    Great Kegerator! Great Price!

    |
    Posted .

    I do home-brew and have done a lot of research to try to find a good kegerator for my home-brew. This one did everything I wanted and was the best price, even better than the one Costco carries. If you want to use for home-brew you will have to buy some adaptors to fit it to your home-brew (corny) kegs. I spent about $30 at my local home-brew store getting everything I needed to convert it. This kegerator is a great combination of reasonable size and lots of inside space. First off you can easily fit 2 corny kegs and have room for a few 6 packs or what I do is keep about 8 chilled mugs ready for serving. I plan to add a third tap at some point because there is enough room (barely) for 3 corny's or 2 full corny's and one smaller keg you can set on the shelf where the CO2 tank goes (I keep my CO2 tank on the outside). There are 4 nice caster wheels on the bottom that make moving it around easy, 2 of them lock to keep it from moving around. Overall I highly recommend this! I got it on a deal of the day for under $400 and it shows up on deal of the day every once in a while. There is a single tap one also if you only want one type of brew but I highly recommend the 2 tap so you have the option of multiple brews.

    I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He loves it and we both get to pick out one of our favorite beers when we go to replace the kegs. You can't beat the price. I would recommend this for my friends and family!

    Nice kegerator for two “sixth kegs”....easily gets to 33-34 degrees. One improvement would be Perlick Faucets - easy change down the road.....regulator is nice easy adjustment for perfect pour minimal foam. Give it a try, you’ll like it!

    Really enjoying this product, everything in description has performed as expected. Just keep psi between 10- 12 and you'll get a great consistent draw. Set my temperature at my preference and it's been rock solid. Very nice flash sale purchase

    Very happy, works great. Planning some upgrades

    Posted .

    I am replacing a single tap micromatic kegerator. This was a great price and was delivered faster than promised. Packaging was good and after reading some of the reviews, I made sure there were no scratches or dings and there were none. The unit is nice looking and looks like great quality. Assembly was easy and all parts were there. Instructions we not the greatest, but I was able to get it done. I had to exchange my CO2 tank for a full one (cost only $15.00) at the local welding supply store. Sad to see my shiny new tank go, but I mounted the tank inside the fridge, so no one sees it. I added a second gauge from Amazon ($12.00) to the regulator that monitors the tanks pressure. I do not want to run out of gas on a Friday night and this was much cheaper than buying a second CO2 tank. So far I am getting a little foam when I pour the first beer off each line, so I am planning on getting longer lines for the taps. From everything I have read online, a tower cooler and longer beer lines are the only way to reduce this common issue. Two 5 gallon slim kegs fit with plenty of room to spare.

    Easy setup and works great

    I have only had it for a few days but set up was easy and package was complete with everything except beer and Co2. I was a little worried about a few reviews regarding noise but my unit is very quite, thus far. I'm glad I bought this through Best Buy as the first one was damaged so returning it to the store was easy and painless. I would recommend this course of purchase. So far, we are very happy with this product.

    Nice tap for two beverages

    |
    Posted .

    We've been pretty pleased with our 2-tap Kegerator. My husband is a hard cider drinker and I like beer, so 2-taps allows us to both have our favorite beverages ready to dispense. We found it relatively easy to assemble the hardware. It comes with an optional set of casters for the bottom, so you can wheel it around. The hoses and taps all look to be of good quality. It's nice that they provide a away to mount the CO2 tank on the outside as well as the inside of the fridge. The temp setting is a bit fussy to set and you'll need to provide your own thermometer. But once you figure out where to set the dial, it stays pretty close to that temp. TIP:// Have it shipped to the store for pick-up. It gets palletized for shipping. If shipped to your door, it does not and will likely show up damaged. Our friends had theirs shipped to their house and both times, it arrived with major shipping damage.

    Solid Kegerator

    Posted .

