How to Keg Cold Brew Coffee
Why Keg Your Cold Brew Coffee?
Making your own cold brew coffee at home is a great way to save money and time. By kegging your cold brew, you can keep it for up to a month in the fridge, which makes it very convenient. Plus, you can serve it directly from a tap or with a nitro system to give it that extra boost of flavor and creaminess.
What You Need to Keg Cold Brew Coffee
In order to keg your cold brew coffee, you need a few key components: a keg, a CO2 regulator, a CO2 tank, a beer line, a tap and a faucet. Make sure you have all of these items before you start.
The Brewing Process
The first step in kegging cold brew coffee is to brew it. The process is fairly simple: just combine cold water with your favorite coffee grounds and let it steep for at least 12 hours. Strain it through a coffee filter or cheesecloth and you have cold brew coffee!
Kegging the Cold Brew Coffee
Once the cold brew is ready, it’s time to keg it. First, sanitize the keg and all of the components that will come into contact with the cold brew. Next, attach the CO2 regulator to the CO2 tank and the beer line to the keg. Connect the beer line to the tap and the tap to the faucet. Finally, pour the cold brew into the keg and attach the lid.
Serving the Cold Brew
Once the cold brew is in the keg, you can begin to serve it. Turn on the CO2 tank and adjust the regulator to the desired pressure. Then, open the tap and the cold brew will begin to flow. You can serve it straight up or with a nitro system for extra creaminess and flavor. Enjoy!
