Installing the Mini kegerator

Installation

Carefully unpack all parts.

Place the unit on a flat and level surface. It will work best in a room temperature environment (70°F), away from the sun and other heat sources, and with 3” of clearance between all sides of the unit and other objects for ventilation.

Install the drip tray by sliding it partially underneath the main unit

(align the “tab” sticking out of the drip tray assembly with the notch in the underside of the main unit).

Install the dispenser handle by screwing it onto the dispenser head. There is also a circular top that magnetically attaches directly to the top of the dispenser handle. Place this on the dispenser handle.

Now select the appropriate power cord (three prong grounded 115V or the 12V DC plug [cigarette lighter adapter]). Plug the power cord into the back of the unit, and then plug the other end into your power source. Check to make sure the unit is on by looking at the

LED in front of the unit. If the LED is lit, your unit is powered up.

We suggest you clean the lines prior to tapping your first mini keg, and cleaning them again after every mini keg.

Note that this mini kegerator ships with the connections to tap and enjoy Heineken® brand DraughtKeg™ 5 Liter mini kegs. This is the most popular and widely-available 5 Liter mini keg. Heineken® brand DraughtKeg™ 5 Liter mini kegs are already pressurized and need no additional CO2 to tap them. With the optional upgrade kit, you can tap and enjoy all commercially available 5 Liter mini kegs.

IMPORTANT: Do not remove any safety, warning, or product information labels from your mini kegerator.

General instructions

Regardless of the brand of 5-liter mini keg, here are the basic steps for tapping it:

1.Chill your kegalthough this mini kegerator has a cooling plate that will cool your keg, best results will come from a keg that is already cooled to drinking temperaturethis way, the cooling plate only has to keep your keg cool.

2.Follow the instructions on the mini keg to eliminate excess gas or pressure.

3.Connect the beer line to the correct dispenser head and tap the keg (use the included head for Heineken brand DraughtKeg™ 5 Liter mini kegs; use the optional head for all other brands)

4.Connect the gas lines (if using the optional head for nonpressurized 5 Liter mini kegs)

5.Try a test pour to ensure that the beer is flowing freely. If the test pour is good, then you may begin to enjoy!

Note that you may experience a lot of foam shortly after tapping the mini keg. If you wait 15-20 minutes after tapping, the foam should lessen. Additionally, pours with the spout fully open should deliver less foam than pours with the spout only partially open.

To put the mini keg into the mini kegerator:

1.Open the mini kegerator door by depressing the button located on the upper right-hand side of the door.

2.Gently put the mini keg on the cold plate. You may find it helpful to hook the line(s) up to the mini keg while it is slightly outside the unit.

To turn the light on and off:

1.If the light is off press the light button to turn on the light.

2.If the light is on press the light button to turn the light off.

Non-pressurized Accessory Kit Part Descriptions

The following section describes the parts of the optional TBC50-ACC Accessory Kit (sold separately) and their purposes.

1.Non-Pressurized Tap - Using a piercing tube, this tap is to be inserted

into a non-pressurized keg. Beer and CO2 lines are located at the top. It is good practice to wet the piercing tube to lubricate before tapping the minikeg. Once the mini-keg has been tapped, secure the tap assembly onto the top of the mini-keg using the spring-loaded catch.

2.Cartridge Stand - Used to elevate the cartridge holder and regulator to fit in the unit's side compartment.

3.Cleaning Bottle - Used with non-pressurized tap assembly and CO2 to flush out the beer lines with cleaning solution (see pg. 11). EdgeStar recommends using the cleaning bottle that came with your mini-kegerator to conserve CO2.

4.CO2 Cartridge - 16g food grade CO2 cartridges. This provides the propellant necessary to pressurize your mini-keg. Do not use BB

gun/paintball CO2 cartridges - These often have some oil mixed in with the CO2.

5.Regulator - Used to increase/decrease the flow of CO2. Please reference the chart on pg. 11 of your TBC50 manual for pressure suggestions.

6.Rubber Ring - When tapping your non-pressurized keg, you will need

to insert the tap into this ring and then into the keg. This will prevent CO2 from escaping the tap set up.

