fit inside the ukeg 128 as specified. I would like a refund.UPDATE: 1/2019 I contacted Growlerwoks and they informed me that their co2 supplier had changed specs since the early Growlerworks Ukegs were made. They sent a fresh sleeve that fits fresh co2 cartridges free of charge. Amazon was no support but Growlerworks stands behind their products.

    The CO2 cartridges are fine and fit the growler perfectly. The issue was the method they arrived at our house. They were in a box that was waaaaaay too huge (see picture) with absolutely NO wrapping around them. The box they were in inside the mailing box was begin and the cartridges were rolling around loose inside! Not good!

    Cartridges are too big, lose all pressure before it's fully screwed in on The Growler, ordered correct size for a 64 Oz Growler not sure why I'm losing all the pressure .

    Disappointed in myself and the system when I received the CO2 cartridges. I was almost out and required to replenish my stock and they just happened to pop up in my "you bought these before, buy them again" window. Fortuitous and a bit creepy! Anyway I clicked buy and a few days later got the 8 gram cartridges, which I DID NOT buy in the past because I have a UKeg 128 which takes the 16 gram cartridges...should have looked more closely before hitting buy - stupid should hurt.

    These are exactly what they say they are. Necessary to note, you will go through one cartridge with every 64 oz. fill. You might think you can squeeze two fills out of one cartridge but more often than not you'll come up short at the end of the second fill and be disappointed...

    I have not had the opportunity to use any of these from this box. This box came with them all rolling loose in the package. I don't believe this will be an issue. The ones I have used in the past worked great.

    As far as the gas goes they have it. I was not aware the co2 canisters came in various sizes. My beer equipment uses the standard size, not these. So be aware this could be an problem for you homebrew setup. I can't rate them poorly due to my lack of knowledge.

    More expensive than generic brands but based on some internet chatter I decided to play it safe and purchase maybe brand. Enough cow to empty the keg, refill with water for cleaning, and empty again.

    GrowlerWerks Black Chrome uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz review [Book]  2019-12-4 18:3

    The uKeg 64 by Growlerwerks is a special device and it's amazing for people like me who only want to drink a 4-5 ounces of beer in a session; however, the uKeg is ridden with QC issues. The fresh design should render the older QC reviews obsolete, but my problem involves, specifically, the regulator ter the first 3 uses of my Ukeg, each and every one of my Co2 cartridges would rupture upon replacement. The customer service squad instructed me to replace the seals, then reassemble the regulator cap. After following these instructions, it still prematurely pierces the cartridge, thereby expelling all of the Co2 from the chamber.I requested a replacement regulator cap, but no one ever responded to my email. I purchased the Ukeg to add a level of convenience to my casual beer consumption. If you are interested in diagnosing a litany of problems when the keg falters, then this product may serve you well. If you are looking for a convenient method to consume smaller quantities of beer, then I would recommend staying away from this product.

    GrowlerWerks Black Chrome uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz review [Book]  2019-12-4 18:3

    This is a special idea with lots of potential but this product has some QA issues. I rec'd the 128 for xmas from my girlfriend, she is amazing obviously. I took out the product and read the enclosed materials about care and cleaning. These are all very well place together, simple to understand and professional. I then started to play with the product a bit to obtain more comfortable with it's parts and working etc. Well immediately I noticed the plastic tap handle that comes with the unit was not properly attached and pops right off with no exertion. If you were to hint the product on its side, say for cleaning, the tap handle falls right off. This isn't a deal breaker as the unit still functions without it, but the look isn't that en I noticed that the tap locking mechanism didn't seem to operate. I would [email protected]#$%! in, but then I could easily override it by pulling the tap handle. "That's not how that's supposed to work," I said to myself. After about a week I was in the garage and I decided to take a closer look. So I grabbed the unit and pushed as hard as I possibly could on the locking mechanism. With veins bulging in my neck the mechanism finally *popped* all the method through as intended and locked the tap. There was clearly something wrong with the machining or fitting on this piece but brute force finally won out. This part of the unit now works properly as intended and no longer requires me to lean on it with all my might, it slides back and forth with normal pressure.Anyways the kit came with two CO2 chargers. This is a finicky product. In order to maintain a consistent level of carbonation one has to monitor the gauge after each pour. This isn't surprising as fluctuations in temperature and volume within the mini keg will require you to adjust how much CO2 goes in. So just hold in mind, if you are seeking 5-10 psi and you just filled the keg, that the amount of turn on the CO2 bit doesn't need to be that much. Once you put it in the fridge the CO2 will climb above whatever you originally set it at. Then after you take some pulls you will need to reintroduce more CO2. This should be expected as this is a very easy mechanism for introducing CO2 and really is not a science. The beer itself comes out fine in my stly, and this is sort of the thing that really created me question the QA of the company, was in February I was out of CO2. I ordered CO2 cartridges for the 128 specifically from Growlerwerks on amazon. Well they arrived about a week or more later since the cartridges have to be shipped via ground. I specifically ordered from Growlerwerks to be safe. I knew I could obtain related cartridges elsewhere but was worried they would not fit correctly. So just the other night when I got a possibility to refill the growler for the first time since February I place a fresh CO2 cartridge in...it doesn't fit (picture attached). These cartridges cost over $30 with shipping. They are not after shop or created by a company with no affiliation with Growlerwerks. The packaging is Growlerwerks packaging and was ordered from them on their amazon store. This, to me, is the most unacceptable part of the entire thing and solidifies my belief that the product is suffering from it's own not good quality checks. If it were not for these problems listed above I would say this product it very good, maybe even excellent, however because of one little problem after the next it's OK at best. So beware that the product does work as advertised when everything is going excellent but the company themselves seems to be dropping the ball on quality, which hurts the product.