    Don't get me wrong, it pours beer and looks nice but it’s not perfect. Below are some “First World” problems/comments/fixes 1. The instructions are absolutely awful and there are no videos online on how to assemble. Most of it is common sense but as to where or if a gasket is required who knows. I put a gasket where the beer and co2 lines attach to the keg. You will have lots of extra parts leftover. 2. I had no leaks in my beer and co2 lines but my friend did. Probably has to do with number 1. Before you tap your beer, open your co2 bottle and with a soapy water solution check for leaks. Tighten what you need to make it go away. If you don’t do this is will wake up the next day with a dry co2 tank and depending on #6 you could be really screwed. 3. The co2 regulator is the cheapest model you can buy. It doesn't tell you your input pressure (the pressure in your tank). This is important so you know if your co2 pressure is low and needs replacement. Since it is a single regulator, you can’t have two different beers that require different pressure on tap at the same time (well technically you can but they don’t play nicely together and you will not enjoy it.) What I recommend you upgrade to is a dual tap co2 regulator. They sell them at kegworks and amazon for about $95. They fit inside no problem, have individual shut offs, and work sooooo much better. 4. Although it states it doesn't fit miller and coors kegs, it does only if you get the non-rubber topped ones. The rubber is similar to a non-skid truck lining on top and makes it too tall to fit in your kegerator. I always bring a measuring tape with me to make sure. 5. You will get a lot of foam on your first pour and if there is a long wait between pours. This is because your beer lines that are in your dual tap tower are warmer and as the beer passes through you get significant foaming. Don’t worry! This is common on all types of tower kegs. This is how you fix it: a). Just keep pouring beer so the lines never get warm or b). buy a kegerator tower cooler off of amazon for about $50. Route it through your external co2 line and plug it in the wall. Works great. 6. Your 5 lb co2 tank ships empty. Start looking for places the fill co2. Some have a 1 week turnaround so you may want to buy another 5 lb tank on amazon and keep them cycling. Also don't be scammed when you fill it up. 99.99% of co2 is food safe co2, most companies market it as such just to increase the price. 7. This is a good kegerator if you get it for a good price. The good price will allow you to do some upgrades. I was able to get mine for $425 with free delivery due to a sale on appliances at Best Buy. I purchased it on father’s day. You can use a 20% off coupon and get a discount too. 8. This will not "save" you money on beer. If you don't believe me do the math. The only way you could possible save money is to buy full kegs, run only 1 tap, and only drink domestic beer. It more of a cool novelty and an easy way to make more friends.

    Great but not perfect...

    Posted .

    I feel compelled to share my experience, especially after reading the Q&A section regarding use of 2 kegs in the cooler. The instruction book shows the following in regards to which kegs can fit inside. If you are unsure of what these look like, go to kegerator.com and look up keg sizes to see accurate pictures. 1. You can fit only (1) 1/2 Barrel Keg (typical size almost all bars and restaurants use for on tap beer) 2. You can fit (2) 1/6 Barrel Kegs 3. You can fit (1) 1/4 Barrel Slim and (1) 1/6 Barrel Keg 4. You can fit (1) 1/4 Barrel (Pony) which is short but wide ***5. You can fit (2) 1/4 Barrel Slim Kegs (Take note - the gasket does not make full contact and is roughly 1/4 inch from closing. I personally used duct tape in 3 areas (bottom,middle,top) and this is keeping the door completely closed and sealed). Obviously, I can't store mugs or glasses inside anymore because I'd rather keep (2) 1/4 Slim kegs than (1) 1/6 and (1) 1/4 keg and some mugs mainly because your beer selection opens more when you go up to the 1/4 size kegs. If the manufacturer used just a bit more material and made the depth maybe a 1/2 inch deeper, 2 would fit and the door would close no problem!! **** Besides this, the only thing I am having issues with are the faucets. If you go a few days without any pours, they seem to "seize" up and it takes a bit of strength to get them to "break" open to allow you to pour beer. For me, I have it set to level 5, but I also built a small air box inside to circulate the air. Once I put this custom box inside with USB Fans, it helped out a lot! I hope this helps someone, because between reading reviews and the Q&A, there didn't seem to be accurate details on this. Other than what I mentioned above, I must say that as if having beer at home, didn't make us lazy before, having a kegerator takes our laziness to a whole new level. The fact that I can just grab a mug and fill it up, makes me feel super lazy, but I love it! Hope this helps everyone reading!

    Nice mid-level kegerator

    |
    Posted .

    The kegerator arrived in a reasonable amount of time... or should I say that the wrong one arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Getting Best Buy to correct their error and get the right one shipped out was a rather challenging adventure involving numerous calls with long wait times and support staff that seemed like their priority was getting me off the phone and out of their hair. Ultimately, it seemed that a few FaceBook posts on the Best Buy site is what had the most impact in getting the issue straightened out. In the long run, the first (incorrect) kegerator arrived 1 week after ordering and the replacement (correct) one arrived 10 days after that. The final (correct) kegerator arrived with the box a little beat up with a few holes punched in it and upon unpacking I found the Styrofoam packing on the corners and the bottom to have been broken a bit but there was no apparent damage to the kegerator and, after all, that is the important part. Assembly took about 40 minutes and there were instructions (in english) enclosed which listed the parts and how they were to be assembled so the assembly went well and without any hitches. When installing the wheels, I did note that there were numerous other screws on the bottom the cooler that were very loose and required re-tightening and a couple were put in crooked to begin with which made them a bit harder to really tighten down so be sure when assembling, plan on checking all other screws you see even if not directly related to the assembly itself. The CO2 and the tap lines are all overly generous with respects to the length to whit I'll most likely be trimming them back once the unit is in full use so there's not an excessive amount of excess lines to mess with. While there is a bracket which can be attached to the back of the cooler to hold the CO2 canister I opted to use the small shelf in the interior to set the CO2 canister on, thus allowing me to get the cooler as close as possible to the wall and not stick out too far. Once assembled, even with the CO2 canister inside, I was able to fit two standard 1/4 barrel slim kegs inside and the door still closed easily and completely. Using at least one 1/6 barrel slim instead of one of the 1/4's then allows enough room to place an additional six-pack or 3 (if stacked) or a bottle or two of some other beverage. Overall, this seems like a nice enough unit. It's running quietly and keeping the beer nice and cold. My primary reason for scoring it 4 out of 5 stars is primarily due to the 'plastic-y quality' that it has. The drip tray and top grate are plastic as is the top of the cooler. Even after tightening the tower screws as much as I dare, you can still move the top of the tower back and forth about a half inch or so. You dare not even consider putting any sort of heavy weighted items on the top - especially near the front as you can easily press down on the front center of the top and see the plastic top sag under the weight. So, just keep in mind that this is a residential unit and not really meant for any sort of commercial or heavy use. The old unit I replaced was sturdy enough to where I had no second thoughts of jumping on top to reach the ceiling if I needed to but this unit I wouldn't even consider doing that with. I paid $419 for mine (supposedly on sale from $549). The $419 I would pay, but at $549 I would consider it to be overpriced for the quality of the unit.

