Finally upgraded to draught system!

Post #1 by Mr_Tastyfish » 2 weeks ago

So after 4+ years of bottling my homebrew, I've finally gone and upgraded to a draught system. :rockon:

I looked at a few different options, and ended up ordering an Insignia 2-tap kegerator from Best-Buy. I got it on sale for less than what I figured it would have cost to build one myself. The kegerator comes equipped with sanke couplers to accommodate commercial beer kegs, so I switched them for pin-lock connectors (because I could get pin-lock kegs at nearly half the cost of ball-locks). Today I cleaned and sanitized the lines/taps and kegs, then transferred my latest creation into one of the kegs. It's now hooked up and carbonating at about 25psi. I can hardly wait to pour my first pint.
:cheers:

I love kegging. Keep a bottle of starsan handy to check for leaks. Dont use windex......
I find i serve the best between 12 and 16 psi, but i also usually have english styles on tap, and i takes a week or so to carb.

You are a patient man! I only bottled for a year before I started kegging!
