Default 3 way CO2 Distributor

Could someone post a picture of their 3 or 4 way CO2 distributor set up? Does the distributor pictured below screw into the regulator? Or is there a line from the regulator to the brass barb of the distributor and then of course three lines off the distributor (right below red shut off valves) to the kegs? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hard to tell without being able to see the other end, but it looks lik it has a plug in it. You probably go from your reg to the barb.

Would it work to put a regulator before each of the valves? Then you could have 3 different pressures.

It would if you went tank (or main reg) -> mainfold -> 3 regs

I think David 42 did that, there was a thread on cheap secondary regs a few weeks ago...

EDIT: here it is: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=9650

With the manifold depicted, a line runs from the regulator to the brass fitting.

I have pictures in my gallery of the old 4-port manifold with one regulator and the new three regulator, 1-2-2 port setup.

You're right...there's only 6 pics. David's probably had a few too many and neglected to post the pics he is mentioning.

No, the search function is messed up. The pictures are in several catagories and the default search only looks in one of them. You can get to the other pictures, by going to the gallery and using the search function with david_42.



The main regulator and bottle are outside the kegger with mesh line feeding the secondary regulators and the soda bottle. Each secondary feeds a two-port manifold. The ale lines are in the picture as well, so it's a little cluttered.

I'm about due for a new kegger, this one is rusting out.
