Title: Kegging
Post by: Jeff M on March 08, 2013, 07:36:47 pm
So i havent gotten into kegging yet but its probably going to be coming soon, so its time to research.

Does anyone have a good introduction to the hardware aspect of kegging via some article or thread i dont know about?  Id like to know about equipment needed, difference in type of kegs etc, and typical costs when it comes down to buying said equipment.
thanks
Jeff

There are a number of articles from Zymurgy avaliable on the web here for download, but the best general info about equipment and setup of pro systems is the Draft Quality Manual published by the Brewers Association.  (google it to download).  It gives an overview of all of the equipment, terminology, and concepts associated with draft equipment.

It doesn't talk about homebrew set ups (using corny kegs), though.

Jeff,

Morebeer has a couple of great articles for the beginning kegger on what equipment you need and how to use it. I used the first one (pdf file) to get myself going. Once you decide to build a kegerator/keezer don't forget to check out the pimp my system section of this forum for some great ideas and pictures.