    GrowlerWerks Black Chrome uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz review [Book]  2019-12-4 18:3

    It just took a small mech skills to obtain it to work:Here's how my experience went. I got the product, went through the instructions, tried it out (with water). Instantly lost the CO2. Tried again faster and got the CO2 into the tank, but it only got to 5 psi and couldn't obtain all the water out through the tap (for reference it can keep between 0 and 15 psi). Took another look at the instructions, went through problem shooting and online reviews (which were highly mixed). Started to think I bought a lemon, sadly as a wedding gift. I took it into the machine store where I work, got fresh O-rings. Started taking the Cap apart, and noticed the "Piecer O-Ring" was Off seat (see attached photo). Took the "Piercer" out and the "High Side Pin" looked wonky. Sure enough it was installed upside down. Flipped it over, reassembled everything using a little amount of Cisco Oil for o-ring Lube, place the first cartage in and SUCCESS!!! held like a dream. I ran 4 tanks through back to back and then left a full tank of water pressurized for overnight on my counter with no issues. I'm a small miffed that I had to take it apart to obtain it to work, but I am very excited I obtain to present up to the Rehearsal Dinner with it filled with beer. So close to being a 5 star product, or a 1 start, so I'll average them.

    Everything appears to be of amazing quality, except the regulator unit. It is created of plastic and the seals/gaskets tend to move out of put if you tighten it too much. Yes, you should be careful when you tighten something like this, but this is unreasonably fragile. Especially for something that is rst, if you tighten the regulator too tight when putting it on the growler, the ring seal easily moves out of place, the ring seal slips out of its groove. This causes the CO2 to leak out of the growler, hence losing its pressure. Once I figured this out, I always had to remind the bartender to gently place on the cap and just turn it to where it is snug and not too cond, after I got that worked out, a fresh problem popped up. Now when I replace the cartridge and tighten the case, which then punctures the cartridge, you have to hold tightening the case so it does not leak. Well, now it leaks before I can even place it on the growler. The seals in this part are damaged and is growler could very easily be a 5 star. But the latest few times that I have tried to present it off to friends, the regulator would fail on me. Now the regulator is completely useless.I now have a very expensive non-pressurized growler, which I have had for 2 and 1/2 months and filled only 5 times.I will reach out to Growlerwerks and see how this gets handled and modernize this ank you, for reading.

    I was nearly turned off by all of the negative feedback on this product, I will admit. But I also figured that Amazon has a amazing return policy in the happening I purchased a growler with a manufacturing is is a amazing bonus for the beer-lover in your life! I was truly impressed with how cold the beer stayed and the level of carbonation. Flavor remained pure and bright on the IPAs for much longer than in the growler bottle. We've wanted a "keg-o-rater" for a long time, but haven't been able to justify the investment. This awesome growler fits the bill perfectly and accurately reflects our consumption. Now we can obtain a growler from the brewery once every couple of weeks without worrying that we have to drink the entire thing in one night. Love!Ease of assembly: it took probably five mins out of the box. The number of pieces did appear a bit overwhelming at first, but the instructions were decent and we had it assembled in no hint - create sure to pour your beer in the growler with enough time to allow it rest. We got trigger satisfied and tried to pour a beer immediately to see how it functioned, and naturally that first pour was incredibly foamy. Allow it settle for a couple hours before enjoying to maximize the usefulness of the growler. (I mean, if you plan to drink your purchased beer right away, what's really the point of a storage system like this one?)Is it worth the steep price tag? This growler is well-within the shop we found. I worry about the price only because the number of people that have had issues with this particular brand. We, however, received a well-functioning unit, so I'd say it's worth it at this point. If you obtain one that doesn't work, I'd advise you to return and replace it with another. Because when functioning as it should be, as ours has done for the past few weeks, this growler is a android game changer.

