Two Types of Kegerator Conversion Kit

There are many variations of Kegerator Conversion Kits. These kits have been divided into two categories:

Kegerator Door Mount Conversion Kits
Beer is dispensed from a faucet mounted on the door. This is the most traditional kit and it allows easy access to storage of additional cans or bottles in the refrigerator.

Kegerator Tower Conversion Kits
Beer is dispensed from a tower mounted on the counter top installation. Perfect for “built-in” installations for the at home bar look. You can use an under counter refrigerator or possibly convert a top opening chest-style freezer.

 
Kegerator Conversion Kit Information

Requirements for all Kegerator Conversion Kit


Consistent temperature from the keg to the faucet is critical.  Keep the beer at the keg and in the line to the faucet between 36°-38°F for proper beer dispensing. The beer must never be allowed to “warm up” until it is poured into the glass.
 
The size of the refrigerator or freezer is not important as long as it is large enough to hold a keg of beer. See Keg Size Information for details.

Kegerator Components

CO2 Cylinder
Brand new aluminum 5 lb. CO2 cylinder. Our gas cylinders are “Not Reconditioned” like many kits. In addition, our aluminum CO2 cylinders have extra thick walls for durability. Aluminum is lighter and easier to handle than steel cylinders and do not rust. The cylinder valve is equipped with a self-sealing o-ring assembly. The CO2 cylinder is shipped empty, you will have to find a local gas supplier to fill it (look under "Gas" in your local yellow pages).

Gas Regulator
Quality commercial grade CO2 regulators ensure constant, uniform pressure control – even during peak party time loads! Non-adjustable, patented pressure relief valve (PRV) provides shutdown safety in the event of diaphragm failure.  The PRV is set to blow off pressure at 55-65 psig. Left-hand threaded high pressure ports to prevent low-pressure outlet use. Internal relief valve (when delivery pressure exceeds set pressure by 15 psig), integral quad-ring seal (no washer required), inlet end particle filter.  No leak toggle shut-off. Replaceable seat assembly. Factory pressure tested to insure at home reliability.

Single Gauge Primary Beer Regulator
Top mounted gauge for outlet pressure reading.

Double Gauge Primary Beer Regulator

Top mounted gauge for outlet pressure reading and side mounted gauge for pressure remaining in cylinder.

CO2 Pressure Line
5' vinyl pressure line assembly, brewery approved, odorless and tasteless. Remains flexible, resists cracking.

Keg Coupler - Keg Tap
The keg coupler attaches to the keg valve allowing CO2 gas to enter and beer to exit. We supply our kits with the American “D” system coupler. This is the most popular U.S. lever handle keg coupler design providing simple and reliable tapping. Safety first: built-in pressure relief valve opens if gas pressure is over 55-psi. Easy, one-hand operation.

Beer Faucet - Beer Tap
Premium quality faucet with forged brass body and polished chrome finish.  Quick-acting handle. Ball washer fabricated from PTFE for smooth consistent performance and easy operation beer after beer. A high gloss black plastic faucet knob is included.

Beer Shank
Assembled 5-1/8" long shank, one-piece shank and nipple hose end prevents leaks. Parts included: shank, forged brass locknut, plastic wall flange, coupling nut and snap ring.

Beer Line
5' beer line assembly, brewery approved, odorless and tasteless.  Sanitary mirror finish inside for smooth beer flow. Resists breakdown by cleaning solutions. Factory precision pre-made hose for quick installation with hex nut on one end for coupler connection and open on the other for nipple shank connection.

These kits are fun, and easy to install! And they pay for themselves with the savings generated over cans and bottles.
