Our kegerators come fully equipped for the purpose of home brew. The only additional purchases you would need to make is a 19L ball lock keg. These top of the line kegs come with a 10 year warranty and are made to be compatible to our kegerators, meaning that no additional coupler purchases are required for the purpose of home brew. This also means that you are able to fit 4 of the 19L ball lock kegs in any Series X Kegerator fridges.
Couplers are required for commercial keg use. Below is a list of the beer brands that are compatible to each coupler. You will need to purchase 1 coupler per tap in use.
D type coupler:
S type coupler:
The big brands are split mostly between the A and D type couplers. You can operate up to three 20L commercial kegs at once in our series X triple tap kegerators, therefore it may be best to purchase 1 of each coupler so you don't miss out on any of the above beer brands. Alternatively if you're set on your favourite beer brand it would be in your best interest to purchase the same coupler for all of the taps. These couplers are easy to attach and detach, you would just have to make sure that the appropriate beer brand is attached to the appropriate coupler.
Commonly Asked Questions:
1. What's the difference between the Series 4 and Series X kegerator?
The Series X is a much more modern model of the Series 4. The Series X has 15% faster cooling whilst being 10% more energy efficient. It can also fit four 19L ball lock kegs for home brew in comparison to three from the Series 4 and three 20L commercial kegs as opposed to two.
2. Are there any purchases you'd recommend to help manage the upkeep of the kegerator?
Our stellar clean beer line cleaner and Keg cleaning powder, comes standard in our kegerator kits. If you need more, go to our Beer Supply | Accessories
section. It removes protein soil and staining, baked on carbon, and fatty acids.
3. Do the kegerators come with a gas cylinder and how long do they last?
The Single Tap Kegerator purchase comes with a full 2.6kg C02 gas cylinder and the Double Tap Kegerator purchase comes with a full 2.66kg CO2 gas cylinder. The 2.6kg gas cylinder lasts for 6-8 x 50L commercial kegs depending on spillage.
4.How long does it take for the kegs to cool?
It is quite hard to say as it depends on how they've previously been stored but kegs at room temperature take approximately 6 hours to cool.
5. How long can kegs be stored in the fridge?
Rule of thumb is 6 weeks. After 6 weeks flavours start to fade, oxidization occurs, and the protein structure that gives the beer body starts to break down.
