How To Choose The Right Outdoor Kegerator?
When hot seasons come, outdoor and pool parties are something we must experience. And the key factor to have a fun party lies beyond its drink.
Outdoor kegerators are becoming more popular nowadays. Many rich families are having the demand to enjoy their drinks outside next to the pool or on the porch instead of drinking inside. Some luxurious hotels will include a kegerator in your room if you book it.
Of course, buying an outdoor kegerator is not simple at all unlike your mini indoor kegerator. There are many factors you need to pay attention to if you want to pick the best kegerator for you.
Now the most significant difference is that an outdoor kegerator is designed to be placed outside. For that reason, it should be able to stand against the weather (all weather changes and conditions). This also makes an outdoor kegerator stands out compared to other kegerators. In order to be able to withstand the weather, your outdoor kegerator needs to have a stainless steel cover. Not only they look nice but they will save you a lot in the long term.
A kegerator made of stainless steel will of course have a high initial cost. But you shouldn’t be worry about you kegerator’s degrade. On the other hand, those made of chrome plates or plastic with paint will lose their quality quickly especially if you live in a place with sudden weather changes.
Ask yourself where you are going to put your kegerator. Do you have enough space? Will it take up too much space? Estimate and choose the right size for your house.
It is also vital to decide which type of keg you are going to use. Maybe you will need to visit nearby supermarkets and see which size of kegs they are selling and make sure that they have your favorite drink. Buy a kegerator which is compatible for that keg size. You also should buy a kegerator which can store more than one keg at once so that you won’t have to wait for the new keg to chill down after the previous keg runs out. Keeping a keg in your kegerator is also better than leaving it outside. Low temperature will slow down the development of the germs and keep your beer fresh for a long time.
If your kegerator is designed to dispense one keg at a time only, you can simply buy two smaller kegs. You’ll be able to carry less weight while having two kegs ready in your kegerator.
Stick with external thermostat
The outside weather could be hot, cold wet and you don’t want to open the door every time you need to check or adjust your thermostat. Just imagine a wind blowing dusts and insects in your kegerator when you open the door. The cleaning job takes a long time and is frustrating. For that reason, you should stick to kegerators which have their thermostat outside for easy adjustments. The only time when you need to open the door is when you replace your keg.
