What’s going on at uKeg? Retail Availability and Kickstarter Fulfillment

4_1466444473

A while back I announced the availability of uKeg Growlers at MoreBeer.

See: GrowlerWerks UKeg 64 Pressurized SS Growler – 64 oz GL700

I received some feedback from people that still hadn’t received their Kickstarter reward yet when that post went live.  They were frustrated and I understand that.  I was a bit confused myself.

Not long after I spoke, by email, with the folks behind uKeg.  They have also published some updates on their Kickstarter page.  The short of it (in my words) is… They have been sued in what they are calling a frivolous lawsuit regarding patent issues.  That has put them in a cash crunch and in order to get out of that, they have moved into retail sales to fund Kickstarter fulfillment.  That’s my interpretation.  If you’re interested, I’d suggest reading all of their updates for their explanation.

From their August 14 update…

“Our new motto is: “Sell uKegs, Ship Rewards”

As you know, since a frivolous lawsuit was filed against us, we’ve had to use retail Sales to complete delivering rewards to our Backers. You have been very supportive during this challenge to the project and we appreciate it.”

Growler Filling Tips and Tricks

Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers
