DIY Draft: Step-By-Step Kegerator PlansYou can buy a ready-built kegerator, but with a price tag that usually exceeds $700, you’re spending a lot of money to buy a fresher beer. Luckily, theres a better way to get a draft system in your home.

There’s nothing quite like a freshly poured beer from a draft system, but for most of us draft beer has been a pleasure that you only get at bars and restaurants. That’s a shame, because kegged beer is a cheaper, fresher, better preserved product. To top it off, some craft breweries also offer beers in kegs that they don’t sell in bottles or cans.

The job isn’t done quite yet. Draft systems require a whole lot of maintenance to make sure the beer is tasting great. Ideally, bars and restaurants should be cleaning their draft systems every two weeks and replacing components regularly. If they fail to do so, you may end up with funky off-flavors in your beer. Lines left uncleaned are susceptible to build-up of crud which can harbor yeast and bacteria that can make your beer taste musty, buttery, or sour. Yuck.

Home Bar Draft System

Our home draft system is nearly complete, but we have one challenge left to overcome. The refrigerator will keep the beer in our kegs cold, but air in a refrigerator tends to stratify—that is, the cool air sinks and the hot air rises. As of now, the beer suspended in the lines of the tower will be far warmer than the air below. Without a way to cool the tower, the warm beer coming out of the faucet will instantly foam up. We repurposed the fan from an old computer that was gathering dust in the attic as the heart of our cooling system.

You can buy a ready-built kegerator, but with a price tag that usually exceeds $700, you’re spending a lot of money to buy a fresher beer. Luckily, theres a better way to get a draft system in your home.

In any draft system, you’ve got six main components: cooler, keg, coupler, gas, tubing, and faucet—it can get more complex, but that’s the basic setup. These six pieces all work together in a delicate harmony to ensure that the beer served to you is properly chilled and carbonated, with an appropriate foamy head. Here’s how it all breaks down.

The system detailed above is held in a delicate balance, hinging on the amount of pressure that’s applied to the keg as it relates to the resistance imposed by tubing, gravity, and other hardware like faucets and couplers. The temperature and amount of carbonation in the beer matter too. So it’s actually super easy to screw up. A system with too much or too little applied carbon dioxide pressure will produce foamy pours and kegs that are overcarbonated or super-flat—all things that cost the bar or restaurant money and leave the customer with a less-than-perfect beer.

If the system is dialed in properly, beer will pour from the taps at about two ounces per second. When proper carbonation has been maintained, it’s easy to form an appropriate head of 1-2 fingers atop your glass and little beer is wasted to foaming.

The stainless-steel tower of the system is relatively heavy, so reinforce the plastic lid with some plywood. Use a pair of pliers to break off the ridges on the bottom of the lid and then sand them down. By removing the ridges you allow the plywood to mount flush to the plastic lid. Use the ridges to locate the center of the spot where you want to mount the tower, and drill a small pilot hole there.

Run a 1-inch wide length of vinyl hose up into the tower and down to the cooling box, which rests on the compressor hump of the fridge (with the power line slipped through the drainage hole in the back of the fridge). When the cooling box gets plugged in, the fan sucks the cold air out of the bottom of the fridge and forces it up through the vinyl tube and into the tower to keep the beer in the lines cool. With the cooling system in place, reattach the lid, filling in the area around the PVC pipe with Great Stuff window and door foam. The brand name isn’t important, but be careful not to select an insulating foam that expands too much or you risk damaging the fridge. Use a silicone caulk to reglue the lid back on the top of the fridge.
