Nitro hmph
The coffee brewed very well, the expectation that the nitro canister would be sufficient to keep the coffee pressurized for a week to 10days was not met. The pressure tank was exhausted in minutes. Attempts to get replacements proved futile. We built a new attachment and used compressed air to get the coffee out to make our guests experience the cold brew and the dispenser keg, but as a value for its cost, I'm not certain the whole kit is well planned out.

A rare miss for NB
I have tried this system with a cream ale and an IPA and I just cannot get the nitrogen incorporated with the beer. I am naturally carbonating and then trying to push with the nitrogen however it just doesn't get mixed in. I am still experimenting with different pressures but I don't hold out much hope. If you are interested in nitrogenating beer I recommend just going with beer gas (C02/N).

A good idea in theory- wail for version 2.0
A few weeks ago, after receiving the kit, I wrote how the quality appeared to a level of expectation and how if there were problems, that NB's awesome customer service would fix any I could possibly encounter, (they always have.) I had not set it up/used it at that time. Since then I brewed the coffee with no problem, it has the typical earthy, bean driven cold brew taste. The stout faucet (that I had tried to buy separate for months but that was not available outside of the kit) would leak at first but after taking it apart and finding a metal shaving in the threading, probably from its machine production, it worked fine. Since the cold brew was a flop, Ive moved the faucet to my keezer for my stouts. The keg is fine as well, I'll have other uses for it. The nitro regulator and the nitro canister are the problem. A great idea in theory, maybe if the kit came with 2 or 3 canisters it'd be cool, but as it is its a flop, (again, for the cold brew use- the reason people buy the kit, its a flop.) I read that one nitrogen canister would push at least one batch of coffee through the keg, I got 3 glasses. Id push it through with CO2 as I had before I bought this kit, but I learned that when the CO2 gets in the coffee solution, the caffeine (being alkaline) is neutralized by the acidic CO2, making your "jacked up" experience, just an experience of a strange tasting carbonated liquid. So, I basically spent $250 on a stout faucet because I didn't need any of the other equipment. So, 2 stars (2.5 isn't an option) for at least having quality equipment, but until NB has Jacked up nitro starter kit version 2.0 and they have identified a solution to the weak nitrogen infusion aspect, don't buy the kit and just get a toddy coffee basket and a nice burr grinder for the same price.

Don't do it!
My cold brew from a 1/2 gallon Mason jar out of the fridge is as good,or better. I drink it almost every day during the summer. I saw this when the kit was out of stock for some time back late in the summer and liked the idea. It seemed like a great deal with a $20 off coupon a couple weeks ago so I pulled the trigger. Nothing wrong with the components, in fact the kit really sold me on the big mouth fermenters. The small keg is solid quality too and I'll use it for portable beer. Hanging a stout faucet and heavy regulator directly off of plastic ball lock connectors may not be the best idea ever either... IMO, while it seems pretty good quality, the regulator is a waste unless it can be modded for a full size cylinder, at $20 a shot the N2 cartridges are completely unsustainable. Be aware too you'll need to purchase a coffee grinder while you're at it, the included coffee is whole bean. I'm not a fan of sickly sweet coffee, but since my results with this kit are so lackluster, I can only assume you have to add the included sugars to get the creamy results described in the ad. If that's the case I'm back to my Mason jars. The overall purchase gets 2 stars for the very good quality of the components included (that I'll use for other purposes), it would be about a zero strictly comparing my Jacked Up kit results to my $5 Mason jar DIY cold brew results without the kit.

Hi Tim

I'm sorry that the Jacked-up cold brew system has not provided you with a high-quality experience. In order to get the foam head

coffee must be prepared as prescribed. Please let us know if there is a way that we can improve your experience and remedy the situation.

I just bought one of these and the scary part is, I just began reading the reviews and noticed that there are poor star ratings and not much good to say about this equipment. Have you guys resolved the issues that those customers had brought up in their reviews? The cartridges running out way too soon, only serving 3 glasses, pressure leaking out of the tank, etc.? What are the return policy on these things?
C H on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We are flexible on returns and guarantee satisfaction. We guarantee to take returns within 30 days of unused merchandise, but will do our best to help every customer. The equipment is solid and with our advice and some patience learning the concepts and equipment, we are confident you will enjoy the products.
I have read that nitrogen does not infuse into liquid without a carb stone, if I wanted to "nitro" the coffee so I get the nice cascading pour with a creamy head how would I achieve this?
E G on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question. Nitrogen does not need to infuse with the beer to get the cascading effect. That is achieved by simply forcing the beer or coffee through a restrictor plate with many small holes inside the beer faucet. That causes the nitrogen to quickly be released from the liquid creating a cascading effect. A carb stone is only helpful if you want to infuse carbonation from c02 into the liquid.
How do you transfer coffee into this mini keg from a 5 gallon keg?
I T on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use a counter pressure method for transferring beer, but since the coffee is not carbonated I would just connect the two "out" sides of the kegs together and open the pressure relief valve until you want to stop.
Does it need to be constantly refrigerated?
T Y on Nov 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Tyler

For the contents to remain cold

it will need to be refrigerated

if you don't mind it room temp

it can stay out. That being said

you can leave it out when you're serving etc...
If I cold brew the coffee without the sugar or lactose, do I still start with warm water, add the grounds and then top off with cold water? Or do I use cold water for the entire brew?
M W on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There's no need to use warm water if not adding sugar. A cold steep is best!

