Hands On: Leland Mini CO2 (and Nitrogen) Regulator

Leland Mini CO2 Regulator Review

Leland’s Mini CO2 Regulator uses 74 gram CO2 cartridges.  These cartridges are about 4.6 times larger than cartridges that are typically used in handheld injectors.  The regulator is available in both Ball Lock and Pin Lock Flavors.  Additionally Nitrogen Cartridges are an available option.

When installed, this sticks out approximately 4″.

This model differs from other portable handheld CO2 injectors in a couple key ways.  First, it has a gauge and you can set the pressure.  Your beer stays at the intended pressure automatically.  If you’ve used a handheld injector for any length of time, you’ll know what an advantage having a true regulator is.  Second, it takes relatively large 74g CO2 cartridges.  These cartridges give you the capacity to dispense up to four full 5 gallon kegs.  The 74g cartridges are the equivalent of 4.625 16g cartridges.  That’s convenient.
Some applications for this regulator…

Small Space Regulator
If you’re in a small space situation, this would make a good everyday regulator.  The regulator itself takes up very little room and there is no bulky CO2 tank.  If you’re in an apartment or other small space, this gets you serving draft beer without using a lot of room.

Portable Serving
This makes for a great on-the-go regulator.

Nitrogen Serving
Want to serve the occasional beer on Nitrogen but don’t want to buy an additional regulator and tank?  More Beer offers Nitrogen Cartridges for this regulator.

Backup – I’m out of CO2 and I want to pour a beer!
I’ve used this as a backup when my main CO2 tank has run out.  Swap out the CO2 line for this regulator and you’ve got a temporary solution to keep you up and going until you can get more CO2.

Serve Beers at Alternate Carbonation Levels
This regulator goes up to 30 PSI.  That’s plenty to serve high carbonation beers like Hefeweizens and Belgians.  If you don’t have a dual or triple pressure setup, you could use this regulator to serve beers at higher pressures.  I would not suggest force carbonation with this unit.  The 74g cartridges would be pricey. You could carbonate using your existing regulator or just as easily naturally carbonate with priming sugar.  After the beer is completely carbonated, use this to serve at the higher pressure.

Saving Partial Cartridges
This particular unit comes with a gas ball lock disconnect and a 74g CO2 Cartridge.  A good thing about this setup is… you don’t have to discard partial cartridges.  If you decide to serve a 3 gallon keg for a get together, or use this to serve beer from your kegerator in a crunch, you’re able to save the rest of that cartridge for a future use.

The Leland Mini Regulator is well built and has worked great for me since Spring of 2012.  It’s small and has a number of handy applications.

This marks the first time I’ve seen this CO2 Manifold marked down as MoreBeer!’s Deal of the Day.  It’s marked down a whopping $10 to $28.99.  I consider it a Top Find at it’s regular price considering you can always expand it.

Each connection has a check valve and a shut off valve.  For gas, I prefer barbs over flare connections.  This has 5/16″ barbs but you can also use 1/4″ ID tubing.

More about MoreBeer‘s Expandable CO2 Manifold System…

There aren’t a lot of things in homebrewing that grow with you.  For example, when you get ready to go from concentrated boils to full extract boils, you cannot buy an add on for your 4 gallon kettle . :)

There are some exceptions.

One such exception is MoreBeer’s CO2 Manifold System.

A manifold allows you to easily split up gas so that you can hook up multiple kegs to your kegerator.  Manifolds typically contain check valves to stop beer from flowing back up into the gas system.  They will also have an on/off valve so that you can turn one segment of the system off.

More Beer’s system is unique because you can always add on to it!  Buy a 2, 3, 4 or 6 way manifold now and you can add on when you’re ready.

3 Way CO2 Manifold – $27.49

  843673 - 3-way Gas Distributor

3 Way CO2 Manifold with 3/8″ ID Barbs for $27.49 via RiteBrewCompare Here.  The description says it fits 5/16″ ID line.  5/16 is just a bit bigger than 3/8.   I’m guessing 1/4″ ID, just a bit smaller than 3/8, will also work.  I personally prefer barbs on the CO2 side.  MFL is dandy for the liquid side.  My thinking is… I can see a liquid leak.  I cannot see a gas leak.  MFL connections could loosen, where that isn’t really the case with barb fittings.
