With a few simple changes, you can easily convert your kegerator from a beer to kombucha pour. It’s important to note that kombucha is more acidic than beer and the supplies you’ll need will mostly be due to this. For a basic kombucha conversion you will need the following:
- CO2 tank
- CO2 regulator
- Stainless steel kegerator shank and faucet (to prevent corrosion from acidity)
- Air line
- Barrier tubing to replace the beer lines*
Once you have set up your kegerator, we recommend you keep your kombucha chilled between 37 and 40 degrees. Anything higher than 42 degrees will lead to you having foamy kombucha pours.
*Although many kombucha companies say the standard beer lines will work fine, we recommend barrier tubing because it will hold up the acidity and strong flavor of the kombucha while also allowing less oxygen to permeate the line.
