Can anyone recommend an inexpensive mini keg to do forced co2 carbonation?

I'm going to use it for hard cider and maybe unfermented apple juice.
(I assume it would be okay to use it with other beverages. Is that right?)

Most people use Cornelius kegs (aka corney kegs). The most common size
is a 19L (5 US gallon), well in north america at least. They are also
known as pop kegs and are available in a few different sizes (larger and
smaller than the 5US gal).

You can carbonate whatever you want, though for different beverages you
will want a different amount of carbonation (more for cider than beer,
and even more for sparkling wines).

Dont bother, buy a used "korny" keg, recondition it by purchasing a new set
of seals at your local homebrew store.  Save the hassle of doing it later.
