Are you searching for the best homebrew kegerator? Look no further! When it comes to selecting a homebrew kegerator, I would highly recommend buying a dual tap system. Two good choices are the KC2000TWINHBKG & KC2000SSTWINHBKG. The difference between these two units is mostly aesthetic. The latter unit comes with a nice stainless steel finish.
One of the best aspects of both the KC2000TWINHBKG and KC2000SSTWINHBKG is the fact that both units are shipped with two refurbished ball and lock kegs. This will allow you to enjoy up to 10 gallons of your favorite homebrews at the same time. The KC2000 units have an adjustable thermostat that can be adjusted between the lower 30s to the mid 40s.
- If you already have a kegerator, you could purchase a ball and lock conversion kit. The tap right unit I linked to is well reviewed and will do the trick for just fifty bucks.
- Those who have a refrigerator and ball and lock keg already, could get by with this $150 Kegco kit. It has great reviews. The only problem some might have with this kit is that it will only allow you to have one keg connected at a time.
- Many homebrewers prefer to build a keezer. A keezer is the same concept as a kegerator, but instead of a compact refrigerator, you use a chest freezer. The advantage is you can have many beers on tap at once. The disadvantages are you will have to build it yourself, they will likely use more electricity, and chest freezers take a large amount of space. In short, this can be a great option if you are mechanically inclined and your wife won’t kill you for taking up too much space. We all deserve a man cave or at least a nice garage though. Another alternative to a keezer is to use a conversion kit on a full sized refrigerator.
Here is a helpful video from the folks at Northern Brewer about how to build a keezer.
If you end up building a unit and decide that you need more ball and lock keg (cornelius keg), you can find them here. That link is to Kegerator.com. They also have some inexpensive homebrew supplies, although the selection isn’t as good as some of the more established vendors, like Northern Brewer and Midwest Supplies.
