First Time Kegger

Post by ChrisBeerBoy »

Hi
After noticing that almost everyone except me seems to keg their beer, I feel it necessary to make this my step in upgrading my kit and join in the fun.

Does anyone have any recommendations of where to buy all the equipment, or just general advice/tips/precautions. I need it all...

Thanks

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Great. Does anyone have any experience with the mini Co2 regulators. What are the drawbacks if any?

CO2 is proportionally more expensive in small bottles. Buying a full size bottle will cost around £20 with a £20 deposit, this will last at least a year. Normal CO2 regulators are in the £30 range. I can't see the point of using smaller bottles unless taking beer to a party etc.

We will soon be ordering some o rings for the kegs - watch the forum. Suggest you buy a few sets of these as they will be handy. You will also need beer line, 3/8 john guest connectors, a picnic tap, grey (gas) and black (beer) disconnects etc. These can all be had from the malt miller, or ebay. Also some PBW cleaner to throroughly clean the kegs and star san to sanitise.
cheers

I like to keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake, which I also keep handy.
