Kegging your beer can save you countless time and effort that would be spent cleaning, filling and capping bottles. Under the right circumstances and with the right equipment your homebrew will be easier to store and you can control the carbonation levels to suit the various kinds of beer that you brew without guesswork.
If you already have the dispensing system in place for commercial beer, the cost of kegging is very little indeed. You will need the following:
A place to store and serve the beer cold
A keg to put the beer in
A carbon dioxide carbonating and dispense system
(See Pressure System)
Fittings to allow you to carbonate and dispense from kegs
A beer faucet or tap to dispense the beer into your glass
(See Dispense Equipment)
The primary issue after cold storage is the keg to carbonate and store the beer in. The most common type used by home brewers is the Cornelius Keg that was commonly used to dispense soda.
Cornelius Kegs are easy to find, easy to clean and replacement parts and accessories are readily available. Most homebrew supply stores and mail order suppliers have the kegs and the parts.
