More Info

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

  • Light and durable aluminum body is lighter than steel but remains Durable and long lasting. Aluminum is the industry standard for Co2 manifolds for their strength and resistance to corrosion. This manifold is ideal for homebrewers, bars, or anyone who is looking to easily split gas for beer or beverage dispensing and even for force carbonation.
  • Integrated high quality check valve outputs prevent liquid from flowing into the manifold and your regulator. Don’t worry about dirty lines or ruined regulators ever again! Every integrated check valve ensures that your beer stays on the right side of the line.
  • No leaks due to ample thread tape and vigorous water testing after assembly. All manifolds are internally cleaned before assembly for the purest air possible. Don’t settle for mass produced, low quality manifolds from overseas. The Weekend Brewer manifold is the highest quality manifold on the market due to rigorous testing and quality control.
  • Mounting holes allows for easy installation on walls or kegerators. Two screws or nails will easily secure your manifold to any surface for ease of use.
  • Made in the USA these manifolds are assembled by American workers in our fayetteville, AR facility.

 

 

CO2 manifolds allow you to feed multiple kegs off one co2 regulator.  Things to look for in a capable manifold are shut-off valves for each trunk and check valves.  Check valves makes sure flow goes the right directly.  This is important for CO2 manifolds because differences in pressure make it possible for liquid to back flow through gas lines.

I have two posts about this specific manifold.  A Hands on Review and a walk-through to convert it to DuoTight.

Build a DuoTight CO2 Gas Manifold! – for Kegland EVABarrier Tubing

Upgrade Your Kegerator – Control Pressure for Each Keg Separately – Ger a FREE Beerdana

Duotight Regulator with Gauge via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

This 8mm Duotight compatible regulator with 0-60 PSI gauge fits 8mm outer diameter tubing, and can handle pressures up to 150 PSI (if you buy an optional 150 PSI gauge). Suitable for gas or water, all components are food grade.

This is perfect for reducing the pressure of one gas line in a draft system – for example, with a single regulator and C02 bottle, you can set the pressure at the C02 bottle with the larger regulator (not included) and then put this regulator inline to reduce the pressure. Handy for when you want to carbonate one keg at 25 PSI and dispense another at 8 PSI.

Taprite Brand Dual Gauge CO2 Regulator – $59.99 + Free Shipping, Limited Availability

 Alternative Product PhotoAlternative Product Photo Taprite Dual Gauge CO2 Regulator

Taprite Dual Gauge CO2 Regulator.  Easy hand adjustable pressure (no tools needed), barb outlet with ball valve shut off.  Low pressure gauge reads 0 to 60 PSI.  An optional protective gauge cage is also available.

More about the T742HP

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

When it comes to CO2 regulators, we’ve tried them all. This quality unit by Taprite is our favorite on the market. It’s no wonder this regulator is trusted by so many breweries and beer bars—it represents the best quality at a great price. Available in a standard, single-body model, as well as a dual-body model which allows you to send different pressures to two separate kegs from the same CO2 tank!

The things you’ll love about this regulator are:

  • The large front knob makes pressure adjustment tool-free, easy & fast.
  • The built-in gasket where the regulator connects to the CO2 tank eliminates the constant replacement of fiber washers every time you change out your tank.
  • The barbed outlet features a one-way on/off valve which prevents backflow and protects the regulator’s internals.
  • The gauges are easy to read. The low pressure gauge reads from 0 to 60 psi. The optional available gauge cage is the best on the market.
  • This is the T742HP model, where the HP stands for high performance; it won’t freeze up when multiple taps are running at once.
  • Best of all is the consistent pressure regulation. With many regulators the pressure can ‘creep’ up over time. This unit holds the pressure rock steady. No drifting.

 

Although the product page doesn’t say it, as of this posting, Taprite’s about page says that.. “Taprite products are proudly made in the USA”.  Check site for current country of origin claims.

One of my favorite gadgets! Inline CO2 Regulator [control each keg separately] – $4.99 Closeout, New Version Announced

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.

Hands on Review: Kegland DuoTight Fittings & EVABarrier Tubing!

Kegland’s DuoTight Fittings are designed to work with EVABarrier Double Wall Tubing.  They offer quick, reliable connections, easy implementation, a variety of fitting options and feature amazing versatility.  They’re also, generally speaking, very well priced.  DuoTights are push to connect fittings and require no tubing clamps.

How to Use DuoTight Fittings – No Tools or Clamps Needed!

DuoTights feature a unique double EPDM O-ring design.  Coupling and uncoupling is quick and easy and requires no tools or clamps.

DuoTight Ball Lock QD on Left, Compatible EVABarrier Tubing on RightMaking a pressure capable connection is as easy as pushing the tubing all the way in the fitting and firmly pulling the tubing out.To disengage the connection press the collar toward the fitting body and pull on the tubing.  A couple tools are available to help with this process.  See below for photos and links.I have clips – John Guest Acetal Copolymer Tube Fitting, Locking Clip, 1/4″ Tube OD – that provide some additional security.  They slide into the collar and prevent the connection from disengaging.  These are not required for a solid connection and are not part of the official DuoTight lineup. 

Here’s another locking clip that I’ve confirmed is compatible with DuoTights – JIUWU 1/4 inch Locking Clips for RO Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Fittings – this photo shows these clips being used on several DuoTight Fittings

  • There are lots of similar clips out there – Search Amazon for “john guest locking clip 1/4” to see what other options may be available. 
  • Make sure to source a compatible size.  I’ve found that 1/4″ size clips work with my DuoTight Fittings but your experience may vary.

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.
