The mini-regulator may be the coolest product in our catalog under 1 lb as voted upon by MoreBeer! Staffers. Why so cool? The mini-reg features total portability with all the features of a full size regulator.

The regulator has a range of .5-1.5 bars which equates to 7-21 p.s.i.. This means that unlike the cheaper 16g chargers that shoot in CO2 at an indescriminate amount, the mini-reg allows you precisely dial in pressure and keep it there. It utilizes disposable 74 gram CO2 cartridges, which is the largest size that can be shipped full. One 74 gram cartridge will dispense 1-2 5 gallon kegs. Comes with regulator, one gas in Pin Lock quick disconnect and the associated hardware. 74 gram CO2 cartridges, KEG962 are available separately.

Mini Regulator Uses

Portable Serving: As an on-the-go regulator.

Backup – I’m out of CO2 and I want to pour a beer! Use as a backup if your main CO2 tank runs 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.
