Build Your Own iKegger Package

We have designed this page to make it quick and easy to build an iKegger package that suits your needs. We have found that people new to kegging or brewing or who are buying a gift miss things out of their order. By using this format you will ensure that you have all the bits and pieces that often get overlooked. We have tried to make it as simple as possible to understand what the options are and why we have given them to you. Each step is separate so you can skip any that don't apply to you.

  • If you have any questions while going through the form below just click the live chat button in the bottom corner and we'll be happy to help.
  • If someone isn't available within 2 minutes it will ask for your email address (you will be chatting with the same staff who pack and send your gear so we may be busy) . Simply enter your email, ask any questions you have and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible either on the chat or by email.

  • Buying a Gift? No idea what to get? We have gift cards available that will be emailed to you instantly to forward to the receiver.

Step 1: Choose Your Fermenter (First Step For Homebrewers)

The fermenter is where you change your wort (sugar water made from grains and hops boiled together) to beer by adding yeast. The yeast converts the sugar to alcohol and carbon dioxide. In a standard bucket the carbon dioxide escapes through a valve so you need to add more CO2 once fermentation is complete to carbonate the brew. With a pressure fermenter and the filling kit (in accessories at he bottom, which includes an adjustable pressure relief valve) you can keep exactly as much of the produced CO2 as you need to carbonate the beer as it brews, meaning when it finishes fermenting all you have to do is chill and drink it! If you already have a fermenter that you are happy with just skip this step or are not looking to brew your own beverages you can just skip this step.

Basic Fermenter - Bucket Type

A bucket style fermenter is the way most people start brewing, they are cheap & simple to clean but missing some features that make the pressure fermenters easier, faster and more reliable to use.

It consists of a 30L smooth walled bucket with tap and lid. The lid has a grommet and airlock (fill with water and it allows gas to leave the bucket but nothing to enter while brewing) and a thermometer sticker.

The filling kit can not be used with this fermenter

Sold out

Pressure Fermenter - The Jr

This is our small basic pressure fermenter, capable of brewing batches up to 18L (you need some extra space while brewing as it foams up).

Pressure fermenters are able to hold CO2 pressure in rather than release it which has many benefits.

The lid has a gas-in and liquid-out quick connection to allow connection of lines, taps and as fittings.

You can use this as a keg and drink directly from it once the brew is finished if you choose.

Sold out

Pressure Fermenter - V3 Snub

This larger (35L) pressure fermenter allows you to do anything the smaller pressure fermenter does with some additional features.

It has a thermowell down the centre that allows inserting a thermometer in the centre of the brew for accurate reading. The conical shape also reduces the amount of sediment in contact with your brew for reduced yeasty flavours.

The steel frame can be used as shown or inverted for a lower height that fits into kegerator fridges for temperature control.

Sold out

Step 2: Choose Large Home Kegs (Optional: Connect 50L Commercial keg)

  • The storage vessels are where you keep your beer till you are ready to drink it, they can be the only kegs you use or you may add smaller kegs for the left over brew, filling at bars, taking with you etc.
  • All our equipment can also be used to pour from 50L commercial kegs. If that's what you are after you don't need a keg, just the coupler that goes on top of the keg and then all the other gear we sell will connect to that (make sure to choose the coupler with the ball lock posts).
    • A Type Coupler: Tooheys, Coopers, XXXX, and most Craft Breweries kegs
    • D Type Coupler: Carlton Draught, CUB, Fosters & VB Kegs
    • S Type Coupler: Asahi, Heineken, Hofbrau Kegs
  • The 10L keg requires a separate spear making it a little more expensive than a 19L keg which has the connections built in. The 20L fermenter also makes a great storage keg with a floating diptube so you can even use it lying down.

Note: With homebrew you can leave your brew in storage kegs somewhere cool (like a cupboard, garage etc) after filling and transfer to a smaller keg to chill and serve from your fridge if you don't have a beer fridge large enough for big kegs.

Step 3: Choose Mini Portable Kegs (Filling At Breweries or Taking Home Brew Out)

These are perfect for taking your homebrew out and about with you, whether that is to the backyard, a mates place or just to the couch.

