  • Hi, how much would it cost for the whole gear to setup as 2 tap system for the Fridge. I do have my own fridge. And also how much would it cost to ship it to Christchurch? Thank you.

    Hi Rahul -
    Here are some prices to plumb things into a bar fridge and have 2 taps.
    Note your fridge will have to have space for 17.5cm width and 65cm high keg + connections. Its basically about $360 for one 10L keg setup with attacments to have a tap on the outside of your fridge. If you want a 2nd leg and tap its about $300 on top of that. Extra keg setup, beer line, tap, gas line split for 2 kegs etc. You would need a gas source too - Either: 16 gram canisters @ $29 a box of 10. OR Soda stream cylinder adapter @ $29  + your own soda stream bottle - or we have large ones here for $55 Let me know if this works for you. Cheers

  • Hello, Do you guys supply all the gear we would need to install a beer system like in your video onto a fridge. I already have a small beer fridge but it has a freezer at the top and draw at the bottom so after you allow all of this it is about 380mm high x 330mm wide. Would this fit a standard keg you buy from a shop or would we need another fridge? We would ideally want 2 taps if that wont work even one is fine. I am building a house next year that I wont to put another system in a full size fridge and run some lines through a wall so fridge is in garage but tap is in my pool room. Once I have this finalized ill contact you guys again for parts. For now just need help with the little bar fridge.

    Hi Ricky -
    Yes we can supply everything you need as a custom package.
    Your fridge sounds like it would only be big enough to fit 2 of our small 5L kegs.  With connections they come out at 36cm high. Our mini kegs can be filled at any brewry tap rooms or any bottle shop that does fills. If you want to send an image through of the fridge with doors open I can confirm things for you. As for the full system in the new house we can help with that for sure - you would need insulated lines through the wall but all pretty easy in the end and it would look pretty sharp too! Cheers.
