Convert a Big Beer Draft System Into A Home Brew Mini Keg

Coors Light Home Draft

One good thing about the Heineken BeerTender, the Miller Home Draft and the Anheuser-Busch Draftmark Tap System is that with a little elbow grease, home brewers can turn them into mini travel kegs.

By removing the label, filling with beer and then recharging the CO2, you can have a gallon of your favorite brew at your disposal, ready for picnics, BBQs, parties and more.

The Danville Beer Club put together a great step-by-step instruction guide to help you through the process of converting a Miller Home Brew, and it’s surprisingly easy once you’re familiar with the pieces and parts that make up the system.