    After buying 2 uKegs, both started experiencing issues with the regulators. Specifically, you could never shut the C02 completely off and now I'm spending $$ on C02 when I could be buying more beer.And to create it even more fun... Two emails sent to help over the latest several days have gone guys need to help your product better. Beautiful simple. The review hear speak to that issue.I'm going back to growlers. Much less eg= not good execution, not good support

    GrowlerWerks Black Chrome uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz review [Book]  2019-12-4 18:3

    I bought this in early 2017, primarily to force carbonate home-brew. It works extremely well with no leaks, and it holds pressure perfectly. I have since moved onto 5-gallon kegs for force carbonating and use the uKeg for serving in my refrigerator and for transporting to share with others. I highly recommend watching the UKEG FIRST USE PRIMER video on the Growlerwerks www service under the "How To" tab. Based on that content, I'm guessing there were some early manufacturing (no design) problems that led to some of the not good reviews/experiences by the very early adopters. I had none of the problems (that could have easily been corrected by following instructions in the video) addressed, but it was reassuring to know I received a excellent force carbonate, I filled the growler using a bottling wand, then cooled the beer to about 40 degrees F. I then installed the cartridge and cap and opened the valve to full pressure. In a week I had perfectly carbonated amber ale. I then turned the pressure down to about 6 psi. I did have to use a second cartridge after drinking the first couple of pints. This is because force carbonating uses the majority of the first cartridge. If force-carbonating home-brew, I do recommend under-filling so there is more surface zone for absorbing CO2. You can also rock the growler on it's side, back and forth, for 2 or 3 mins to expedite carbonating the home-brew, like with any ter force carbonating, dispensing beer is just like any commercial beer you might fill the growler with. In that case, one cartridge is plenty for dispensing the full rough all of this I had no leaks, and it held pressure flawlessly over the course of two weeks.I did obtain a drip or two every time I dispenses, This is because some beer obtain caught in the spigot. Just tilt the growler forward after pouring to dispense the captured couple of drops into you glass, or use a bar towel...or both. It's a non-issue for me, as this is an perfect product.

    I create beer for a living, so I have an opinion based on experience. This thing is a piece of crap.I used it three times over a week and the seals stopped working.When I complained to the company I got a LONG set of e-mail instructions about taking the thing apart and checking the seals. (Side note: the e-mail was long but also vague and had a lot of misspellings.) The HUGE issue is that they don’t contain the small tool that is really needed to take it apart without damaging it. Secondly, they don’t contain any replacement seals, which likely costs next to nothing.I went through a box of chargers trying to create it work. After days of swearing and frustration I gave up and my mate turned the growler into a e product is beautiful and I was excited to obtain it, however, it is worthless and attempts to obtain it fixed by working with the manufacturer fell short of success. I do not recommend this product, unless you wish a $150 planter.

    Don't buy this product unless you like watching one CO2 cartridge after another empty in 3 seconds! Their propriety "CO2 regulator cap" is crap. On top of that, their customer service is non-existent!

    It just took a small mech skills to obtain it to work:Here's how my experience went. I got the product, went through the instructions, tried it out (with water). Instantly lost the CO2. Tried again faster and got the CO2 into the tank, but it only got to 5 psi and couldn't obtain all the water out through the tap (for reference it can keep between 0 and 15 psi). Took another look at the instructions, went through problem shooting and online reviews (which were highly mixed). Started to think I bought a lemon, sadly as a wedding gift. I took it into the machine store where I work, got fresh O-rings. Started taking the Cap apart, and noticed the "Piecer O-Ring" was Off seat (see attached photo). Took the "Piercer" out and the "High Side Pin" looked wonky. Sure enough it was installed upside down. Flipped it over, reassembled everything using a little amount of Cisco Oil for o-ring Lube, place the first cartage in and SUCCESS!!! held like a dream. I ran 4 tanks through back to back and then left a full tank of water pressurized for overnight on my counter with no issues. I'm a small miffed that I had to take it apart to obtain it to work, but I am very excited I obtain to present up to the Rehearsal Dinner with it filled with beer. So close to being a 5 star product, or a 1 start, so I'll average them.

    Everything appears to be of amazing quality, except the regulator unit. It is created of plastic and the seals/gaskets tend to move out of put if you tighten it too much. Yes, you should be careful when you tighten something like this, but this is unreasonably fragile. Especially for something that is rst, if you tighten the regulator too tight when putting it on the growler, the ring seal easily moves out of place, the ring seal slips out of its groove. This causes the CO2 to leak out of the growler, hence losing its pressure. Once I figured this out, I always had to remind the bartender to gently place on the cap and just turn it to where it is snug and not too cond, after I got that worked out, a fresh problem popped up. Now when I replace the cartridge and tighten the case, which then punctures the cartridge, you have to hold tightening the case so it does not leak. Well, now it leaks before I can even place it on the growler. The seals in this part are damaged and is growler could very easily be a 5 star. But the latest few times that I have tried to present it off to friends, the regulator would fail on me. Now the regulator is completely useless.I now have a very expensive non-pressurized growler, which I have had for 2 and 1/2 months and filled only 5 times.I will reach out to Growlerwerks and see how this gets handled and modernize this ank you, for reading.

