    I an not really understanding why you want to fill your fridge with water when you have (I assume) a big water tank somewhere in you van already?

    Me thinks it's for home brew NOT water

    My concern is that these containers are not fully air/water tight so they won't seal the contents from the atmosphere and your beer will go off! Sorry!

    As the container shown is a water carrier I would certainly hope so ... but they do NOT seal totally as I mentioned previously so it'd go off anyway!

    Oh I see, for goodness sake get it right then. You don't want your beer going off.

    I would just bottle it but you could use a 1 gal collapsible water container but it would have to be bright before you put in in and pree conditioned hardly worth the bother
    just put it in PET bottles and it will keep beater and retain it's co2

    How about polypins?
    LINK
    Won't work with gas but could put a bit of sugar in for a secondary fermentation.

    They are fine all you need to do is condition in your pressure barrel just let pressure off barill
    Fill you're poly pin with conditioned bright beer re charge your barrel with gas
    they work fine but don't prime a poly pin with sugar thay are for bright beer
    if you chill your beer before transferring you will get more co2 in solution in the beer
    any thing just below 5 deg c or lower will keep the co2 in the beer
