Step by Step: Balancing Your Kegerator Draft System – new updates, more details, new carb chart

I had the pleasure of attending the HomebrewCon held in Grand Rapids, Michigan several years ago.  If you didn’t have the chance to go, or even if you did, the AHA provides seminar recordings for that conference.  In fact they provide recordings going all the way back to 2012’s conference.  This is a member’s only benefit.  If you’re not a member of the AHA, I think you should consider joining.  Access to conference materials is only one of many benefits.  Join nowLooking for a deal?

Room Temperature Kegging – Kegging WITHOUT a Refrigerator or Freezer?

I periodically get questions along these lines… can I keg without a refrigerator?

Well, the answer is, sure you can.  But, as with many things, just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should.

Balancing an Un-chilled System

The warmer your beer is, the less apt it is to absorb CO2.  As temperature rises so does the pressure required to maintain carbonation.  Let’s say your storage area is your basement and it stays at about 64 degrees Fahrenheit and you want something like 2.2 volumes of carbonation.  A reasonable carbonation level for an American ale,  Considering this example, you’d need to keep your CO2 regulator set to about 18 PSI.  If you use 3/16″ ID tubing, you’d need somewhere between 6 and 12 feet of tubing [See: Step by Step Balancing Your Kegerator Draft System] to offset that pressure for a decent pour.  I haven’t tried it, but my gut feeling is you’d be closer to 12 feet if not more.  Lots of tubing.  If there’s much of a temperature differential between the bottom and top of the keg, it may result in CO2 coming out of solution in that long length of tubing, causing excessive foaming, even if your system is balanced.  This can happen even in a chilled kegerator [See: Kegerator Beer Line Temperatures & Reducing Foam with a Recirculating Fan] so it’s certainly a possibility for a room temperature setup.

Of course you can tweak this scenario with different numbers and maybe it looks better for you.

Temperature Swings = Bad Pours

If temperature varies in the spot that you’re keeping your un-refrigerated keg the setup will be even more temperamental especially at points when it’s warmer.  Something like.. It’s hot outside today, my beer is going to be all foam.

– Manual pressure relief valve

– Picnic tap assembly with 4′ of thickwall beer line and MFL fitting

This is the bare bones kit. You can add any of the options to augment your kegging system.

The gauge guard is a great way to protect your regulator and highly recommended here at AIH, please consider that option!

We know some homebrewers are more picky than others, so please keep in mind that these are USED kegs. Some of these kegs are probably 30 years old. Do not expect new kegs. If you are looking for new kegs, please check out our new kegs. We try and have quality kegs available at all times. With this said, they are going to show normal wear and tear. We are not implying that our kegs are not quality…we just want to avoid any misunderstandings.

If you are unhappy with your used 5 Gallon Cornelius Kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back. The purchaser will be responsible for return shipping charges.