    I was nearly turned off by all of the negative feedback on this product, I will admit. But I also figured that Amazon has a amazing return policy in the happening I purchased a growler with a manufacturing is is a amazing bonus for the beer-lover in your life! I was truly impressed with how cold the beer stayed and the level of carbonation. Flavor remained pure and bright on the IPAs for much longer than in the growler bottle. We've wanted a "keg-o-rater" for a long time, but haven't been able to justify the investment. This awesome growler fits the bill perfectly and accurately reflects our consumption. Now we can obtain a growler from the brewery once every couple of weeks without worrying that we have to drink the entire thing in one night. Love!Ease of assembly: it took probably five mins out of the box. The number of pieces did appear a bit overwhelming at first, but the instructions were decent and we had it assembled in no hint - create sure to pour your beer in the growler with enough time to allow it rest. We got trigger satisfied and tried to pour a beer immediately to see how it functioned, and naturally that first pour was incredibly foamy. Allow it settle for a couple hours before enjoying to maximize the usefulness of the growler. (I mean, if you plan to drink your purchased beer right away, what's really the point of a storage system like this one?)Is it worth the steep price tag? This growler is well-within the shop we found. I worry about the price only because the number of people that have had issues with this particular brand. We, however, received a well-functioning unit, so I'd say it's worth it at this point. If you obtain one that doesn't work, I'd advise you to return and replace it with another. Because when functioning as it should be, as ours has done for the past few weeks, this growler is a android game changer.

    I create beer for a living, so I have an opinion based on experience. This thing is a piece of crap.I used it three times over a week and the seals stopped working.When I complained to the company I got a LONG set of e-mail instructions about taking the thing apart and checking the seals. (Side note: the e-mail was long but also vague and had a lot of misspellings.) The HUGE issue is that they don’t contain the small tool that is really needed to take it apart without damaging it. Secondly, they don’t contain any replacement seals, which likely costs next to nothing.I went through a box of chargers trying to create it work. After days of swearing and frustration I gave up and my mate turned the growler into a e product is beautiful and I was excited to obtain it, however, it is worthless and attempts to obtain it fixed by working with the manufacturer fell short of success. I do not recommend this product, unless you wish a $150 planter.

    I bought this in early 2017, primarily to force carbonate home-brew. It works extremely well with no leaks, and it holds pressure perfectly. I have since moved onto 5-gallon kegs for force carbonating and use the uKeg for serving in my refrigerator and for transporting to share with others. I highly recommend watching the UKEG FIRST USE PRIMER video on the Growlerwerks www service under the "How To" tab. Based on that content, I'm guessing there were some early manufacturing (no design) problems that led to some of the not good reviews/experiences by the very early adopters. I had none of the problems (that could have easily been corrected by following instructions in the video) addressed, but it was reassuring to know I received a excellent force carbonate, I filled the growler using a bottling wand, then cooled the beer to about 40 degrees F. I then installed the cartridge and cap and opened the valve to full pressure. In a week I had perfectly carbonated amber ale. I then turned the pressure down to about 6 psi. I did have to use a second cartridge after drinking the first couple of pints. This is because force carbonating uses the majority of the first cartridge. If force-carbonating home-brew, I do recommend under-filling so there is more surface zone for absorbing CO2. You can also rock the growler on it's side, back and forth, for 2 or 3 mins to expedite carbonating the home-brew, like with any ter force carbonating, dispensing beer is just like any commercial beer you might fill the growler with. In that case, one cartridge is plenty for dispensing the full rough all of this I had no leaks, and it held pressure flawlessly over the course of two weeks.I did obtain a drip or two every time I dispenses, This is because some beer obtain caught in the spigot. Just tilt the growler forward after pouring to dispense the captured couple of drops into you glass, or use a bar towel...or both. It's a non-issue for me, as this is an perfect product.

    Don't buy this product unless you like watching one CO2 cartridge after another empty in 3 seconds! Their propriety "CO2 regulator cap" is crap. On top of that, their customer service is non-existent!

    These co2 cartridges did not fit inside the ukeg 128 as specified. I would like a refund.UPDATE: 1/2019 I contacted Growlerwoks and they informed me that their co2 supplier had changed specs since the early Growlerworks Ukegs were made. They sent a fresh sleeve that fits fresh co2 cartridges free of charge. Amazon was no support but Growlerworks stands behind their products.

    The CO2 cartridges are fine and fit the growler perfectly. The issue was the method they arrived at our house. They were in a box that was waaaaaay too huge (see picture) with absolutely NO wrapping around them. The box they were in inside the mailing box was begin and the cartridges were rolling around loose inside! Not good!

    Disappointed in myself and the system when I received the CO2 cartridges. I was almost out and required to replenish my stock and they just happened to pop up in my "you bought these before, buy them again" window. Fortuitous and a bit creepy! Anyway I clicked buy and a few days later got the 8 gram cartridges, which I DID NOT buy in the past because I have a UKeg 128 which takes the 16 gram cartridges...should have looked more closely before hitting buy - stupid should hurt.

    These are exactly what they say they are. Necessary to note, you will go through one cartridge with every 64 oz. fill. You might think you can squeeze two fills out of one cartridge but more often than not you'll come up short at the end of the second fill and be disappointed...

    I have not had the opportunity to use any of these from this box. This box came with them all rolling loose in the package. I don't believe this will be an issue. The ones I have used in the past worked great.

    As far as the gas goes they have it. I was not aware the co2 canisters came in various sizes. My beer equipment uses the standard size, not these. So be aware this could be an problem for you homebrew setup. I can't rate them poorly due to my lack of knowledge.