Cheers

Is your equipment available in Europe ?
E C on Dec 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ennio

I'm sorry, but we don't have any retail locations in Europe and we are only able to ship to addresses in the United States.��There are a few forwarding companies out there though, that provide you with a U.S. address and we can ship to that. From there, they will be responsible for the package and any necessary documents required for shipping it to you. ��An online search should give you some options, if that is something you would like to pursue.

Cheers,

Charles
How much coffee do you use. I do not see an amount you should try or start with?
F U on Nov 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can start with 1 gallon cold-brew coffee made from 1lb of beans.
What are the dimensions of this unit. I cannot find this information anywhere. I am trying to gauge what mini fridge this might fit in. What is the tip to tip (nozzle to cylinder) and the footprint.
thanks
T D on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fully spread out it is 17" but can be reduced to about 11" by turning the regulator towards the keg. It is 17.25" tall.
Can any coffee be used with this system?
L E on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey April

Yes any coffee can be used in this system.
The town that I currently live in, nitro coffee is only available at one coffee shop. I would love to be able to make it at home but was wondering if the set up for this system is easy? What were the results?
L E on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey April

To brew cold brew nitro coffee

you will need the cold brew system. http://www.northernbrewer.com/jacked-up-nitro-complete-cold-brew-system It is relatively easy to use

and has great results. I hope this is of help!
It looks like I am losing pressure on my regulator but I can find any leaks and the nitrogen tank isn't draining. Why am I losing pressure?
C O on Nov 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The brass nut connecting the regulator to the disconnect may have been loosened when unscrewing your disconnect at some point. Please make sure that is tightly attached to the regulator.

The fact that you are not losing Nitrogen indicates it is more likely that the drop in pressure is due to your coffee absorbing nitrogen or your cold press being chilled. Over time both of these things will settle in and your system will reach equilibrium. After that happens your regulator readout should be constant.

If the issue still exists

we need to check for leaks. The best way to find a leak is spraying any connections or seals with soapy water.

Our customer service team is happy to help troubleshoot any other issues. You can find us on chat/email/phone 7 days a week.

Cheers! Todd J @ NorthernBrewer.com
What PSI would I use if I just wanted to push flat coffee out?
T D on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You won't need much pressure to get flat coffee from the keg. I would suggest starting low (around 5 PSI) and you can move it up until you are satisfied.

Cheers! Todd J
Why Nitrogen? Does it render higher quality than CO2?
J O on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's a lot different than co2. It makes a creamy texture and leaves a frothy head, sometimes referred to as a crema
Can I use regular gas cartridge from whip it style
$20 a bit height for onlyn1 charge
Todd K on Oct 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Those cartridges appear to be unthreaded

which will render them incompatible. Also

those are N2O

not N2. You will want to use Nitrogen gas

nit Nitrous Oxide.

Will this be back in stock soon?
N C on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We're expecting out next shipment of Cannonball Mini-Kegs to arrive later this week. If you add the product to your Brew List you'll receive a notification once it is back in stock.
When will these be in stock again?
D A on Sep 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The expected restock date is looking to be the 2nd of October.
What is the purpose of the lactose and sugar?
M A on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The lactose and sugar is added much like you would add sugar and creamer into your hot coffee. It is optional and if you prefer your coffee black you can skip adding those.
What are the instructions for the deluxe kit? Can they be reviewed prior to purchase?
C H on Sep 5, 2015

And the Cold Press portion here:

Approximately how long does one gas cartridge last?

Is the nitro cartridge the same as the "whip-its"?

If not, where can they be purchased?
T E on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cartridges will nitrogenate and serve one full keg. Or you can push flat coffee out of about 2 kegs if you do not nitrogenate. We will be selling the nitrogen cartridges needed for subsequent batches. #41762
Can this also be used to dispense nitro beers?
T E on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This will dispense nitro brews much the same as it would coffee. You would need to carbonate the beer first either with external CO2 or by adding sugar and letting the yeast carbonate the beer naturally. Then you would use the small nitro regulator to dispense the brew. Prost!
