So yesterday we had a quick look around for a bar fridge that would fit 4 of our mini kegs in it just out of interest...
However being fairly impulsive as soon as we found one we went ahead and bought it, took it home and 1 hour later had a fully functioning kegerator with 4 taps and 30L capacity (2 x 10L kegs and 2 x 5L kegs) set up in the iKegger office!
Below we have listed the components that were put into it and we will update this with more detailed instructions soon!
Note: This fridge will not fit 19L Corny Kegs in it, it is however perfect for having a larger selection of drinks on tap in a small area. For instance you could have 5L of Nitro Cold Brew Coffee for the morning, 2 x 10L of Beer Kegs for the afternoon on CO2 and 5L of Espresso Martini on a Nitro tap for after work!
The only actual construction work involved is drilling 4 evenly spaced holes for the taps through the fridge door, after that it was just a matter of tightening the clamps on all the beer and gas line connections, filling the kegs and turning the fridge and gas on... One hour after starting we were drinking beer on tap in the office!
If you want a nitro and co2 system you will need 2 regulators and 2 gas bottles as pictured below, 2 of the kegs are hooked up to CO2 from a sodastream bottle (centre) and 2 onto a 2.2L disposable N2 bottle (in the door)

So we decided that the Fermentasaurus is a great bit of brewing kit at a really good price. It has basically the same feature set as a stainless conical fermenter in that you can remove the trub without exposing your brew to air or having to rack it to another container.
It is also fantastic in that you can ferment under pressure and also use it as a keg!
The one thing it lacks when compared to say to say a Grainfather or SS Brewtech Conical is the ability to control the temperature during fermentation unless you put the whole thing in a fridge...
Well we decided to fix that!
So by now you’ve probably seen “cold drip” or “cold brew” coffee popping up in your local cafes. And now the latest craze of “nitro coffee” So what are they and why should you care?
We show you how to make your own cold brew coffee, nitro coffee and espresso martinis on TAP!
Launched in 2013 Tap King looked like being a decent option for people wanting to have beer on tap at home. After buying the plastic dispenser and a 3.2L disposable plastic bottles of a select range of beers you simply took them home, chilled them and then attached them to the dispenser to have beer on tap in the fridge.
On paper I'm sure their marketing team thought it sounded like a good idea. I don't know of a single beer drinker who wouldn't want "frosty cold, perfectly poured beer" on tap in their kitchen, bbq area or home bar.
