|EdgeStar TBC50S Deluxe Mini Kegerator and Draft Beer Dispenser|
The min-keg I bought was already cold, it's recommended to refrigerate the mini-kegs for 10 hours before loading them into the dispenser because the dispenser is better at retaining the beer temperature at 38F than at cooling a warm keg down to it. Although the beer in the keg lasted only a little more than an hour it did manage to pour perfect beers at a cold temperature the entire time it sat on our counter. The real cooling capabilities test would be to plug the dispenser into a car's lighter socket for power and serve beer outdoors on a hot day.

Having the optional mini-keg and Co2 gear gives me another reason to drive over to a local pub and have my mini-keg filled, fresh from a newly arrived 'Firkin of the days' craft beer. If the 1.25 gallons of beer seems like a lot of beer don't worry the min-kegs will keep beer fresh and ready to pour for up to a month, which is a relatively long time in beer years.
