Update: SYNEK Systems Countertop Kegerator – Kickstarter Goal Exceeded


The SYNEK Draft System is a complete countertop draft beer system.

The system uses a cartridges to hold beer, both commercial and homebrew.  The cartridges hold 128 ounces or the equivalent of two standard growlers.  These are a patent pending, flexible and multi layered design.  These are designed from the ground up to hold pressure and keep out oxygen.

The built in refrigeration system includes a digital thermostat, CO2 pressure system and an adjustable pressure regulator to manage carbonation.  The system will take up about as much countertop space as a standard size toaster oven.  You’ll also get a filling adapter and drip tray. 

Check out the SYNEK Draft System Kickstarter Page for complete details, additional photos.

If you haven’t checked lately… SYNEK Draft System has blown away their Kickstarter Goal.

I had a chance to view the prototype at NHC in Grand Rapids, MI a couple of weeks ago.  It is a sharp looking unit.  Chatting with the guys behind it, the Kickstarter price is very close to their estimation of production cost.

I’m a big fan of the Tap a Draft system.  I’ve used it to keg small batches and for portable serving.  This would also work well as a main kegging system if you’re tight on space.

Reader Tip: 5L Mini Kegs – Pros, Cons and Tips

After seeing yesterday’s post Portable Beer Serving Options!  HBF Reader Timothy pointed out the fact that I did not include 5L Mini Kegs in that post.  Good point!  That oversight has been fixed.  Timothy went on to gives some pros, cons and tips.  Those follow.

from Timothy:
I grabbed a couple of these last summer when I wanted to take some homebrew on a week-long sailing trip. I’ve also used it for keg-conditioning small batches. I have one in my fridge (regular fridge with all the food) right now with a yummy rye pale.

Pros:

  • Lightweight, stainless, stackable, looks great.
  • Don’t need the CO2 tap, can serve via gravity with the twist-tap.
  • Can buy a few commercially produced beers (Bell’s, Rogue, Widmer, some imports) in the same kegs for nearly the same price as new empty ones. Free beer!

Cons:

  • The bungs cost extra, and entirely necessary. And a pain to remove for cleaning.
  • When you add the CO2 tap, it’s a little expensive compared to Tap-A-Draft. Midwest sells a kit with the tap and 4 kegs at a decent price.

Tips:

  • Always minimize the CO2 pressure when not in use. I’ve had problems with CO2 leakage otherwise.
  • Turn the tap nozzle upwards after pouring, unless you like beer dripping in the fridge floor.
  • Store the plastic insert for the bung with the lip on the inside of the keg. It’s meant to be pushed out when you insert the tap stem. It makes the bung harder to remove if the lip is on the outside.