    More expensive than generic brands but based on some internet chatter I decided to play it safe and purchase maybe brand. Enough cow to empty the keg, refill with water for cleaning, and empty again.

    GrowlerWerks Black Chrome uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    The uKeg 64 by Growlerwerks is a special device and it's amazing for people like me who only want to drink a 4-5 ounces of beer in a session; however, the uKeg is ridden with QC issues. The fresh design should render the older QC reviews obsolete, but my problem involves, specifically, the regulator ter the first 3 uses of my Ukeg, each and every one of my Co2 cartridges would rupture upon replacement. The customer service squad instructed me to replace the seals, then reassemble the regulator cap. After following these instructions, it still prematurely pierces the cartridge, thereby expelling all of the Co2 from the chamber.I requested a replacement regulator cap, but no one ever responded to my email. I purchased the Ukeg to add a level of convenience to my casual beer consumption. If you are interested in diagnosing a litany of problems when the keg falters, then this product may serve you well. If you are looking for a convenient method to consume smaller quantities of beer, then I would recommend staying away from this product.

    GrowlerWerks Black Chrome uKeg Carbonated Growler, 64 oz review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    This is a special idea with lots of potential but this product has some QA issues. I rec'd the 128 for xmas from my girlfriend, she is amazing obviously. I took out the product and read the enclosed materials about care and cleaning. These are all very well place together, simple to understand and professional. I then started to play with the product a bit to obtain more comfortable with it's parts and working etc. Well immediately I noticed the plastic tap handle that comes with the unit was not properly attached and pops right off with no exertion. If you were to hint the product on its side, say for cleaning, the tap handle falls right off. This isn't a deal breaker as the unit still functions without it, but the look isn't that en I noticed that the tap locking mechanism didn't seem to operate. I would [email protected]#$%! in, but then I could easily override it by pulling the tap handle. "That's not how that's supposed to work," I said to myself. After about a week I was in the garage and I decided to take a closer look. So I grabbed the unit and pushed as hard as I possibly could on the locking mechanism. With veins bulging in my neck the mechanism finally *popped* all the method through as intended and locked the tap. There was clearly something wrong with the machining or fitting on this piece but brute force finally won out. This part of the unit now works properly as intended and no longer requires me to lean on it with all my might, it slides back and forth with normal pressure.Anyways the kit came with two CO2 chargers. This is a finicky product. In order to maintain a consistent level of carbonation one has to monitor the gauge after each pour. This isn't surprising as fluctuations in temperature and volume within the mini keg will require you to adjust how much CO2 goes in. So just hold in mind, if you are seeking 5-10 psi and you just filled the keg, that the amount of turn on the CO2 bit doesn't need to be that much. Once you put it in the fridge the CO2 will climb above whatever you originally set it at. Then after you take some pulls you will need to reintroduce more CO2. This should be expected as this is a very easy mechanism for introducing CO2 and really is not a science. The beer itself comes out fine in my stly, and this is sort of the thing that really created me question the QA of the company, was in February I was out of CO2. I ordered CO2 cartridges for the 128 specifically from Growlerwerks on amazon. Well they arrived about a week or more later since the cartridges have to be shipped via ground. I specifically ordered from Growlerwerks to be safe. I knew I could obtain related cartridges elsewhere but was worried they would not fit correctly. So just the other night when I got a possibility to refill the growler for the first time since February I place a fresh CO2 cartridge in...it doesn't fit (picture attached). These cartridges cost over $30 with shipping. They are not after shop or created by a company with no affiliation with Growlerwerks. The packaging is Growlerwerks packaging and was ordered from them on their amazon store. This, to me, is the most unacceptable part of the entire thing and solidifies my belief that the product is suffering from it's own not good quality checks. If it were not for these problems listed above I would say this product it very good, maybe even excellent, however because of one little problem after the next it's OK at best. So beware that the product does work as advertised when everything is going excellent but the company themselves seems to be dropping the ball on quality, which hurts the product.

    Cartridges are too big, lose all pressure before it's fully screwed in on The Growler, ordered correct size for a 64 Oz Growler not sure why I'm losing all the pressure .

    Disappointed in myself and the system when I received the CO2 cartridges. I was almost out and required to replenish my stock and they just happened to pop up in my "you bought these before, buy them again" window. Fortuitous and a bit creepy! Anyway I clicked buy and a few days later got the 8 gram cartridges, which I DID NOT buy in the past because I have a UKeg 128 which takes the 16 gram cartridges...should have looked more closely before hitting buy - stupid should hurt.

    These are exactly what they say they are. Necessary to note, you will go through one cartridge with every 64 oz. fill. You might think you can squeeze two fills out of one cartridge but more often than not you'll come up short at the end of the second fill and be disappointed...

    I have not had the opportunity to use any of these from this box. This box came with them all rolling loose in the package. I don't believe this will be an issue. The ones I have used in the past worked great.

    As far as the gas goes they have it. I was not aware the co2 canisters came in various sizes. My beer equipment uses the standard size, not these. So be aware this could be an problem for you homebrew setup. I can't rate them poorly due to my lack of knowledge.

    More expensive than generic brands but based on some internet chatter I decided to play it safe and purchase maybe brand. Enough cow to empty the keg, refill with water for cleaning, and empty again.

