SIX way CO2 Manifold – $49.99 – compare at $69.99

Gas Manifold - 6 Way

Gas Manifold – 6 Way  About from Brewer Dude: “Manifolds allow you to have one CO2 tank with multiple lines. Each line can be turned off individually without affecting flow to other kegs. Each ball valve contains a check valve that ensures no beer or gas can flow between the two kegs. The barbs are all 5/16″, standard for gas line in the beer industry.”

This allows you to vend multiple kegs using the same co2 tank and regulator.  It features check valves so that your beer keeps flowing the right way.

I believe that this is the same manifold that MoreBeer offers.  As of this posting, that offering is selling for $69.99.  That’s a guess.  That’s a great system, check out my review

As of this posting, this is selling for $49.99.  That figures to just $8.33 per trunk.  My personal rule of thumb for calling one of these is anything less than $10 per trunk.  Check the product page for current price and availability.

15% Off Gas Distribution Parts at William’s Brewing! – manifolds, inline regulators & MORE

CO2 Manifolds from William’s Brewing.  Each of the runs has a ball valve with an integrated check valve.

Check Valves.  The check valve ensures that liquid doesn’t backflow from one line to another.  It’s not common for beer to backfeed up a line, but it is certainly possible.

Barb Fittings.  Each of the four runs and the inlet feature 1/4″ barb fittings.  Personally, I prefer barb fittings on CO2 lines as they don’t loosen over time.  Even a small leak could mean an emptied CO2 tank.

Aluminium Body.  This manifold features an aluminum body.  One end has a 1/4″ NPT to 1/4″ barb installed for hooking up to your regulator.  The opposite end has a 1/4″ NPT plug installed.  That plug can be removed and another brass valve or part can be installed…  Q87, D16, or D69.

As of this posting, William’s Brewing is marking down their entire gas distribution parts category by 15%. No coupon or promo code is required, sale price is reflected during check out.  Check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.

Hands on Review: William’s Brewing Inline CO2 Regulator [control each keg separately]

william's brewing inline regulator

This review is by Michael Gomez.  Michael is an advanced homebrewer with years of experience.  Michael typically brews no sparge all grain using his two vessel setup with the occasional BIAB all grain batch.


About this inline regulator

Inline Regulator via William’s Brewing.  About: “This in line regulator features 1/4″ hose barbs, and can be adjusted with a flat head screwdriver. It can reduce incoming pressure from 150 PSI to 1 PSI. It is very handy to use when you want to use a single output C02 regulator in a draft system, but supply different kegs with different dispensing pressures. 4.75″ long with included brass hose barbs installed.”

This is basically an inline secondary regulator.  You still need a primary regulator attached to your CO2 tank.  The idea is, you set the primary to the highest pressure you will use (without exceeding specifications of any component of your system) and then use these regulators inline (one per line) to fine tune pressure and carbonation [See: Balancing Your Draft System].  As an example, you could set your primary to 25 PSI for faster force carbonation and set each line to a different pressure based on desired carbonation level.


Setup and Hands on Review

After setting up my kegerator, I realized wanted more options when it came to co2 pressure. The cost of secondary co2 regulators, one for each keg, seemed quite expensive. I decided I would get a 3 valve manifold, I found one at a reasonable cost at William’s Brewing [Gas Distribution Parts at William’s Brewing]. I also found these in line regulators. I was already planning on adding some quick-connects to my setup for easy line swaps, and I added an in line pressure gauge.  I only needed one since I can easily add and and remove to check/adjust pressure.

the_adapter_co2_regulator_to_paintball_tank_adapter_close_up

As of this posting, this is marked down to just $5.99.  Price, shipping and availability can change quickly.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.
