Kegco Two Tap Kegerator Review
Kegco’s dual tap kegerator conversion kit is one of the best on the market, and it includes everything you need to transform any old refrigerator into a beer dispenser.
With this kit, you can forget about trying to be MacGyver and going the DIY route.
Along with a detailed set of instructions, each kit includes:
The included couplers are what connect the keg to the beer line and air line, which allows CO2 to enter and beer to exit out of the keg.
NSF approved, lever handle keg couplers feature stainless steel probes and nickel-plated brass bodies. These couples are compatible with all Sankey kegs that use the American D system.
The lever-handle design is the real star of the show here. To couple the keg, just pull out and down on the handle. The model features a 55-psi pressure relief valve. This valve allows over-pressurized gas to leave the tank before entering the keg.
Dual Gauge Regulator
A commercial grade, NSF approved dual gauge regulator is also included, which is designed to deliver consistent peak performance even when used in more demanding, commercial environments.
The T-style adjustment valve also allows you to adjust the keg’s pressure. The dual gauges let you know how much CO2 pressure is inside the keg and also how much CO2 gas is left in your tank.
Door-Mounted Drip Tray
The drip tray is a nice added feature that helps keep your dispensing area – and your floor – clean. The 10” wide tray is made entirely of stainless steel for durability and easy cleaning, and mounts to the door for added convenience.
When you’re ready to clean, simply remove the top vent and go to town.
It should be noted that this drip tray does not have a drain, so you’ll need to empty it manually.
4-1/8” Nipple Shank
The included 4-1/8” forged brass beer shanks have a compression ring on the bank and a blank flange on the front. This design makes it easy to attach the shank to the beer line and your mounting surface (i.e. the fridge).
All shanks have a fitted tail piece that that connects to a 3/16” ID beer line.
Cleaning Kit and Tank
The Ultimate kit is the only kit from Kegco that comes with a hand pump, pressurized cleaning kit. This essential tool offers a quick and easy way to clean your beer lines.
Included in the kit is a nylon brush, 1/2-gallon cleaning bottle and beer line cleaner.
The Ultimate kit also comes with an empty, 5-pound CO2 tank for your convenience. The tank is made of durable aluminum alloy, which is lightweight and rust-resistant.
Beer Lines and Chrome Faucet
To complete this kit, you’ll also receive two beer lines and two chrome faucets. The classic faucet designs add to the look and appeal of your newly-converted refrigerator, and the beer lines allow you to get started without having to buy anything extra.

While installation is relatively easy, having an extra pair of hands can help move things along faster.
- Some shipments have missing parts
Some users have complained of missing parts with shipments. But this is a common problem with any product that requires assembly and comes with loose parts. Kegco’s customer service is always helpful and ships out any missing parts promptly.
A handful of users had some issues with the pressure gauge being off, but customer service said the issue was likely caused by damage during shipment. A new gauge was sent out right away.

Installation is fairly simple, all components are high quality, and the kit comes with everything you need to get started. Plus, the price is exceptionally affordable, especially when compared to the cost of buying each piece individually.