    The uKeg 64 by Growlerwerks is a special device and it's amazing for people like me who only want to drink a 4-5 ounces of beer in a session; however, the uKeg is ridden with QC issues. The fresh design should render the older QC reviews obsolete, but my problem involves, specifically, the regulator ter the first 3 uses of my Ukeg, each and every one of my Co2 cartridges would rupture upon replacement. The customer service squad instructed me to replace the seals, then reassemble the regulator cap. After following these instructions, it still prematurely pierces the cartridge, thereby expelling all of the Co2 from the chamber.I requested a replacement regulator cap, but no one ever responded to my email. I purchased the Ukeg to add a level of convenience to my casual beer consumption. If you are interested in diagnosing a litany of problems when the keg falters, then this product may serve you well. If you are looking for a convenient method to consume smaller quantities of beer, then I would recommend staying away from this product.

    This is a special idea with lots of potential but this product has some QA issues. I rec'd the 128 for xmas from my girlfriend, she is amazing obviously. I took out the product and read the enclosed materials about care and cleaning. These are all very well place together, simple to understand and professional. I then started to play with the product a bit to obtain more comfortable with it's parts and working etc. Well immediately I noticed the plastic tap handle that comes with the unit was not properly attached and pops right off with no exertion. If you were to hint the product on its side, say for cleaning, the tap handle falls right off. This isn't a deal breaker as the unit still functions without it, but the look isn't that en I noticed that the tap locking mechanism didn't seem to operate. I would [email protected]#$%! in, but then I could easily override it by pulling the tap handle. "That's not how that's supposed to work," I said to myself. After about a week I was in the garage and I decided to take a closer look. So I grabbed the unit and pushed as hard as I possibly could on the locking mechanism. With veins bulging in my neck the mechanism finally *popped* all the method through as intended and locked the tap. There was clearly something wrong with the machining or fitting on this piece but brute force finally won out. This part of the unit now works properly as intended and no longer requires me to lean on it with all my might, it slides back and forth with normal pressure.Anyways the kit came with two CO2 chargers. This is a finicky product. In order to maintain a consistent level of carbonation one has to monitor the gauge after each pour. This isn't surprising as fluctuations in temperature and volume within the mini keg will require you to adjust how much CO2 goes in. So just hold in mind, if you are seeking 5-10 psi and you just filled the keg, that the amount of turn on the CO2 bit doesn't need to be that much. Once you put it in the fridge the CO2 will climb above whatever you originally set it at. Then after you take some pulls you will need to reintroduce more CO2. This should be expected as this is a very easy mechanism for introducing CO2 and really is not a science. The beer itself comes out fine in my stly, and this is sort of the thing that really created me question the QA of the company, was in February I was out of CO2. I ordered CO2 cartridges for the 128 specifically from Growlerwerks on amazon. Well they arrived about a week or more later since the cartridges have to be shipped via ground. I specifically ordered from Growlerwerks to be safe. I knew I could obtain related cartridges elsewhere but was worried they would not fit correctly. So just the other night when I got a possibility to refill the growler for the first time since February I place a fresh CO2 cartridge in...it doesn't fit (picture attached). These cartridges cost over $30 with shipping. They are not after shop or created by a company with no affiliation with Growlerwerks. The packaging is Growlerwerks packaging and was ordered from them on their amazon store. This, to me, is the most unacceptable part of the entire thing and solidifies my belief that the product is suffering from it's own not good quality checks. If it were not for these problems listed above I would say this product it very good, maybe even excellent, however because of one little problem after the next it's OK at best. So beware that the product does work as advertised when everything is going excellent but the company themselves seems to be dropping the ball on quality, which hurts the product.

    It just took a small mech skills to obtain it to work:Here's how my experience went. I got the product, went through the instructions, tried it out (with water). Instantly lost the CO2. Tried again faster and got the CO2 into the tank, but it only got to 5 psi and couldn't obtain all the water out through the tap (for reference it can keep between 0 and 15 psi). Took another look at the instructions, went through problem shooting and online reviews (which were highly mixed). Started to think I bought a lemon, sadly as a wedding gift. I took it into the machine store where I work, got fresh O-rings. Started taking the Cap apart, and noticed the "Piecer O-Ring" was Off seat (see attached photo). Took the "Piercer" out and the "High Side Pin" looked wonky. Sure enough it was installed upside down. Flipped it over, reassembled everything using a little amount of Cisco Oil for o-ring Lube, place the first cartage in and SUCCESS!!! held like a dream. I ran 4 tanks through back to back and then left a full tank of water pressurized for overnight on my counter with no issues. I'm a small miffed that I had to take it apart to obtain it to work, but I am very excited I obtain to present up to the Rehearsal Dinner with it filled with beer. So close to being a 5 star product, or a 1 start, so I'll average them.

