Many of our customers are interested in getting a kegerator for work functions, staff rooms or the man cave but are unsure on the set up when they are not home brewers. By default, our kegerators are designed for ball lock kegs intended for home brewers, but if you are looking to purchase commercial beers with D-Type connections, or are using D-Type kegs, this guide should make the set up simple for running both.
Kegerators generally only fit one 50L commercial keg, so this has become a standard option for our single tap kegerator.

Hopefully this guide makes adopting your set up for commercial use a bit easier.
