The KOMOS Wine Kegerator is nearly identical to it's beer-serving brethren, with one key difference—this unit comes ready for use with Nitrogen gas. Each kegerator includes an adapter to use the KOMOS CO2 regulator with a Nitrogen gas cylinder, allowing you to serve from a keg without carbonating the wine. This is a perfect option for winemakers that like the appeal of packaging their wine into a single vessel, and want to enjoy a single glass (or several) without opening a bottle.
Serving with Nitrogen
Draft systems are an under-utilized convenience in the winemaking world, and perhaps that's due to fact that most home draft systems on the market are set up to use Carbon Dioxide. CO2 is used in everything from beer to soda pop to give it that signature effervescence. Most styles of wine, of course, are served flat, and pushing wine through a draft system with CO2 will eventually carbonate the wine. Nitrogen, on the other hand, will not dissolve into solution the same way CO2 does, and will have no effect on the wine. With the same homebrew-style "Corny" kegs that brewers use, you can package your finished batch of wine in one or multiple kegs, and enjoy the pleasure of pouring yourself a glass straight from the tap.
The KOMOS Wine Kegerator is not limited to just wine. You can mix and match the lines to serve a variety of beverages. Nitrogen is also perfect for cold brew coffee or stout beers, and with a separate CO2 tank and additional regulator, you can serve carbonated beverages like beer, seltzer, or soda.
Please note that the kegerator only includes one regulator and does not include a nitrogen cylinder. An empty nitrogen tank can be added to your order above. If you plan to use two different types of gas, you will need to purchase a second regulator and gas cylinder.
NukaTap Forward Sealing Faucets
NukaTap is the newest brand of forward sealing faucets that boast a lower thermal mass for reduced first pour foam. They feature a "nuke-shaped" internal shuttle that is made from TPV, which provides superior laminar flow to further reduce foaming issues. If you prefer all stainless steel components in your beer faucet, we would suggest the kegerator configuration that comes with Intertap faucets. All faucet spout attachments and accessories are cross compatible between Intertap and NukaTap.
The KOMOS Kegerator offers a stunning set of features that clearly separate this unit as the most modern kegerator on the market. With more interior space than other models, the KOMOS Kegerator is designed to fit up to four 5-gallon Slimline Torpedo kegs or Pepsi-style Ball Lock Corny kegs. Whether you choose the single, double, triple, or quad tap configuration, you'll receive tried-and-true Intertap stainless steel forward-sealing faucets. Stainless faucets are a huge upgrade over the chrome-plated brass faucets commonly included with other kegerators, and you'll quickly recognize the quality of a forward-sealing beer faucet compared to the standard taps seen at your local tavern or in-law's mancave. Rather than a chrome plated tower, the Intertap faucets are mounted to a stainless steel tower that remains cool before, during, and after each pour thanks to a tower fan diverter that recirculates cold air within the kegerator and blows it up into the tower to keep your beer lines cold and reduce foaming. From keg to faucet, your beer will pass through EVABarrier draft lines, a premium double-walled tubing designed to protect against beer oxidation. And with Duotight push-to-connect fittings, you'll have your lines connected in a snap with no need to force the tubing over barb fittings or fiddle with hose clamps. Other features you'll love about the KOMOS Kegerator include its highly-efficient cooling capacity so you'll be serving ice cold beer even in the warmest temperatures, extra wide temperature range from 26–82°F, dual gas inlets at the back, stainless steel internal floor, rolling casters, and the included KOMOS Dual Gauge CO2 regulator.
NukaTap Stainless Faucets and Towers
All kegerators come with either NukaTap faucets for mounting on the stainless tower. NukaTap is the newest brand of forward sealing faucets that boast a lower thermal mass for reduced first pour foam. They feature a "nuke-shaped" internal shuttle that is made from TPV, which provides superior laminar flow to further reduce foaming issues. If you prefer all stainless steel components in your beer faucet, we would suggest the kegerator configuration that comes with Intertap faucets. All faucet spout attachments and accessories are cross compatible between Intertap and NukaTap. Forward-sealing means that while in the closed position the faucet will keep beer in it instead of draining out. This keeps the internal parts from getting sticky and reduces the chance of off flavors transferring to your beer while you pour. The modular, threaded spout can fit a variety of attachments including a growler filler or stout spout. This model includes the all stainless faucet which we think is a must have upgrade over chrome plated brass.
