How to Setup a Kegerator to Serve Nitro Coffee

This video walks you through setting up a kegerator with a stout faucet for serving “nitro coffee”. The video will walk you through setting up a kegerator from start to finish and discusses the type of gas needed and the serving pressure to properly serve cold brew coffee out of a stout faucet – more commonly referred to as “nitro coffee”.

In the video, you’ll learn how to:

– Assemble the kegerator hardware
– Plumb the gas and beverage lines
– Mount the draft tower
– Install the stout faucet
– Connect the gas and liquid lines to the keg
– Type of gas to use for nitro coffee
– Pressure to use when serving nitro coffee
– How to pour with a stout faucet

    Any chance you could do a video on adding another CO2 line? I see you have the newer models of the Edgestar with the large vertical gap where the CO2 comes in.. 🙂

    I love this!  
    Is there an issue if you were to go between coffee and Guinness?

    Bad information. Go with straight Nitrogen, CO2 will give the coffee a sharp, bitter flavor. Also, run your pressure higher; 40-50 psi is better. Most of all, don't buy an Edgestar. Drilling your own holes for the tower? What a POS.

    Do you guys have a smaller tank as shown in the video for the beer gas mixture. I am only finding larger tanks.

    the gas solution is in that one tank? No additional tanks needed? Thanks!

    As a product it should have pre drilled holes for the stout tap instead of it being another tiresome job for the buyer. :/

    Only criticism is that this video suggests to use a co2 nitrogen mix. Co2 makes coffee bitter. You need straight nitrogen and a double dip tube keg.

    Does it works with latte? Or coffee only?

    Hey am I the only one who thinks having to drilling holes in a kegerator is bullshit. Like they had to manufacture minifridges with a massive gaping hole. Why aren't the 4 holds pre drilled. If I have to use an electric drill to install a kegerator I might as well buy a hole saw and a much cheaper minifridge. Am I missing something?

    These units now have pre-drilled holes with countersunk nuts in the top, so you simply have to mount the tower with 4 screws. No more drilling!
