Inline CO2 Regulator [control each keg separately] – on sale for $4.99 + free opener offer

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.

Homebrew CO2 Tank Tips – New or Used & Tank Size

1737Pictured: 20 lb CO2 Tank from MoreBeer

Part of Our Homebrew Tips and Tricks Series.  Check out the complete list – Homebrewing Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts!

New or Used?  Do you have a local spot to get your CO2 tank refilled or does your local provider swap empty tanks for full?  If you have a vendor that refills tanks, that’s likely your best bet.  In that case new or used tanks can make sense.  If your vendor swaps out tanks, I recommend considering a good used CO2 tank.  Don’t buy a new CO2 tank unless you’re certain that you have a good local source that will refill tanks.  It doesn’t make any sense to buy a shiny new tank and then swap it out for a used tank right away.

Get a big CO2 tank.  At my supplier, it costs around $20 to swap out an empty 5 lb tank.  It costs around $25 to swap out an empty 20 lb tank.  It’s more than 3 times the cost to refill the smaller tank!  With the example prices, 20 lbs of CO2 would cost $80 with a 5 lb tank vs $25 for a 20 lb tank.  That’s a $55 savings.  I recommend getting as large of a CO2 tank as you can for your space.  This will pay for itself in both in time and money.

Get a Bigger Tank, Save Money on CO2 – Brand New 20 lb CO2 Tank – on sale for $119.99

CO2 Tank - 20 lb Aluminum D1058

CO2 Tank – 20 lb Aluminum via MoreBeer


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

This brand new, 20 lb aluminum CO2 tank ships free in the 48 contigous states, and because it is made of aluminum rather than steel you can feel confident that it will never rust. It’s called a 20 lb tank because it holds 20 lb of compressed (liquified) CO2.

All new CO2 tanks are shipped empty and will require either filling or exchanging for a full tank. Most local homebrew shops will stock gas to exchange, and many local welding supply companies can fill tanks on site.

CO2 tanks should always be stored in an upright position.

Dimensions: 27.25″ Tall x 8″ wide.


  • Save Money on CO2:  At my supplier, it’s about $5 more to refill a 20 lb tank vs a 5 lb tank.  That’s 4 times the CO2 for $5 more.  Beyond that, this means a lot of time savings.  Less lugging your tank around.  With these savings a tank upgrade will pay for itself.  Your costs will vary.  See our Tips Page for more tips and tricks
  • This is on sale for $119.99.  That’s a $20 savings
  • Get Free Shipping: Shipping is free with a qualifying $59 order to many US addresses.

Hands On Review: Weekend Brewer CO2 Manifold

Why a Manifold?

CO2/Gas Distribution Manfiolds allow you to easily split CO2 lines so that you can use a single tank and regulator for multiple kegs.

What to Look for in a manifold

Some features to look for when shopping for a manifold are individual trunk control, integrated check valves, the right connection type, good build quality and… no leaks!

  • Individual control is really straight forward… a ball valve for each trunk.
  • As far as check valves, those are designed to prevent backflow between lines.  Although these are gas lines we’re talking bout, differences in pressure can cause back-feeding beer to flow into gas lines.  Check valves help to prevent that.
  • Look for a compatible connection type – MFL/Flare or the right size barb fitting.
  • Good general build and material quality
  • And… This may sound obvious, but…. look for something that does not leak.  Leaky manifolds result empty CO2 tanks and those are no fun.

Hands on Review The Weekend Brewer 4-way MFL CO2 Distributor Manifold

This particular model features four trunks with 1/4″ MFL Fittings along with a 1/4″ MFL inputClose up of the ball valve.  These feature inline check valves to help prevent back flow.  I chose 1/4″ MFL but the weekend brewer has lots of options available, including a build your own option, linked below.A look at the gas inlet.  MFL “in” connections like this seem to be more difficult to come by.  A barbed inlet seems to be more common.