    This is my most prized possession. Great for party's bbq's and get togethers. I read all reviews before purchasing and some were true and some were false. Temperature is very cold in high setting I bought a thermometer and highest setting is constant 27 degrees makes for a perfect beer. Nothing pleases me more then coming home to a perfectly cold beer to take off the edge. I did find a local shop that sold me longer beer lines to help with foaming issues. I recommend changing out to 7ft of line. After this adjustment and realizing the keg has to settle before pouring immediately out of your truck during transport has proven to solve all foaming issues. Great buy, crowd pleaser, always the topic of any get together. Best purchase I've made in the last five years.

    Kegs are more work than I thought

    |
    Posted .

    The product is great...double barrel draft action is great for my family and friends - but it is not less expensive than buying cases of beer. It takes upkeep...make sure you can find a CO2 supplier, order a beer line cleaner kit and make sure you can get the thin kegs in the brand you want...product is very good I love it but it's not plug and play...I mean plug and drink...

    For the price this is hard to beat, especially if you get it during a flash sale. If you follow instructions and have patience it works great. Can fit a full 1/2 keg, 2 1/6 kegs, or a 1/6 and a 1/4 slim keg. Not sure it could fit two 1/4 slims. 6 is the coldest setting for the temp gauge, not 1, I keep mine around 4/5 and that seems best. The PSI says put it at 10-12 but I have had the best luck with keeping foam down by using 7-9 PSI. Get a tower cooler off Amazon, only about $40 and it keeps the lines in the tower cold so the temp change doesn't foam the beer during pouring. I filled my CO2 tank at a local beer store for $14, do not overpay. Once you bring the keg/kegs home put them in the kegerator but do not attach anything and let them sit/settle and cool all day or over night. Doing some of these above things will help lead to a much more enjoyable experience.

    Duel tabs is key.

    Posted .

    It was damaged when it arrived (plastic around the frame). Customer service desk at Best Buy was no help. I worked out a deal with the appliance section to keep the Kegerator. The CO2 tank was low quality but the didn't matter because I swapped it out at a welding supply place for another one full of CO2 for less than 24 bucks. Putting it together was easy, it rolls in place nicely and I would recommend keeping the CO2 inside the Kegerator not putting it outside although that is doable with this model. Duel tabs are key, it fits 2 1/6 kegs with plenty of room. Kegs are easy to install and replace. Beer is cold and I have the pressure around 6-8 psi to reduce any foam. I have the temp down to 2 and it is nice a quiet in fact I don't even hear it.

    I purchased this kegerator after building my own (which never worked out like I had hoped). Finally decided it was time to get a professional model. Wanted two taps - one for beer and one for kombucha and/or sparkling water. Now - everyone is happy! Was delivered in good packaging, took about 30 minutes to assemble (once we filled the tank) and works great. Keeps the beverages cold. I like that you can either store the CO2 tanks inside the fridge or on the back (if you want more space inside). I'm using it with two 1/6 kegs. In this setup, there is no room for any other beverages. Keep an eye out for sales, found mine on a Deal of the Day and saved a few $$$.

    Good quality overall, problems with Thermostat

    |
    Posted .

    The unit appears to be of good quality overall, and suitable for my needs as a home brewer. When the unit arrived I plugged it in and set it to max cool as instructed for the first 48 hours. The unit appeared to be operational, and at that time I discarded the original packaging. What I did not realize was that the unit's internal thermostat was not operational. The unit compressor continued to run continuously regardless of where the thermostat was set to, with the exception of off. The end result was frozen beer. I contacted the manufacturer for guidance. They referred me to Best Buy for return instructions. I wanted to arrange an exchange, a new unit sent out, and I would use the original packaging to facilitate returning my defective unit. The problem I ran into was the product appeared to discontinued, with no inventory remaining in the Best Buy system. This left me with the option of trying to cobble up some packaging on my own to return the unit, or keep the defective unit. I opted for keeping the defective unit, and using it in conjunction with a sensitive temperature controller. This works well, but cost me around $80 for my work around. If I ever want the thermostat fixed, it appears that will be on me.
