MFL vs Barbed for Gas Lines?  Personally, I prefer barbed connections for gas lines.  To me, it’s more likely that an MFL connection could work it’s way loose enough to be the source of an invisible CO2 gas leak.  Even a small leak can = an empty tank.  I think it’s less likely that tubing secured to a barb with a properly fitting worm clamp or oetiker clamp.  Also: Oetiker Stepless Clamps for Kegerator Gas and Beer Lines

1/4″ Cole Palmer Luer Lock Disconnects + Making a CO2 Utility Line

Cole-Parmer AO-45502-20 Female luer x 1/4" hose barb adapter, Nylon, 25/pk

Luer Locks disconnects are generally used in medical and industrial applications.  Compatible male and female Luer Locks twist together to make a airtight, pressure capable connection.

I use Luer Lock style connectors for a CO2 utility line for my draft system.  That allows me to quickly and easily switch between a number of CO2 utility attachments that I don’t use on a day to day basis.  The reason I chose Luer Locks is that they are generally inexpensive.  You could also use these as a primary disconnect for your CO2 system.

These Luer Locks are made by Cole Parmer.  They feature 1/4″ barbs to connect to compatible tubing.  I asked the manufacturer for the PSI rating of these disconnects.  I was told… “Thank you for your email. the fittings AO-45502-20 and AO-45505-19 are male and female fittings and compatible. The Psi rating for these fittings together is 100PSI”.

Make sure the components you use are compatible and rated for your intended application.  Contact manufacturer with questions about suitability or a specific application.  Always read and follow manufacturer directions.

Save on Kent System Soda Bottle Carb Caps and QDs

Kent Fittings - Shut-Off QD Set (1/4 in. Barb & Soda Bottle Cap) H482

Kent Soda Bottle Caps and QDs via MoreBeer


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Use this quick disconnect set to seal a soda bottle under CO2 pressure. An ideal way to bring homebrew to a party without all the accessories.

  • A single-handed connection and disconnection
  • Strong plastic that can handle 250 degrees, very durable, and is medical-grade compliant and made from FDA approved material
  • Easy installation into your home brewery
  • KENT Systems quarter turn design functions safely

TIP N’ TRICK: Add a CO2 tee inline with your current CO2 setup and install the H481 Kent Shut-Off Female QD w/ 1/4 in Barb included. This way you always have access to CO2 accessible to put your beer under pressure before leaving for the party.


Uses:

  • PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.
  • Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.

The Kent System Is Unique!

This system is unique for a couple reason.  First it’s comprised of two components (most caps are a single piece).  One piece threads onto the bottle, the other is a QD that has a barb and connects to your CO2 system.  Because of this two piece design you can use one QD with loads of caps, reducing costs vs traditional one piece designs.

A second thing that sets this system apart is… it’s the only solution I’m aware of that works with pin lock QDs, or better stated without the need for ball lock QDs.  Since this is barbed in can hook to any compatible CO2 line no matter if you use ball lock or pin lock QDs.

As of this posting, MoreBeer has the Cap and QD set for $9.99, while extra caps are $4.99. Shipping is free with a qualifying $59 order to many US addresses. Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

Inline CO2 Regulator [control each keg separately] – $7.99 via William’s Brewing + Hands on Review & Hacks

william's brewing inline regulatorInline 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.”  The product page has a video with more info.

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.

Review and Hacks… ReviewDial in w/SpundingUse for portable serving!
