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.
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.Read more ›
