Product Description

SANYO 1.5 KEG BARREL REFRIGERATOR BLACK

Amazon.com

Ideal for home brewers or just regular ol' beer drinkers, this cooler keeps cold brews on tap and ready to pour. With a capacity of 6.5 cubic feet, the cooler holds up to a half-barrel keg and comes with a complete CO2 tap system to get things flowing. The tap system includes a Sankey keg tapper, a type that fits all North American beer kegs; a pressure gauge; a pressure regulator; and an arm, for pulling drafts, that rises out of the cooler's top. A cleaning kit and beer FAQ guide are thrown in for good measure. The cooler's sleek black exterior and compact size (37 inches tall, 23-5/8 inches wide, and 25 inches deep) make it inconspicuous in the corner of a rec room, workroom, or kitchen. However, four casters on this kegerator's bottom let hosts move the unit to where the party is. --Cristina Vaamonde

I chose the Sanyo because I heard the Haier model has problems getting down below 40 degrees. This one has no problems keeping a half barrel ice cold. This is a great looking keg cooler that comes with pretty much eveything you need. The only cons are the vinyl tube clips are cheap plastic that don't get tight enough, and the drip tray is also a cheap plastic tray. I immediately replaced these with metal and just bought a double regulator (it comes with a good Taprite single regulator) so I can gauge the remaining CO2 in the tank.

The Sanyo Beer Cooler really has no competition in it's price range, so they were apparently able to cut corners during manufacturing. First let me say that it dispenses draft beer, so it'll pay for itself in about 6 kegs.

But here are my complaints with it: 1. The door doesn't close perfectly, there's never a tight seal even after trying to clean the gaskets. Which may lead to 2. It doesn't get cold enough. I like my beer somewhat warm, so i't not a huge deal for me, but not everyone does and this can't get cold without leading to problem 3. The inside-back of the fridge FREEZES up. Without a keg in it (or I use soda kegs sometimes) the ice block gets so big there's no way to get a full-size keg in. If you leave a keg in there long enough, the ice will actually form over the keg so you need to break it off to remove keg. It's a pain.

So why did I give it 4 stars? Because there's nothing else I can recommend for the same price. And you get fresh DRAFT beer at 1/2 the price of canned or bottled and don't have to worry about recycling or going to the liquor store every weekend.

This Sanyo kegerator is a great little fridge. It has the capacity for a 1/2 barrel keg with the include 5# CO2 cylinder inside if you want to get a keg from your local liquor store, or you can use it for 5 gal corny kegs filled with homebrew. You can fit two standard corny kegs side by side in the fridge with the CO2 bottle. There is floorspace for 4 corny kegs or 3 & the CO2 bottle, but the top of the fridge in the back dips down about an inch too low to fit a corny keg under it. Easiest solution is to chop off half of the rubber handle on the corny keg and you can fit in two front to back with a full 6 gal carboy & airlock next to them or another corny keg. It works great for lagering and is a pretty good unit overall. The CO2 regulator that is included is single gauge (dispense pressure) but a second gauge for CO2 bottle pressure can easily be attached.

it is a good beer dispenser, very cold beer, nice looking unit. most of the parts are good quality. had the haier(spelling issue) unit before, always had problems. this sanyo, so far, has exceeded the expectations. the larger cooling panel is very helpful and needed. the only complaint I have is the shipping. unit arrived very beat up and battered. not sanyo nor amazon's fault, just a common problem with anything shipped UPS. will attempt to get a resolution to that in the comming days. I will keep you posted. other very minor complaints, screw holes are not lined up well at all. you will be best advised to tap your own holes before screwing anything down. instructions are rather poor. if you don't already know about kegorators you will not know how to run this, research co2 adjustments and pressures first. the castors on the bottom should be locking. easy enough replacement if you have any handyman ability. but manufacturer should have thought about that first. and as you've read in other reviews, the drip pan is extremely half arsed and cheap.

This kegerator comes with everything necessary to get started. You get the fridge, tap, a NA sankey coupler and a line cleaning kit.
The fridge gets as cold as you want and regulates the temperature well. I have been serving quality german beer out of this thing (Warsteiner) and everyone loves it. You cannot get more pimp for this little money, when I have people over they are blown away. OK I am a guy and the people that come by are some of the guys but you know! That being said this is not industrial grade bar hardware but then again you are not paying those prices. This easily holds 1/2 barrel kegs (AKA full kegs because they are the what bars use etc) and if you get different couplers, you can get exotic beers and run them. The instructions say that if you do not want the NA sankey adaptor (The one for nearly every beer in the US) you can send it in and they will give you the one of your choice. Nice!
Stuff that you should get as accessories:
Now the secret to non foamy beer is proper temperature and pressure and as this unit comes you get neither of these measured. I recommend getting a low pressure gauge for the regulator (it comes only with the high pressure that measures your co2 tank and the low pressure one is key to knowing what pressure the keg is at.) and a thermometer inside. If you go to kegworks they sell all of this plus a good grate to catch spillover.

Your first beer of the day is going to have a bit of foam and this is necessary and expected. Even at bars they run the lines first in the day. Unless you have an expensive glycol line cooler you will never get no foam on first pour. Also the tap warms up after non use so that foams it a bit too. If you just put the first glass down for a min, it settles.
