Hi there,

Anyone have primed in Dolium or one way kegs? I plan to bottle condition some beers (Saisons), and was also going to fill the kegs in the same manner. I like the beer to benefit from refermentation, and was wondering if anyone else been priming in these kegs.

My concern is safety, as Saison are usually at 3.0vol CO2 and I really want to avoid any kegs exploding.

how do you guys like using those plastic kegs? we have a nano in baja mexico where i would like to start selling kegs, but the import tax to transport steel kegs from the US into mexico is almost 20%. i've seen plastic kegs show up from time to time, but ive wondered about cost/durability/etc.

any opinions on how they've worked for you guys?

They work just fine ... just have to pay atention to pressure, but it's easy to release some extra pressure with the keg head with a pressure valve.
