Introducing the Micro-Matic Dual Zone Kegerator. Finally, a kegerator that gives beer connoisseurs and wine enthusiasts more control over serving temperatures when you have multiple beverages on tap.
This is a much needed addition to the kegerator choices on the market today. There are many different applications where having two separate temperature zones can be useful.
Out of the box, these units are configured to control two zones for red and white wine. The specs state that these units can hold white wines in zone 1 at 42-48 F and red wines in zone 2 at 55-65 F. I called to confirm that these temperature ranges could be adjusted outside those stated in the specs and Micro-Matic responded that…
“Each zone’s temperature setting can be overridden and set to what ever temperature you desire. The temperature ranges listed in the specs are a preset for wine dispensing, but they can be adjusted to colder settings for other beverages such as beer.”
This is good news for homebrewers and beer drinkers wanting to dispense different styles at home. Homebrewers can actually use one side as a fermentation chamber ( for yeast starters, primary/secondary fermentation, cold crashing, diacetyl rests, conditioning) and the other side for dispensing. For those of us always wanting two or more beers on tap, the option to adjust temperatures for different beer styles gets very exciting. You can serve your Lagers, Kolsch and Wits at an ice cold temperature on one side and your Pale Ales, Porters and IPAs closer to cellaring temperatures on the other.
These dual zone kegerators are built with commercial grade materials and are extremely durable. The 1-1/2″ thick top, floor and side walls are foamed in place with high density, CFC-free polyurethane to keep temperatures stable. Below is a test done on each zone to show the liquid and air temperature changes over time.
It has a four keg capacity and can be used for beer, wine or whatever you have in the keg. You can buy these dual zone kegerators as a base fridge and build from there or buy them with up to 4 faucet towers. They come with permanently mounted casters and feature an 18 gauge stainless steel top, 22 gauge solid doors, 24 gauge steel front, sides and back. Ventilation is in the back of the unit, so the noise is low.
These Pro-Line Micro-Matic kegerators aren’t cheap and they have good reason to not be. They are built with commercial grade materials. They even have a 4 year warranty on the compressor. Consider the costs of buying separate units and equipment if you are trying to dispense wine or beer at different temperatures. This may be to kegerator you have been looking for. If not, maybe your garage is looking for this kegerator.
