Greetings all - from the reading I have been doing on here this seems like a great resource!
A few question for the Kegerator gurus.
I have a Beverage Air BM23 on order with dual taps - supposed to ship 7/30. I understand it ships still needing a few items to make it 'pour ready'.
I am looking for the groups input on the best direction/products to buy.
From the reading I have done, it looks like the Perlick 525 faucets are the way to go. I do plan on pouring Guinness so I will also plan on getting one of the stout style faucets as well. I understand Perlick makes a regulator style faucet, but I prefer to pour an 'original' style pint of Guinness - its my session beer. Is the 525 the way to go or is there something better? Who makes the best stout style faucet?
For regulators, I will have the need to pour two 'normal' beers (non-nitrogen), as well as have the ability to pour a 'normal' beer and the Guinness. It looks like the best/easiest setup would be to buy a dual product regulator and get a separate regulator for the nitrogen blend setup. Which brand of regulators should I pick up? It looks like Taprite is a popular brand? Anything better?
Couplers - it looks like I should pick up the U-style for the Guinness and perhaps 2 D-couplers for the 'normal' brew. Any particular brands or thoughts on couplers?
Last, but not least, with this type of setup, what kind of hose and other fittings should I be picking up to complete the setup?
Thanks again guys & gals - looking forward to becoming a part of the community.
