Kegco K309B-2 Dual Faucet Digital Kegerator - Black Matte Cabinet and Door

The Kegco K309B-2 Dual Faucet Kegerator with Black Matte Finish adds digital functionality and a wider available temperature range to one of the best kegerators you can find. It still has all the features you've come to appreciate from other high quality Kegco models, such as attractive styling, a removable built-in drip tray that is easy to clean, a chrome guardrail that prevents glasses from sliding off the top, easy rolling casters and a complete two keg direct draw system. Now you have the ability to see your specific temperature setting and set it easily with the push of a button, in addition to having a wider available temperature range for more precise temperature control. The K309 has Fan-Forced cooling, giving it one of the coldest temperature ranges of any beer dispenser on the market today. The fan helps provide even cooling throughout the unit. Temperature can be set as low as 32 degrees to dispense ice cold beer. The interior of this keg beer cooler is spacious enough to easily hold any full size keg, including Miller kegs, Coors Kegs and rubber kegs. It can also hold up to two 5 Gallon D System kegs or up to three 5 Gallon Cornelius Ball Lock Home Brew kegs, allowing you to dispense more than one beer at a time. It comes with 2 adjustable shelves, allowing you to space them far enough apart to hold 2-liter bottles or gallon jugs. With the wide temperature range available in the K309, you can even use it to store wine!

Comments:This baby is outstanding!!! I could tell as I took it out of the crate that it was built very well. It assembles in no time and everything works amazing. For anyone with foam problems, make sure your pressures and temperatures are in your carbonation range!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
A very nice cooler-dispenser
by:ski (11-29-2013)
ocean shores, wa
Comments:a good looking kererator...love the s/s front. Plenty of room inside tho my 10# co2 tank won't fit in the metal band (for a 5# tank. Really like the digital readout of the temp. setting..one needs to be careful of the small parts. I nearly threw away one of the spacer-cushions for the feet of the chrome guardrail. it was caught in the foam wrapping of the guardrail. Definitely recommend the perlick taps..real quality here. Overall...a very nice kegerator, one you'll be happy to have...especially when the wife gets her refrigerator back.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great kegerator
by:Generik (11-15-2013)

Comments:I purchased this kegerator to replace a countertop height fridge that I had converted to a kegerator a few years back. After using the Kegco model now for a few weeks, the performance is well beyond what I had used in the past.

First thing to mention is the quick shipping. After placing the order I had the kegerator in 5 days. Installation was very easy and there are easy to understand directions on how to assemble the few things that need to be put together. Total assembly took less than an hour including the time to unbox everything.

I opted for the stainless steel tower to replace a chrome tower I already had and find the insulation is very good and helps minimize foaming on that first pour. The insulation is a foam rubber that wraps around the beer lines fairly tightly reducing the air space in the tower. I have consistently gotten excellent pours from this tower with the Perlick faucets I had already had.

The kegerator itself has nice touch controls right at the top of the front. First time plugging it in I noticed it cooled down to running temperature very quickly. Leaving it on overnight should be more than sufficient time to have it cold enough to handle your first keg. There is plenty of room inside and the shelf for the CO2 tank is nice for getting that out of the way.

All in all, I am very happy with this kegerator. It looks great and works extremely well. It definitely chills the kegs much better than my previous 'homemade' kegerator which results in very good pours with a proper head and not 3/4 glassfuls of foam. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great kegerator.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Comments:Pros: everything!
Coins: nothing!

This product out of the box is amazing. Easy setup as well as great construction. The way it is designed the first poor is always cold due to the internal fan. With this product, you get what you pay for! Temp control is great and the chill function are flawless!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Fantastic Product! Amazing Company!
by:Dan (10-25-2013)
Portland, OR
Comments:The kegerator is by far better than any I have owned. It's a solid build and the components supplied by Beverage Factory are top of the line. For example, when I brought the CO2 tank in to be filled, they commented on how great of a tank it was and how others who had purchased kegerators from other retailers have brought in tanks made in China with leaks and expired tank inspection stamps. The unit was a breeze to assemble and could be done by nearly anyone.

I had a slight issue with my CO2 regulator and called about it. A new regulator was sent out immediately, no questions asked. AMAZING customer service!



Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great Value! Highly Recommended
by:Amy & Clyde (09-29-2013)
Mt. Juliet, TN
Comments:- Used in home bar

- Unit: (Pros)
- Overall: This unit is a great value. It's intended as a refrigerator type system, and it delivers on its purpose. It looks great, well designed, great fit and finish and stays at a constant temperature.
- Components: The additional components are of great quality. The lines, tower, couplers, regulator and CO2 tank are all top notch. We like the CO2 tank so much that we requested it be filled instead of replaced at our local welding facility.
- Assembly: We had this unit up and running in about 30 minutes after we filled the CO2 tank and bought the beer. The instructions were very easy to follow.
- Controls: The digital controls on the front of the unit are easily managed and readable. We are very glad that we decided on this feature.
- Performance: This thing consistently pours flawlessly. Once we dialed in the correct pressure with the chosen upgraded regulator (very nice!), we have been very pleased with the pints that we pour.

- Unit: (Cons)
- Drip Tray: The accompanied drip tray is a two-piece plastic unit that functions fine. We would love to have the option for a metal drip tray to be as nice as the rest of the unit.
- CO2 Tank Holder: The clip for the CO2 tank is a "Horseshoe" shaped metal band with small holes on each flared end. This design would be fine if there was a provided way to hold the flared ends somewhat together. My wife and I are using a simple nylon cord with a locking slide. (Think camping chair bag closure)

- Beverage Factory: (Pros)
- Overall: This has been one of the best buying experiences that my wife and I have ever had online or over the phone. Our representative was very knowledgeable. The majorly impressive thing was that when she was stumped by one of our questions, she took the initiative and called us back with an answer that day! From start to finish, Beverage Factory listened to our wants and needs, educated us on the best products and components and has followed up after the sale to make sure everything went smoothly.
- Beverage Factory: (Cons)
- Overall: None to report - this was an awesome experience!!!!

- Recommendation: If you are looking for a double tap unit that works for your home bar, kitchen, man cave or game room, the Kegco K309B-2 ROCKS!!!!! We would recommend upgrading the regulator to the pro unit and the tower/faucets to stainless steel. You will be happy that you did. All-in-all, we are very pleased and will be doing more business with Beverage Factory in the near future.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
BIG! COLD!
by:Brad (09-27-2013)
Dayton, OH
Comments:This was a big purchase for me. Once I knew I was actually buying a fridge (as opposed to converting one) I decided to go ahead and get one that could fit multiple kegs with two faucets. Might as well right! Currently I have a slim quarter and a sixth installed with a little room to spare. I think I could fit 2 slim quarters as the inside of the door is recessed a little. From the outside it is about the size of a dishwasher.

It will take a few days to cool down completely, but then the ambient tempature inside will match the display. I keep it on 33°F with no problems. You can use deep chill for the first few hours when you first put a keg in. Also, you will be fiddling with the regulator some and opening the door alot makes it harder to get cool.

I installed this unit under my workbench in the garage and mounted the tower to my workbench surface. I used a 6" piece of 2" PVC as a spacer and used and upside down shower drain as a flange to attach to the fridge. Multiple lengths of screws are included. I also had just enough room to put foam insulation down inside the PVC around the beer lines. The tower includes nice rubber insulation as well.

Finally, I find it much easier to pour into a pitcher as opposed to straight into a pint glass. There will be a little foam as the beer in the lines in the tower will warm up just a little. It's not enough to tell a temperature difference, just enough to make some foam. I find it's best to "burp" the faucet twice (open/close quickly), then let it run into the pitcher. From there you can make a perfect pour into your frosty pint glass.

Here are my recommended upgrades:
Worm gear hose clamps on CO2 lines (auto parts store)
Dual gauge regulator with dual shutoff valves
Standard 'D' system sankey couplers
Stainless steel tower
Perlick 525SS faucets
Pressurized cleaning kit
Stainless steel drip tray
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Love this Kegerator
by:C. Johnson (08-19-2013)
Valley, AZ
Comments:I recently purchased this kegerator, I am thrilled with it! Easy to set up and pouring cold beer. I like my beer REALLY cold, this unit has an additional fan and digital display for accurate temperature. I am glad I was able to purchase a great unit with out having to spend a ton of money. I upgraded the regulator to a double gauge, I am not that close to an air and gas place, I would hate to run out.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
My friends are jealous!
by:Brewmaster in Training (05-07-2013)
Yardley, PA
Comments:I've been home brewing for a couple years and i got tired of bottling so I decided to give this kegerator a try. It is awesome! I set it up with a couple home brew kegs and now I can pour a glass at a time and it always comes out ice cold. I've found that I'm brewing more and experimenting with my recipes because I can have two kegs on tap and compare tastes right away. It's perfect for a home brewer like me.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
