  • Cooling beer lines outside of Kegarator

    built a bar in my basement and I'm looking to make some modifications to my kegarator set up. I'm going to move the refrigeration unit to my storage room and leave my taps mounted on bar top to free up some room under the bar. I figure it's going to be 15-20 foot run of lines outside of kegarator, any recommendations on how to achieve this? Obviously trying to keep beer as cold as possible as cost effectively as possible. I've seen the glycol systems but not sure I want to invest $800-$1000. Any help would be appreciated.

    Glycol is all you can do with that length.
    What I have: Haier two tap, 525 faucets, tower cooler, 10' lines

      If it was a larger commercial refrigerator you could do a forced air setup. But with a standard kegerator air blower would probably suck all your cold air out of unit .
      What I got:
      Beverage Air #BM23
      with a "Sexy" Double Faucet Tower and Celli Eurpean Faucets
      -MM Premium Double Guage Primary Regulator
      -MM Premium 2 Product Secondary Regulator
      -MM S/S Keg Couplers

        Gotta go with glycol. Even with a commercial walk-in, you are pushing the limit with your distance. 25' is limit on air-cooled system in the commercial realm. Any 90 degree turn in the run is equal to 5' additional distance.
