CO2 Regulator – $34.99

Thanks to tipster Richard for this tip!


EDIT: Based on a comment to this thread, I’m not sure this is going to work well for homebrewing.  There is an issue with the gauges.  One gauge reads 0 to 4,000 PSI.  The other is actually a flow meter not a pressure gauge.  I think it will work, but it’s going to be a pain.  You should consider a different option.


Consider this alternative.

Harbor Freght Dual Gauge CO2 regulator with adjustment knob.  The manual says that the barb on this is 1/4″.
 
If you’re looking for a deal on a CO2 regulator, it’s going to be hard to beat this price.

    I got one and next time I go to get my CO2 tank filled, I’m going to ask them to check it out for me. Some forums I’ve looked say that the inner ring on the low gauge would be comparable to PSI based on tests they’ve done. If I confirm, then I’ll post the info there too. Otherwise, replace the lower gauge with one that reads PSI. I hear they run about $12 and if you get a harbor freight coupon, you can get this regulator at enough of a discount to almost pay for the new gauge.

    Brian… I don’t think that is a problem as that gauge is for the high pressure side and doesn’t really matter. But… When I looked at it because of your comment I realized that what appears to be the low pressure gauge is not a low pressure gauge at all, but a flow meter. It shows the rate that CO2 is flowing instead of the pressure. I think that is an issue. Thanks for your comment, I’m going to update this post.

    I’m no expert, but it looks like the guage goes from 0-4000 psi. Versus one from midwest that goes from 0-60 psi. It could be pretty hard to get your system as 10 psi on a 4000 range. Not trying to say it’s not a good deal, just want to make sure people are aware before they buy.
