Homebrew Kegging Parts

There are many ways to store your homebrew. The most traditional way of doing so involves priming, filling the bottle with beer, and capping. However, this process can be time consuming, thus many opt for kegging. Kegging is a faster and easier way to store and dispense your homemade beer. It allows home brewers to keep beer inside big containers called kegs so that they can draw the amount of draft beer anytime by pushing up or down on the handle of the tap.

Although convenient, a keg is not as portable as compared with storing beer in bottles as you cannot always take a keg over to your friend's house. If that is the case, you can always use a special tool called a counter pressure filler so that you can bottle beer from the keg.

If you opt for kegging, you could build a kegging system or kegerator. A kegging system requires several basic components which include the CO2 (or other type of gas) tank, regulator, keg, gas hose, dispensing hose, quick disconnect, tap and refrigerator. (more info below)
It is important for the CO2 tank to have enough carbon dioxide in order to carbonate your keg. Take your empty tank to a local beverage or fire extinguisher supplier to fill it with carbon dioxide. Make sure that the tank's temperature settles to ambient room temperature before you attach the regulator. The connection should be free from leaks for proper carbonation.
