I immediately made a batch of cold brew and was impressed by the cascading foam. However, I noticed that the foam dissipated rather quickly. I contacted Royal Brew's customer support and they quickly replied and informed me that I had neglected to add an o-ring to the connection between the spear part. I went back and added this and it seemed to help quite a bit. I continued experimenting and found that adding any source of dairy - whether goat milk, cow milk, half-and-half, or pure cream significantly increased the foam stability (foam is a suspension of air in liquid).
The N2O cartridges add a sweet almost metallic taste to the brew which can be both desirable and undesirable - pending the palate. I rather enjoy the sweet nature of the N2O when there's a dairy source in there but not when it's just black brew. I ordered the N2 cartridges from NitroPress and tried those instead and found I much prefer the taste to the N2O cartridges. Alas, they are also much more expensive. I decided to break the numbers down to see how much I'm truly saving by using this tap vs continuing my Starbucks splurge.
Cost of keg after tax = $153.03
Cost of one 12 oz. nitro cold brew from Starbucks = $5.45
= ~28 cold brews from Starbucks to pay off the keg itself
Now, this is not factoring in the cost of cartridges or beans. So, once I order 28 nitro cold brews from Starbucks and pay off the keg itself - this is how the figures look:
Cost/batch (48 oz) of pure N2 = $2.20 (the NitroPress carts are $44.03 after tax for 40)
Cost/batch (48 oz) of coffee beans = $3.09 (assuming $14/lb)
= $2.20 + $3.09 = $5.29 for 48 oz. = $1.32/12 oz (one equivalent to Starbucks grande)
The cost of $1.32/12 oz using this tap saves me $4.13 per drink had I gone to Starbucks instead.
In case you don't mind using N2O - the cost comes out to $0.97/12 oz which equates to $4.48 savings per drink compared to Starbucks.
I'd encourage you to try both N2O and N2 to see what better suits your desired organoleptic properties. Again, N2O works well when dairy/fat source is added but I personally do not like it when it is just black coffee. I'm lucky enough to have access to raw cream and drinking that infused with the nitro coffee is the closest I've been to Heaven.
Final notes: I'd encourage you to try some other recipe ideas such as matcha, golden milk, and Thai tea - they all have turned out very well. Additionally, this keg is extremely easy to set up - just remember that extra o-ring. Royal Brew has helpful set-up videos in case something isn't making sense.
UPDATE: I just received the nitrogen and immediately put 2 cartridges in. The taste is great and everything meets my expectations. I will say, it's not the exact same as you will get from a kegerator setup but it's very close at a great value. I would definitely recommend this to someone who wants a quick and east way to get some nitro brew.
Update #2: I was wrong. This is the second time I used it and the nitrogen fitting leaks like a sieve and will not hold. Thank go for Amazon replacement policy. Well see how the next one goes.
Update #3: the company contacted me immediately after I sent them an email about the failure. Their customer service is top notch. They offered to replace the valve and completely understood my issue. Amazon already sent me a whole new replacement kit but if that wasnt the case, I would feel confident this company would make it right. Other than this issue, this keg is still high quality.
These are the products i bought that helped me most...
I also use Starbucks Siren coarse coffee grounds which you can only buy directly at stores.
Don't give up and keep trying! You'll get the perfect nitro you're looking for! Good luck! :)
