Kegerator Tubing – Barbed vs Flare Fittings – what should you use?

Pictured: Four way CO2 Manifold via William’s Brewing

I think that the general consensus among homebrewers and home kegerator builders is that… MFL/Flare/Swivel connections are superior to barbed connections.  That’s just my read on the situation, no scientific basis for that statement.  After all, MFL swivel thingies look cool, they’re easy to attach and you can take tubing on and off easily and.  The total solution, including swivels also generally costs more… more expensive = more better… right?

My take on the matter…

For gas lines: Personally, I prefer barb fittings on CO2 lines as they don’t loosen over time.  Use a quality clamp and you have a solid connection that should not loosen or leak over time.  Moving kegs and lines around could conceivably loosen MFL connections and a CO2 leak is invisible.  Even a small, slow leak could equal an emptied CO2 tank.

For liquid lines: A liquid leak is a lot more obvious.  A little dripping from a liquid MFL line would tell you that the line has loosened.  I generally use flare swivels on liquid lines.  I do still use barbs on tail pieces because that’s kind of a tight spot on my kegerator that makes it difficult to turn a wrench.

Of course you can use whatever you want.  If you use MFL, I suggest periodically tightening swivels to make sure you always have a good, solid connection.

Hilitchi 70pcs Stainless Steel Single Ear Hose Clamps Kit

Hilitchi 70pcs Stainless Steel Single Ear Hose Clamps Kit


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

  • High-quality 304 stainless steel, corrosion-resistant
  • Smooth inner circumference for 360 degree uniform seal
  • Package quantity: 70pcs (each 10pcs), Organized within a convenient plastic storage case
  • Scope of 1/4” ~ 13/16” or 7mm-21mm
  • Please note – the size of the clamp denotes the inner dimension (id) of the clamp

I use stainless steel Oetiker Stepless clamps for most gas and beer applications.  I like the fact that they are… stainless steel, stepless (keep reading) and the fact that they stay tight (keep reading).  These clamps are designed so that there are no steps (gaps) on the inside.  That reduces the possibility that tubing will be torn or damaged.  These are single use clamps.  The upside of that is… Oetiker Stepless clamps will not loosen over time.  When they’re tight, they’re tight.  I really like that for kegerator applications because… A: I don’t like to empty CO2 tanks for no good reason and B: I don’t like standing beer in my kegerator.