    Everything appears to be of amazing quality, except the regulator unit. It is created of plastic and the seals/gaskets tend to move out of put if you tighten it too much. Yes, you should be careful when you tighten something like this, but this is unreasonably fragile. Especially for something that is rst, if you tighten the regulator too tight when putting it on the growler, the ring seal easily moves out of place, the ring seal slips out of its groove. This causes the CO2 to leak out of the growler, hence losing its pressure. Once I figured this out, I always had to remind the bartender to gently place on the cap and just turn it to where it is snug and not too cond, after I got that worked out, a fresh problem popped up. Now when I replace the cartridge and tighten the case, which then punctures the cartridge, you have to hold tightening the case so it does not leak. Well, now it leaks before I can even place it on the growler. The seals in this part are damaged and is growler could very easily be a 5 star. But the latest few times that I have tried to present it off to friends, the regulator would fail on me. Now the regulator is completely useless.I now have a very expensive non-pressurized growler, which I have had for 2 and 1/2 months and filled only 5 times.I will reach out to Growlerwerks and see how this gets handled and modernize this ank you, for reading.

    I was nearly turned off by all of the negative feedback on this product, I will admit. But I also figured that Amazon has a amazing return policy in the happening I purchased a growler with a manufacturing is is a amazing bonus for the beer-lover in your life! I was truly impressed with how cold the beer stayed and the level of carbonation. Flavor remained pure and bright on the IPAs for much longer than in the growler bottle. We've wanted a "keg-o-rater" for a long time, but haven't been able to justify the investment. This awesome growler fits the bill perfectly and accurately reflects our consumption. Now we can obtain a growler from the brewery once every couple of weeks without worrying that we have to drink the entire thing in one night. Love!Ease of assembly: it took probably five mins out of the box. The number of pieces did appear a bit overwhelming at first, but the instructions were decent and we had it assembled in no hint - create sure to pour your beer in the growler with enough time to allow it rest. We got trigger satisfied and tried to pour a beer immediately to see how it functioned, and naturally that first pour was incredibly foamy. Allow it settle for a couple hours before enjoying to maximize the usefulness of the growler. (I mean, if you plan to drink your purchased beer right away, what's really the point of a storage system like this one?)Is it worth the steep price tag? This growler is well-within the shop we found. I worry about the price only because the number of people that have had issues with this particular brand. We, however, received a well-functioning unit, so I'd say it's worth it at this point. If you obtain one that doesn't work, I'd advise you to return and replace it with another. Because when functioning as it should be, as ours has done for the past few weeks, this growler is a android game changer.

    After buying 2 uKegs, both started experiencing issues with the regulators. Specifically, you could never shut the C02 completely off and now I'm spending $$ on C02 when I could be buying more beer.And to create it even more fun... Two emails sent to help over the latest several days have gone guys need to help your product better. Beautiful simple. The review hear speak to that issue.I'm going back to growlers. Much less eg= not good execution, not good support

    I create beer for a living, so I have an opinion based on experience. This thing is a piece of crap.I used it three times over a week and the seals stopped working.When I complained to the company I got a LONG set of e-mail instructions about taking the thing apart and checking the seals. (Side note: the e-mail was long but also vague and had a lot of misspellings.) The HUGE issue is that they don’t contain the small tool that is really needed to take it apart without damaging it. Secondly, they don’t contain any replacement seals, which likely costs next to nothing.I went through a box of chargers trying to create it work. After days of swearing and frustration I gave up and my mate turned the growler into a e product is beautiful and I was excited to obtain it, however, it is worthless and attempts to obtain it fixed by working with the manufacturer fell short of success. I do not recommend this product, unless you wish a $150 planter.

    I bought this in early 2017, primarily to force carbonate home-brew. It works extremely well with no leaks, and it holds pressure perfectly. I have since moved onto 5-gallon kegs for force carbonating and use the uKeg for serving in my refrigerator and for transporting to share with others. I highly recommend watching the UKEG FIRST USE PRIMER video on the Growlerwerks www service under the "How To" tab. Based on that content, I'm guessing there were some early manufacturing (no design) problems that led to some of the not good reviews/experiences by the very early adopters. I had none of the problems (that could have easily been corrected by following instructions in the video) addressed, but it was reassuring to know I received a excellent force carbonate, I filled the growler using a bottling wand, then cooled the beer to about 40 degrees F. I then installed the cartridge and cap and opened the valve to full pressure. In a week I had perfectly carbonated amber ale. I then turned the pressure down to about 6 psi. I did have to use a second cartridge after drinking the first couple of pints. This is because force carbonating uses the majority of the first cartridge. If force-carbonating home-brew, I do recommend under-filling so there is more surface zone for absorbing CO2. You can also rock the growler on it's side, back and forth, for 2 or 3 mins to expedite carbonating the home-brew, like with any ter force carbonating, dispensing beer is just like any commercial beer you might fill the growler with. In that case, one cartridge is plenty for dispensing the full rough all of this I had no leaks, and it held pressure flawlessly over the course of two weeks.I did obtain a drip or two every time I dispenses, This is because some beer obtain caught in the spigot. Just tilt the growler forward after pouring to dispense the captured couple of drops into you glass, or use a bar towel...or both. It's a non-issue for me, as this is an perfect product.

