different pressures

The ins and outs of putting your beer into kegs.

different pressures

Postby Shanus » Saturday Dec 08, 2012 8:09 am

i have 4 keg system with only one regulator

im just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how i could maybe split my gas line in my fridge and then change the pressure going to each keg i would like to be able to be carbing a keg while having other kegs at pouring pressure and i like different pouring pressures depending on if its my beer cider or ginger beer

would be great if you can get like small inline regulators

and where is the best place to buy one way valves and shut off taps

I don't keg, but it does look like there is a solution to your problem.

That's what regulators do. Take a supply pressure and control it. Think dimmer switch... But you can't make one light bright, two lights medium, and one light dim with just one dimmer switch. In short, each pressure requires its own regulator.

I bought a tesuco dual pressure reg so I can do what you want. It's a great reg. Unfortunately you don't have many other options as far as I can tell. Worst case scenario for me is I disconnect one keg while I force carb another for example.. Although I drink too much so that doesn't happen very often :twisted:

I use to carb one keg much higher and then disconnect it. Pour using the extra pressure and then top up the pressure at the end of the session. Worked ok, a bit of faffing about.

Now have multiple regs, manifolds so easy to run different pressures. Soda water and sparkling mineral water at 150 kPa now permanently on tap, ales at 50 kPa.

Splitting a gas line won't change pressure. You need 1 reg per pressure you want to run at.
