Homebrew Kegging Setups
Kegging and dispensing home made beer is preferred by many home brewers today because it is simple and convenient. Although not as portable compared to bottled beer (unless you also have a jockey box), a keg system is great especially if you are going to throw a party.
A homebrewing kegging system is made up of different components including a Carbon dioxide or Nitrogen tank, regulator, Cornelius keg, gas and beverage hoses, quick disconnects, taps and a refrigerator, just to name a few. This system works by dispensing beer using pressure from the gas inside the Carbon dioxide or Nitrogen tank. Most beer is dispensed at 8 to 15 PSI, but you can adjust the pressure depending on your preferences.
You can buy a complete kegging setup from a home brewing supply store or you can build one yourself. If you are just beginning to keg your own beer, purchasing complete setups can help to eliminate the guess work as to what you need to purchase. Another great thing about a kegging setup is not only can you store your beer the keg, but you can also carbonate your homebrew during storage by adjusting the pressure.
At Canuck Homebrew Supply, we have a wide variety of kegging setups that you may purchase. Our kegging setups come with all tubing and hardware needed. However, they do not come with Carbon dioxide tanks or the Cornelius keg(s), so you will have to buy them separately. We also have dispensing hardware, conversion kits and couplers for those wanting to dispense from commercial/Sanke kegs.
