WoW member and long-time homebrewer Steve Keck recently launched a new device designed for homebrewers and beer geeks. The product, called Kegtron, is a wireless keg monitor which enables you to keep track of beers on tap from your phone or tablet.
“I’ve been kegging for many years, but once I had stepped up to a packed, multi-tap kegerator I found it was pretty challenging to get a good estimate of what was left. I also didn’t want to stir up sediment by shaking kegs” says Steve. As a career hardware engineer, he figured this was a solvable problem. Many nights and weekends later, Kegtron was born.
Kegtron launched this week on Kickstarter. “I felt that if we could get reasonable purchase volumes all at one time it would bring down the cost for everyone” says Steve. The Kickstarter campaign runs through the end of May with shipments starting in August 2018.