  • All the options below come with a keg spear (the lid which has gas and liquid posts and a pressure release valve). This allows using the same gas and liquid connections, taps etc as fit onto the pressure fermenters and storage kegs so you can mix and match the system to suit you each day.
  • We recommend getting the filling kit from the fermenter section if you want to fill a small keg from a larger one or from a pressure fermenter.
  • The filling kit also allows you to leave a large keg connected to a small keg in the fridge with the tap on the small keg. The small keg will always be full and ready to disconnect and take with you. The large will empty 1st so you can clean and refill it while finishing off the small keg.
  • The premium black kegs have double wall insulation and will stay cold for up to 10 hours without being in a fridge or esky (this depends on environment, it will be less in full sun on a 40 deg day at the beach)
  • We recommend getting the mini regulator to use with one of these but you could also use the large regulator and a sodastream gas bottle for a moderately portable system.
  • For sizing see this page under "Keg Dimensions"

Step 4: Choose Your Taps (Optional: Make A Kegerator or Jockey Box)

Here you can choose how you want to pour your brew out of your kegs once you are ready to drink it. All taps work on all kegs and both pressure fermenters. You can either have taps directly on the kegs, on the front of a fridge (or esky), or on a bar or benchtop. You will need to add one tap for each keg you want on tap at the same time but you can mix and match (for example you can have 2 taps on shanks for the home fridge and then add a pluto gun for portable beers)

  • If choosing the direct connected flow control tap you will need either the plastic or steel connection to connect it to the keg post
  • You can choose to add a stout spout to the flow control tap, this is great for pouring stouts or nitro coffee (if you get a nitro gas system)
  • Building through a fridge door or esky - choose either flow control or standard tap. You need one unit for each keg you want on tap simultaneously.
  • Building a bar top font - choose either standard or flow control taps, you can have up to 3 taps on one font, all connections are included.
  • Sizing for all the kegs, including the height with the different taps attached can be found on this page by scrolling down to "Keg Dimensions"
  • You can also remove the taps at any point and swap them from keg to keg as valves prevent any lost gas or liquid. This also means you can store kegs lying down and just connect the tap when you want to pour a drink if height is an issue.
  • Taps Directly Attached To The Keg
  • Make A Kegerator, Jockey Box or Bar

Step 5: Add your CO2 Regulator (To Push Liquid Out The Tap)

Here you can choose which regulator you want to use. The regulator reduces the high pressure of the liquid CO2 in a gas bottle or bulb down to a usable pressure that you can set depending on what you are carbonating or dispensing. For more information see this page about force carbonating and brewing under pressure.

If you have added a portable keg or want your entire system to be more portable the mini regulator is perfect for dispensing on the go, it can use disposable bulbs or a sodastream gas bottle.

    • 1 x 16g bulb dispenses around 4L
    • 1 x 25g CO2 bulb will dispense around 6L
    • 1 x 400g Sodatream bottle dispenses around 60L
    • Use the drop down lists to choose direct connection or remote connection of up to 2 kegs connected at the same time. The remote connection includes a one way valve to enable you to use the keg lying down, do not attempt it without that in place.
Sold out

We recommend using a large regulator and 2.6kg gas bottle (available in the following section) ($99 initially, ) for your home system as the gas is much cheaper than other options, you can also use a 400g sodastream gas bottle with this regulator for an easily swappable option ($35 initially, $19 to swap everywhere)

    • A 400g sodastream bottle will dispense around 60L or carbonate and dispense around 30-40L depending on style of drink.
    • A 2.6kg bottle will dispense around 400L or carbonate and dispense around 200L.
    • Use the drop down menu to choose to have up to 4 kegs connected to the regulator at the same time

Step 6: Add Gas Sources (Optional)

These items can be sourced locally if you choose and you will need to find a local company to refill a 2.6kg gas bottle if you get one of them. A map with many CO2 refill places can be found here.

Step 7: Accessories, Cleaning, Drip Trays etc (Optional)

The add-ons that make life just that bit easier, cleaner and more comfortable.

Pressure Fermenter Filling Kit

While not absolutely needed we recommend you add the filling package when getting a pressure fermenter OR if you intend to transfer from one keg to another.

It allows you to use the CO2 produced during brewing to carbonate, transfer under pressure to kegs (or from keg to keg) which stops loss of carbonation and foaming during transfer. It also removes the chance of contamination from oxygen or bacteria during filling and automatically stops filling once they are full. This is worth it to save a lot of time plus money wasted on buying CO2 gas.

Sold out

Drip Tray For Any Situation

These high quality stainless drip trays are a great help, otherwise keep a cloth on hand.

Wrap Around: suits the font tower

Mounted: for fridge doors and eskies

Rectangular: for using with a keg alone

Sold out

Insulating Carry Sleeves For Mini Kegs

These add about an hours coldness to your drinks in a standard keg and have a carry strap and pockets for gas bulbs so make it super convienient to take your mini keg out and about. They also fit the insulated black kegs but will not greatly afffect their already impressive insulating ability (of up to 10 hours)

Sold out

Cleaning and Care Package

This package includes a no rinse sanitiser for every day usage for all your gear to prevent bacterial growth. It also includes a deep cleaner to use if sediment etc gets caked onto vessels, lines etc. There is lubricant to extend the life of your seals and make connecting and removing accessories easier. There is also a spare set of o-rings that cover most of the ones in our gear.
