    Good to see the "newest products" section is a little bigger.

    Would be great if I could click on that heading and redirect me to a page with the last 100 products added or the products listed in the last 30 days.

    No worries about the first and for the second as a secondary regulator after the main regulator. But I guess the combination of the inline regulator, pressure gauge and Duo Tee would do!

    @KegLand-com-au can you please let me know how I would set this product https://www.kegland.com.au/in-line-regulator.html up in my kegerator? How can you tell how many bars of pressure you're setting on this fitting?

    I would like to be able to run different pressures to different kegs from the one cylinder so that beers with different carb lvels, like stouts, ales and saisons for example, can all be carbed to their correct levels. At the moment, I have to disconnect and individually set pressures on each keg, then leave pressure set to suit the keg with the lowest carb level, which is a PITA.

    Yep ABG that’s what I want too - I have tried double regulators, but they can be cumbersome! So I was hoping for a simple solution.
    Kee is aware my kegerator is fitted with two gas ball posts on the back (makes it easier to remove cylinder). Inside I have JG 3/8 non returns and a swivels. It would be nice to be able to run secondary regulators and set them at different pressures

    Not sure if this has been asked before, but is there any reason why ball-lock connectors do not come with integrated push in fittings rather than barb or MFL? I appreciate that you combine a Ball-lock with MFL connector with the push-in / MFL adaptors to achieve the same, but this just seems to introduce another point of potential leaks.

    Use a carbonation cap, a bit of beer line, and a push-in pressure gauge to make yourself a gadget that can display line pressure. Turn the regulator to its lowest pressure, attach the gadget to your gas disconnect, and turn up the pressure until you reach the desired level. Voila.

    Or, if you want a permanent display like a real regulator, add a tee fitting after the regulator and attach the pressure gauge there.

    Any answer to this @KegLand-com-au question?
    I emailed your website three days ago.
    Would like to get an answer so I can get an order in.

    I’m planning b) pressure gauge, Tee piece and inline regulator - similar setup to Blowtie except gauge after inline.

    The images on that page show a 16.26mm measurement for the threaded section
    A punch that small (that isn't for 1/2" holes) is a bit of a waste imho
    Drill a 5-8mm pilot hole, then step it up to 17mm with a decent step bit, using plenty of cutting fluid/lube (I use 50/50 coconut oil and baby oil), low drill speed and a bit of pressure behind the drill

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to set up my new keezer and I'm struggling to find the flow resistance of your evabarrier 5mm ID beer line?
    I've seen some beer line length calculators which require the resistance to determine length.
    Do you have that kind of information for us?

    Flow resistance is worked out by the id of the line. So when using the calculator just go by 5mm. This is where the 4mm id line is good for short runs as you don't need anywhere near as much line.

    If that's the case then you should avoid using that calculator. There are heaps of decent calcs online that only require temp, carb level desired, height of tap above keg, and line ID. If the calc is asking for line resistance, move on to the next calc!

    I have just received a couple.
    They look great but I can’t work out how to strip them for cleaning. Is there a trick to it?
    Of course a manual or exploded diagram would be great!

    Worked it out.
    Unscrew the mfl on the side the and the whole thing then screws apart.

    Hi enoch, how were you going to use these disconnects, connected straight to the tap with an mfl adapter or with a length of beer line?

    I'd like to know they work connected to a tap with an mfl adapter for my mini keg portable setup.

    The intertap fc doesn't work well when used like that so I am hoping that these disconnects will work better.

    Cheers

    Taming a frisky keg that the fc intertap (also a perlick fc) struggled with. It’s a fairly highly gassed hefe weizen. The champagne of beers for fizziness.
    It’s via a couple m of hose not direct to tap.
    Can’t see why it wouldn’t work as advertised although it doesn’t like too much weight on one side as it will leak a tiny bit. I am using nice new correctly sized post o rings so it I think it’s just something to watch.

    That’s a bit weird. I can’t see any options to change it. Is this better?

    Where can i safely drill through the back of a Series 4 kegerator? I'd like to run some extra water lines though the back of mine for a jacket cooled fermenter. I'm guessing near the existing gas line hole would probably be the safest bet?

    Also i'm thinking of adding some secondary regulators internally at some point and likewise would like to know where is and isn't safe to screw into on the sides/back.

    Afraid not. Don't know what you can see in the quote above, but all I get is the old red X meaning pic no worky.

    When I try to view the address https://aussiehomebrewer.com/media/10904/ (which is what your first linky takes me to), or when I manually open https://aussiehomebrewer.com/media/kegland-flow-control-disconnect.10904/full (the picture you tried the second time around) I get the following:
