This kit has everything you need to convert a fridge into a fully kitted kegerator. All you need to add is a fridge, a CO2 bottle, and your beer!
We’ve designed this kit so it’s easy to set up for those that are new to kegs, and with quality in mind rather than skimping, so you’ll be pouring perfect pints in no time.
This kit contains:
2 x Premium AEB 12 Litre New Stainless Kegs Imported directly from Italy, these are the ultimate in dispense kegs.
1 x Micro Matic CO2 Regulator – with fine adjustment of pressure so you can dial in the perfect serving pressure
1 x Sodastream adapter for regulator – this allows you to run your kegs from a Sodastream CO2 bottle rather than a full size 6.3kg or 3.2kg bottle – ideal for taking kegs to parties and events
Keg disconnects for gas and beer and John Guest fittings to connect to the 3/8 lines
2x stainless steel long shank and kegerator tap plus John Guest fittings
1x tap shank spanner to tighten everything up
2 x beer tap brush and plug to keep your taps protected when not in use
1 x bottle keg and tap sanitiser
Set up instructions
Check out the video below to see us building a kegerator. The contents of the kit used in the video are slightly different but the process is the same.
Your kegs will be inside the fridge keeping cool, hooked up to the taps in the door for serving, with your CO2 bottle outside. You could buy a new fridge or more likely rescue a secondhand one from eBay or Gumtree!
First you’ll need to drill two 22mm holes through the door of your fridge (one for each tap). Screw the taps onto the shanks, then slot the shanks through your holes and add the rubber washer and hex nuts to secure the tap to the door. Add the John Guest screw fitting to the back of the shank inside the door.
For each tap, use 3/8 tubing to connect from the inside shank to a 3/8 to 3/16 adapter, then connect up a length of 3/16 beer/gas line. Add another 3/8 to 3/16 adapter and a small length of 3/8 line to connect to the black liquid out disconnect on your keg. Stepping the serving line down to 3/16 like this adds back pressure and helps reduce “fobbing” (pints of foam!).
For the gas line, connect 3/8 tubing to your regulator, then use a 3/8 to 3/16 adapter and connect a length of 3/16 line. Feed this line through the drain hole in your fridge, then use another 3/8 to 3/16 adapter to get back up to 3/8. Add a short length of 3/8 line then connect the 3/8 line splitter. You can then add more 3/8 line to connect to the grey gas in disconnects on each keg.
As with any purchase of equipment which is going to come into contact with wort or beer we would always recommend you carry out your own cleaning and sanitisation process before using to remove any manufacturing oils and reduce risk of any infection of your brew.
