Cool idea, but to get one at even the Kickstarter Early Bird is $369 - AND you only have until tomorrow (2/2/17) to get in on this price. MSRP will be $439 once they get into full production.

Since I don't paint gun, I checked on the 90 gm CO2 cartridges - they're like $9 each. But, you supposedly can hook this thing up to an external source, so I'm assuming you can use your regular CO2 tank if it's nearby.

Found these guys that started as a Kickstarter, but are now in full production. A lot cheaper option than the Chiller. Got decent reviews, too.

Since I already have the CO2 dispenser for my regular kegs, can save some coin by just buying the tap - the "homebrewer option."

My only question is whether the beer comes out too foamy?
