Kegland DuoTight Inline Secondary with Gauge! [control each keg separately] is in Stock + 12% Off ENDS Today

Duotight Regulator with Gauge

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.

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap for PET Bottles – works on gas AND liquid posts – now $10.38 + free prime ship + Hands on Review

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap Counter Pressure Bottle Filling With 5/16" Barb,CO2 Coupling To Carbonate Soda Beer Fruit Juice Water

Stainless steel ball lock carbonation cap with barb.  Includes replacement o-ring.

More Info

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

  • 304 stainless steel will last a lifetime
  • Carbonate,cleaning your beer lines
  • Use it to counter pressure bottle fill PET bottles
  • Easy to install and use,with extra 5 piece of o-ring for replacement
  • Weight:3.5-3.6oz,stainless steel material 100/100,We are committed to offer you high quality product as well as superior service! Please feel free to tell us if any problems, we would try our best to satisfy you. Lifetime technical support.

“The post on this unique carbonation cap has been machined ,so it fit BOTH the liquid and gas ball lock disconnects.”

 

Applications:

  • PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.
  • Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.
  • Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed two draft line cleaning projects using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

One of the questions that arises on these type of carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check the product description for current specs.

Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.

Using a Keg as a CO2 Source for Portable Serving! – DuoTight Regulator w/Gauge Available Again!

This technique uses an economical inline secondary regulator to utilize a spare keg as a CO2 source to serve a keg.  I’m not suggesting this setup as a replacement for your kegerator CO2 tank.  You still need a standard CO2 tank.  What this setup could be very useful for is as a replacement for those expensive little regulators or injectors and expensive (considering how much CO2 you get) little CO2 cartridges.  One inexpensive purchase allows you to pressurize and serve your keg on the go for little to… nothing.  Keep reading.


Updated v2 Inline Secondary!

An updated version of this great gadget is now available.  It’s DuoTight equipped and… has an integrated CO2 gauge.

Although this post features v1, the same concepts apply to a v2 setup with the added benefit of an integrated gauge.  Since v2 is DuoTight compatible, there would be some plumbing differences.

Something like…

The Magic Piece of Equipment

Cheap Inline Regulator – via William’s Brewing | via MoreBeer | via Amazon

These inline secondary regulators have been on the scene for a little while now.  At the price I’ve seen them at, sub $10, they are a bargain.  They also add a lot of flexibility to your draft setup, allowing you to easily and cheaply serve using multiple pressures and carbonation levels.

Note that these are inline secondary regulators.  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.