    These co2 cartridges did not fit inside the ukeg 128 as specified. I would like a refund.UPDATE: 1/2019 I contacted Growlerwoks and they informed me that their co2 supplier had changed specs since the early Growlerworks Ukegs were made. They sent a fresh sleeve that fits fresh co2 cartridges free of charge. Amazon was no support but Growlerworks stands behind their products.

    The CO2 cartridges are fine and fit the growler perfectly. The issue was the method they arrived at our house. They were in a box that was waaaaaay too huge (see picture) with absolutely NO wrapping around them. The box they were in inside the mailing box was begin and the cartridges were rolling around loose inside! Not good!

Now the regulator is completely useless.I now have a very expensive non-pressurized growler, which I have had for 2 and 1/2 months and filled only 5 times.I will reach out to Growlerwerks and see how this gets handled and modernize this ank you, for reading.

    I was nearly turned off by all of the negative feedback on this product, I will admit. But I also figured that Amazon has a amazing return policy in the happening I purchased a growler with a manufacturing is is a amazing bonus for the beer-lover in your life! I was truly impressed with how cold the beer stayed and the level of carbonation. Flavor remained pure and bright on the IPAs for much longer than in the growler bottle. We've wanted a "keg-o-rater" for a long time, but haven't been able to justify the investment. This awesome growler fits the bill perfectly and accurately reflects our consumption. Now we can obtain a growler from the brewery once every couple of weeks without worrying that we have to drink the entire thing in one night. Love!Ease of assembly: it took probably five mins out of the box. The number of pieces did appear a bit overwhelming at first, but the instructions were decent and we had it assembled in no hint - create sure to pour your beer in the growler with enough time to allow it rest. We got trigger satisfied and tried to pour a beer immediately to see how it functioned, and naturally that first pour was incredibly foamy. Allow it settle for a couple hours before enjoying to maximize the usefulness of the growler. (I mean, if you plan to drink your purchased beer right away, what's really the point of a storage system like this one?)Is it worth the steep price tag? This growler is well-within the shop we found. I worry about the price only because the number of people that have had issues with this particular brand. We, however, received a well-functioning unit, so I'd say it's worth it at this point. If you obtain one that doesn't work, I'd advise you to return and replace it with another. Because when functioning as it should be, as ours has done for the past few weeks, this growler is a android game changer.

    After buying 2 uKegs, both started experiencing issues with the regulators. Specifically, you could never shut the C02 completely off and now I'm spending $$ on C02 when I could be buying more beer.And to create it even more fun... Two emails sent to help over the latest several days have gone guys need to help your product better. Beautiful simple. The review hear speak to that issue.I'm going back to growlers. Much less eg= not good execution, not good support

    I create beer for a living, so I have an opinion based on experience. This thing is a piece of crap.I used it three times over a week and the seals stopped working.When I complained to the company I got a LONG set of e-mail instructions about taking the thing apart and checking the seals. (Side note: the e-mail was long but also vague and had a lot of misspellings.) The HUGE issue is that they don’t contain the small tool that is really needed to take it apart without damaging it. Secondly, they don’t contain any replacement seals, which likely costs next to nothing.I went through a box of chargers trying to create it work. After days of swearing and frustration I gave up and my mate turned the growler into a e product is beautiful and I was excited to obtain it, however, it is worthless and attempts to obtain it fixed by working with the manufacturer fell short of success. I do not recommend this product, unless you wish a $150 planter.

    I bought this in early 2017, primarily to force carbonate home-brew. It works extremely well with no leaks, and it holds pressure perfectly. I have since moved onto 5-gallon kegs for force carbonating and use the uKeg for serving in my refrigerator and for transporting to share with others. I highly recommend watching the UKEG FIRST USE PRIMER video on the Growlerwerks www service under the "How To" tab. Based on that content, I'm guessing there were some early manufacturing (no design) problems that led to some of the not good reviews/experiences by the very early adopters. I had none of the problems (that could have easily been corrected by following instructions in the video) addressed, but it was reassuring to know I received a excellent force carbonate, I filled the growler using a bottling wand, then cooled the beer to about 40 degrees F. I then installed the cartridge and cap and opened the valve to full pressure. In a week I had perfectly carbonated amber ale. I then turned the pressure down to about 6 psi. I did have to use a second cartridge after drinking the first couple of pints. This is because force carbonating uses the majority of the first cartridge. If force-carbonating home-brew, I do recommend under-filling so there is more surface zone for absorbing CO2. You can also rock the growler on it's side, back and forth, for 2 or 3 mins to expedite carbonating the home-brew, like with any ter force carbonating, dispensing beer is just like any commercial beer you might fill the growler with. In that case, one cartridge is plenty for dispensing the full rough all of this I had no leaks, and it held pressure flawlessly over the course of two weeks.I did obtain a drip or two every time I dispenses, This is because some beer obtain caught in the spigot. Just tilt the growler forward after pouring to dispense the captured couple of drops into you glass, or use a bar towel...or both. It's a non-issue for me, as this is an perfect product.

    Don't buy this product unless you like watching one CO2 cartridge after another empty in 3 seconds! Their propriety "CO2 regulator cap" is crap. On top of that, their customer service is non-existent!
