Pre-Order Now: KOMOS Gas Manifolds – Easy Conversion to DuoTight

KOMOS® Aluminum Gas Manifold – 1/4 in. Flare via MoreBeer

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

Due to high demand, the 3 & 4 way manifold is currently out of stock. Be the first to receive your items by placing a pre-order today. We will automatically ship this item to you when we receive more inventory.

Gas manifolds are the best way to provide CO2 to multiple kegs inside your kegerator or keezer. The KOMOS manifold features 1/4″ flare gas inlet and check valves that provide much more flexibility compared to manifolds with barbed valves. Choose the type and size of draft tubing that you prefer. Use 1/4″ or 5/16″ gas line with the appropriate Flare Fitting Set (KEG607 or KEG640), or use EVABarrier—our draft line of choice—with the appropriately sized Duotight Fitting (DUO106 or DUO120).

You can also replace one or more of the check valves with a Ball Lock Post Bulkhead, which allows you to use a gas-in ball lock jumper line as a quick connect option.

Need something bigger than a 4-way manifold? No problem! With this 1/4″ Nipple, you can join multiple manifolds for as many outlets as you need.

Features:

  • 1/4″ Flare connections
  • 1/4″ BSP ball valves
  • Rated to 100 psi
  • Wall mount holes
  • Made from aluminum, brass, and stainless steel

Eva Dry E-500 Dehumidifier [Fix Kegerator Condensation] – $19.97 + free prime ship

New and Improved Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier

Like many homebrewers and craft beer lovers, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs. Eva Dry Kegerator Condensation The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry E-500.  The Eva-Dry E-500 contains desiccant beads  that absorb moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry E-500 is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  I also use on of these in my fermentation chamber.

Hands on Review: KOMOS Stainless Steel Kegerators! – Designed for Homebrewers + Limited Time $45 Off Coupon

keg king kegerator reviewKOMOS Kegerators, are designed for Homebrewers from the ground up.  They have loads of features including the ability to operate at either draft serving temperatures or fermentation temps.

A Note On Branding of This Kegerator

Since this review was published, this Kegerator has gone through at least three branding changes.  Initially it was the Keg King, then it became the “Kegerator with Stainless Steel Intertap Faucets” and then it became the Kegland Kegerator.  Now, it’s the KOMOS kegerator.

Differences Between the Reviewed Unit and the Current KOMOS Kegerator

Beyond, branding, the KOMOS Kegerator sports two notable upgrades.  First it uses EVABarrier double walled tubing.  Second… it’s equipped with DuoTight connections.  I’ve been very impressed with both of these, so these are nice improvements.  There may be some other small differences.

Lockdown Silica Gel with Rechargeable Beads [Kegerator Condensation]… $12.79

Lockdown Silica Gel with Rechargeable Beads, Compact Design and Various Sizes for Vault Humidity Control and Rust Prevention

Lockdown Silica Gel with Rechargeable Beads, Compact Design and Various Sizes for Vault Humidity Control and Rust Prevention

More Info

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

  • DIMENSIONS: 4.5 Diameter x 6.5 inches H
  • SPECS: 40G Pack – Small handgun vaults and gun cases, 450G Bag – up to 33 cubic feet, 750G Vented Can – up to 57 cubic feet
  • EASE OF USE: Crystals change color once fully saturated and can be easily recharged in oven
  • RELIABLE: Prevents condensation, mildew and rust by absorbing moisture from the air
  • CONVENIENT: Available in various shapes, sizes and mounting options to ensure your space is protected from unwanted humidity

 

This is similar in concept to the Eva Dry E-500 – Hands on Review.  It contains desiccant material that absorbs moisture (in places like your kegerator).  The desiccant beads change colors as this takes place to let you know when the unit needs to be recharged.  This one differs from most of the models that we’ve featured on Homebrew Finds because instead of plugging in to drive off accumulated moisture you heat the Lockdown in the oven to recharge.
