Wow, I thought this was HUKD? The beer sub machine is the antithesis of good value beer drinking...

Anyone used one of these before?

Not yet but I've heard good things from previous deals.
To me it would be nothing more than a gimmick. Holds less than 4 pints, it would need to hold at least 10 for it to be worth the hassle.

That's true which put me off for a while but can't argue at that price.

Yes! It is very nice machine. It cools your beer down to 2 degrees and there is a lot of variety of beers available + limited edition and seasonal beers. Definitly worth it!

Just ordered mine with a Morretti sub as well.

You can store the beer In the fridge and load onto the machine when needed.

Looks like it takes rather long to get to the right temperature though:
Once in THE SUB, cooling down a TORP takes 10 to 16 hours (depending on starting temperature of the TORP). When your beer is chilled to the right temperature, the light on the front of THE SUB will turn green. 

To speed up the process, set your fridge at the lowest temperature and store the TORP on the lowest shelf (this is the coldest area) for 6 to 10 hours, or until the cold indicator on the TORP turns dark blue.

So are these like a beer equivalent of a Tassimo?

This is indeed a very good point. Pre-chilling the torps (beer) is a needed. A typical fridge cools the beer down to 5-7 degrees which is good enough to use it directly in the Sub. The Sub will cool it even further down to 2 degrees.

I personal usage tip i can give is to put the torp for 1 hour in the freezer. Dont forget to take it out :-) the torp is directly ready for usage!

Yeah, kind of.
If you cool from room temperature it'll take up to 6 hours realistically to cool down to the 2 degrees. Just keep them in the fridge and it doesn't take that long.

They've been around a while but I didn't fancy paying the £165 when they first come out.
I’ve really struggled with mine, every time I use it I get half a pint of beer and half a pint of froth !
Stick your glass in the fridge beforehand and there shouldn't b as much froth.
Wow, I thought this was HUKD? The beer sub machine is the antithesis of good value beer drinking...
@gepw same as me mate. Sometimes it does settle and come out properly but deffo for the first few goes its very frothy. Desperados pulls well though! I think that's because it's not as gassy as say Heineken.

Various bundle deals on tops but start at £7 each. That's about £1.75 a pint. Sounds reasonable for premium beer to me. Get a bundle and works out cheaper.
V Tempted!! 12% TCB / 10% Quidcoas well
£100 for what 4 pints and a small fridge?
My fridge cools to 3c anyway, seems pricey to me
Landfill sites are full of useless gadgets like this, £100 for a two litre fridge, I can't see the bargain here.
Do you get a Heineken torpedo with it
Original Poster
I don't think so but I've just been looking into the Top Cash Back that got added and you get 12% off the torps as well.
The 14 torps + glasses = 1.93 per pint
Am I missing the "Deal" or is it just because it's discounted from a ridiculous RRP

So the Sub and what appears to be 1 torp (3.5 pints) £99.99 - £28.56 per pint

Theres also: uk.the-sub.com/tas…tml
For 139.99 (14 pints) - 9.99 a pint

Whilst theres some interesting beers in the torp range the interesting ones are £8-9 per torp being ~£2.57 a pint
Sorry but buying the more interesting bottled ones, the offers from most supermarkets can keep up with this pricing.

I'm with the comments above, a kitchen gadget that'll be used initially only for it to be left unused.

Beat me to it.

Your better off getting a mini fridge and buying cans and/or bottles.
I would rather buy cans of beer and leave them in the fridge....

Hi
Do you thinks it's even worth the money ?
So... This is a thing to cool down your beers, right? That you can help along by putting in the FRIDGE to cool down?

What am I missing, here?
Thanks OP But a lot of faffing about with one of these or a can from the coldest part of fridge and save £££££
This is well worth the money in my opinion, and as usual the financial nit picking comes from people who don't even own the device, as is usual on here.

Stick a few Torps in the fridge and load whenever you fancy a beer. Simple.

Once you've purchased the machine it's great value for money.

The fact the Torps hold just under 4 pints is a good thing in my opinion, as I wouldn't sink 10 pints in the house, i'd have a few at the weekend watching the footy or a movie, and I don't want to leave it on constantly.

For full disclaimer, I paid £69 for the Red Sub, a full £100 lower than this one at the time, and it looks amazing in my kitchen, and provides a talking point whenever people are round.

Loads of selection on the site, ever expanding selection and decent deals on bulk orders.

Give it a bash if you fancy it folks.
Did someone call this premium beer? Lol
I am still tempted to get one and put in the living room, then again I could just put a small fridge in the living room and fill with beer hmmmm

It's so simple to use to be honest, not really a big task at all. No faffing required.

It's not designed to cool your beers down, it gives you the facility to have a freshly poured beer at home and keep it cool, at a decent price IF you use it every now and again.

I've really enjoyed mine to be honest mate, I paid less than this but was prepared to buy at full price and got lucky at National Beer Week promotions a little while back.

In order for your comparison to work, you'd have to include the cost of your own fridge too wouldn't you?
I like mine but I wish I'd bought a more generic machine like this...

saveur-biere.com/fr/…tml

The sub is good at what it does but the 4 pint limit and the volume of beer I drink feels like faffing about.

I tried refilling a sub, it didn't work well, not unless flat lager is your thing.

what are the bulk deals? I cant see them on the site.

They seem to change all the time, but i'm sure my last one was 6 Heineken, 2 Sol and 2 Amstel Radler (my holiday lager!) for £50 odds, which worked out alright, plus as it was just over £50 it was delivered for free.

how often do they do deals, is it a case as there's always something on offer? I'm on the fence about buying one, don't want to invest and then I'm paying full price from now onwards.
I thought this was dispenser and pints for £99 which i was on the fence about @ £194 Kegator is more interesting in this case.

Not really as the fridge is used for more than just cooling beer and isn't bought specifically for this purpose.