7.CO2 Releaser - Used to depressurize kegs. (Note: You may not need to depressurize certain kegs. Please follow keg instructions.)

8.CO2 Adapter - Screws into cartridge holder and pierces cartridge. Once the adapter is screwed in, do not unscrew until the CO2 cartridge is completely empty, otherwise it will leak out.

9.CO2 Cartridge Holder - Holds CO2 cartridge in place so that it can be pierced by CO2 adapter. The holder sits in the cartridge stand.

WARNING

The accessory kit is not a toy. Keep out of the reach of children. CO2 Cartridges are under pressure. ANY MISUSE MAY CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY. DO NOT over-tighten the CO2 components. DO NOT discharge CO2 cartridges towards face or body or place them near heat.

Non-pressurized Mini Keg Tapping Instructions

Note that the following instructions refer to optional accessory kit (sold separately). Visit kegerator.com for more information and/or to place an order for the optional accessories.

Most 5 Liter mini kegs are “non-pressurized”- though the kegs are shipped with minimal pressure inside to ensure the freshness of the beer, once they are opened, all the pressure escapes and they must be served with gravity (poured), or by re-pressurizing them (in this case, with CO2).

All non-pressurized mini kegs must use the optional accessory kit’s non-pressurized mini keg tap, shown following:

Beer line connects here (beer flows out this connector)

Piercing tube (goes into the mini keg)

A few notes on usage of the above tap:

Before piercing the plug on the top of the keg, you must always follow the instructions marked on the keg to eliminate the excess gas and ensure that the keg has remained still long enough to avoid foaming from the ventilation opening.

It’s a good idea to wet the “piercing tube” with a little water prior to tapping a mini keg. This will lubricate the tube.

Drive the piercing tube soundly through the rubber ring and into the mini keg when tapping it, and then secure the tap assembly onto the top of the mini keg with the spring-loaded catch.

7

Tapping the different types of non-pressurized kegs:

There are several different types of non-pressurized 5 Liter kegs available. The mini kegs mainly differ in the type of “bung” (plug) sealing the top of the mini keg. It is into this bung that the mini kegs are tapped.

a) Mini keg with rubber plug:

This type of plug allows you to tap the keg with the piercing tube by screwing the piercing tube into the rubber bungsimply drive the tube down the center of the bungthe center piece will fall harmlessly into the beer.

b) Mini keg with combined plug:

This type of plug requires the pressurized air to be expelled from the keg before tapping it. Read and comply with the instructions on the mini keg. Then pull vigorously on the below-pictured part, revealing the second part of the plug. Next drive the piercing tube down the center of the bungthe center piece will fall harmlessly into the beer.

c) Mini keg with vent plug:

It is difficult to tell the difference between this type of bung and the above type (combined plug).

This type of plug requires the pressurized air to be expelled from the keg before tapping it. Read and comply with the instructions on the mini keg. Then pull vigorously on the below-pictured part, revealing the second part of the plug. Now use a tool (not included) to cut/remove the remaining part of the bung. If part of the bung falls into the beer, this will not cause any health risks or affect the flavor of the beer. Now fit the yellow-orange all-purpose plug (received with the optional spare parts) into the hole in the mini keg. Finally, drive the piercing tube down the center of this plug. (Note: make sure to retrieve, wash, and save this plug for future use when you are done with this mini keg.)

d) Other types of mini kegs:

For most other types of mini kegs, you can remove the bung and replace it with the yellow-orange all-purpose plug (received with the optional spare parts). Then drive the piercing tube down the center of this plug. (Note: make sure to retrieve, wash, and save this plug for future use when you are done with this mini keg.)

Installing the beer line and Connecting the CO2

Now that you have tapped your non-pressurized mini keg, you need to connect the beer line and CO2 supply.

To connect the beer line: insert the “male” end of the beer line in the mini kegerator to the “female” receptacle on the tap.

EdgeStar Mini Kegerator

Connecting the CO2:

Open the compartment located on the right-hand side of the mini kegerator.

