Gas Quick Disconnects with Built in Shut Off Valves

Colder PLCD17004 Acetal Tube Fitting, Coupler, Shutoff, In-Line, 1/4" Flow Coupler x 1/4" Barb

PLCD17004 Coupler by Colder Products Company

1/4″ Flow Coupler x 1/4″ Barb.  Max Pressure 120 PSI.  Operating Temps -40 to 180 deg F.  NSF Rated.  Meets – FDA, USDA, NSF and ROHS specifications.

This has an integral inline shutoff valve.  That means when you disengage/de-couple this QD is stops the flow of gas.

I use similar QDs on the gas side of my system.  With those, I can swap out lines, remove lines from my kegerator and add on utility devices.  You could also use these to easy swap between ball and pin lock lines.

9/30/16 4 PM Central: The PLCD22004 has dropped to $7.  That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found. Shipping is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order.

There are also straight through versions of this coupler.  Those do not have the inline check valve and will release pressure when you disengage.  See: PLC17004 and PLC22004.  The inline QDs are also cross compatible with shutoff versions.

Growler Filling Tips and Tricks

Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers
