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.

Brewers Hardware Single Tier Stainless Steel Brew Stand – $950, Save $150 + Free Shipping

The Brew Stand - Single Tier Stainless Steel Brew Stand

The Brew Stand – Single Tier Stainless Steel Brew Stand via Brewers Hardware

More Info

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

The Brew Stand – Single Tier Stainless Steel Brew Stand.

“The Brew Stand” is a single tier brew stand designed for most 15-20 gallon kettles 16″ in diameter, including ‘Keggles’. Seven years in the making, our unique design maximizes airflow around the burners while minimizing heat wash up the fronts of the kettles, keeping the front of the system as cool as possible. The back of each burner bay is open to allow the exhaust gases to escape out the back. The burner mount heat shield is flush with the bottom of the deck, but open in the back, directing most of the heat rearward. The burner mount heat shields are the same ones we sell and designed to mount our BURN10 10″ banjo style burner or a Bayou BJ14.

Starting from the top, the deck of the stand is constructed of 2″ square 16 guage 304 stainless. The deck is supported by 2″ diameter .065″ wall round tubing legs to fully support kettles to 20 gallon. All of the lateral structural supports are 1.5″ .065 wall round tubing. The advantage of the round tubing is we can make most of the welds in our rotary welding lathe, providing a single continuous weld with only one start/stop; providing a single consistent and nearly invisible weld at those points. All of the material cuts are made on a high-end Doringer cold saw, allowing for nearly perfect weld-ready cuts free of discoloration and contamination of an abrasive cut-off saw. (Going off on a tangent: cold saws are really cool! If you’ve never seen one, they’re like a wood miter saw but only turn 54 RPM. The material is clamped in a vice while the 14″ fine-toothed blade is flooded with coolant while it cuts, essentially milling through the material without heating it.) After welding, all of the welds are cleaned and repassivated with an electro-chemical weld cleaner.

The Brew Stand includes the stand itself, burner mount/heat shields, 2 pump mounts (very cool, they clamp in place on the 1.5″ tubing, allowing you to adjust their position to align to your kettles.) and Total Locking casters that lock on both roll and rotation.

What you will need:
You will need a gas system and burners if you’re going gas. If you’re using banjo burners, you’ll need 1/2″ longer screws to mount them, there will be a 1/2″ gap between each lug and he burner mount/shied, this is normal. You’ll need 2 pumps since this is a single tier system and of course your kettles and plumbing.

Dimensions:
The Brew Stand is 54″ wide X 18″ deep and approximately 27″ tall. The height varies because the caster height varies between shipments we get.

The Top Draw Pick Up Tube From William’s Brewing… FREE! with qualifying order

The Top Draw Beer Pickup Tube from William’s Brewing!


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

Do you want to drink the clearest beer possible from your keg as quickly as possible? The Top Draw™ Beer Pick Up Tube fits any ball or pin lock keg, and replaces the rigid stainless dip tube with a stainless float pick up on a 22″ food grade silicone hose. This flexible hose holds a 1″ stainless beer pickup tube which is held 1″ below the surface of the beer by the float.  As the level of the beer in the keg drops, the pick up tube remains 1″ above the surface, always drawing the clearest beer all the way until empty.

Installs in a couple minutes – just unscrew the beer post on your ball lock keg, insert the provided short pick up tube, and attach the silicone tubing to the underside of the tube. Now dangle the hole assembly in the keg and you are done.  For shorter kegs, cut the silicone tube to length.

Includes 22″ of tubing, stainless float with attached pickup tube, and short replacement stainless beer dip tube with seating O ring.

Made from 304 stainless steel, and the silicone hose is made in Texas to our exacting USA food grade standards.


I’m a big proponent of the idea behind the Top Draw.  In fact, I’ve used a similar, but very difficult product to find, for years,  See: Cask Widge Floats for Fermenting and Serving Using Corny Kegs? – I’m super excited that William’s Brewing has introduced this product.  It’s a great idea and I’m glad it’s readily available to US homebrewers!!

In Stock!  Williams has struggled keeping this in stock since it was introduced.  As of this posting, it’s available again, but I have no idea how many they have or how long that will last.  Check out the product page for current availability.