Make sure that the pressure gauge valve is closed (to close the valve, turn it counter-clockwise).

Attach the pressure gauge on the end piece of the 16g adapter.

Insert the 16g CO2 cartridge in the long part of the adapter.

Screw the two parts of the adapter together.

Note: once you screw this assembly together with a 16g CO2 cartridge, do not unscrew it until the cartridge is emptyor all remaining CO2 will rush out

Do not use BB gun/paintball CO2 cartridgesthese often have some oil mixed in with the CO2.

Make sure to close the regulator if you want to remove the tap from the mini-keg.

To replace the CO2 cartridge, close the regulator, unscrew the current cartridge, and reinstall a new cartridge.

Screw the gas cartridge fully home on the pressure gauge.

Connect the hose by driving it home into the regulator (To check that the hose is correctly connected, try to remove it by gently tugging on it. Resistance indicates that the hose is correctly connected. If you really want to disconnect the hose, push down the metallic end-piece while pulling the hose).

Place the assembly on its support and place the entire assembly into the compartment located on the right-hand side of the mini kegerator.

Connect the CO2 line to the tapped mini keg (the “female” end of the line coming from the mini kegerator connects to the “male” connector on the mini keg tap)

Turn the dial on the regulator clockwise to begin the flow of CO2. Check the chart under “Tips for Best Results” for pressure suggestions.

9

Removing the CO2 line and mini keg

Once your mini keg is consumed, you need to shut off the CO2 and remove the keg.

Open the compartment located on the right-hand side of the mini kegerator.

Shut off the regulator (turn the knob counter-clockwise).

Put a container under the dispenser and pour off any remaining beer (this will also relieve some of the pressure in the mini keg).

Open the mini kegerator main door and disconnect the CO2 line and beer line.

Empty the remaining CO2 from the mini keg with the CO2 releaser as shown:

Undo the tap from the mini keg by releasing the catch (on the top of the tap) and pulling it up and out of the mini keg):

Rinse the tap out under running water. You should also clean it with a mild detergent solution and rinse it thoroughly.

Clean the lines as directed in the under “Cleaning and Maintenance” section.

Note that the optional accessories include a cleaning kit that uses CO2 pressure to force the cleaning solution through the lines. To use this system, fill the cleaning kit half full with your choice of cleaning solution (water mixed with a bit of beer line cleaner, baking soda, or white vinegar), connect it to the unit as if it were a non-pressurized mini keg, and pour out all of the solution. Make sure to rinse the lines again!

Tips for Best Results

1.For best results, use clean glasses. Rinsing the glasses with cold water prior to pouring can deliver better results (less foam).

2.Hold the glass at an angle under the dispenser. Do not touch the nozzle of the dispenser to the glass.

3.Pull the dispenser handle towards you to start the flow of beer. Open the dispenser up all the way to get the maximum flow rate (this will decrease foam).

4.Slowly tip the glass upright as it fills.

5.Gently ease the dispenser handle back to the “closed” position as the foam nears the lip of the glass.

6.Enjoy your beer!

Note: If you are enjoying a non-pressurized mini keg, you may adjust the pressure for maximum enjoyment. Here are our suggestions:

Cleaning and Maintenance

You should clean the lines after every mini keg.

Cleaning the lines

Before tapping your first mini keg, and after each mini keg, clean the lines.

1.Fill the “Squeeze bottle” cleaning kit half full of water. Add a small amount of detergent, baking soda, white vinegar, or beer line cleaner. Mix the mixture thoroughly.

2.Attach the nozzle of the squeeze bottle to the beer line. Place a cup or bowl underneath the beer dispenser.

3.Squeeze the bottle while opening the dispenser all the way, forcing the cleaning mixture through the beer line and into the cup/bowl beneath the nozzle.

4.Once all the mixture has run through the line, rinse out the squeeze bottle.

5.Refill the squeeze bottle with water and repeat the above process with water until the lines are clear of cleaning solution.

Cleaning the Mini Kegerator

For cleaning the other parts of the unit, a damp cloth with a mild detergent solution is suggested.
