Since no body who knows anything about kegging has bothered to put information about kegging on the wiki:

How about this one:

What different types of places can you get a co2 tank refilled at? Any big chains that do it?

Ok, I'm jumping on the keg wagon. two questions:

1: Can I bottle from the keg? The kegerator is great for the house but, half the fun of brewing is giving out your beer to friends!

2: I thought that one of the main reasons for kegging was the fact that you didn't have to wait for carbonation to occur. However, I have read that you still put a little priming sugar into your kegs at the fill. Why do you do this if you are forcing CO2 into your beer?

first, i would recommend some search terms for you:

beer gun, beergun, CPBF, counter pressure bottle filler, force carbonation

with that said, there are many ways to bottle your brew from kegs. most expensive would be a CPBF, cheapest would be put a piece of tubing on your faucet or picnic faucet, and pour directly into a bottle then cap.

you can either prime a keg with sugar like you would with bottles, or you can force carbonate. i prefer to force carbonate as i am lazy and impatient. some like to conserve co2. i have 6 co2 tanks, one of which is a 50# tank, so i don't really worry about conserving co2, and it is really cheap.

About splitting the gas line:

I want to convert my commercial single-tap keggerator into a double-tap rig for my homebrew. What are the thoughts out there regarding a 2-way "T"-type line splitter vs. a 2-way manifold?

I clean my kegs when I run out of beer, tear it completely down and clean with soap. Ready to use keg again, tear it down again, wash with boiling water, then sanitize.

The biggest difference between a Tee and a manifold is the fact that you can turn off the gas to individual kegs (highly recommended). It is also easier with manifolds to add inline check valves which prevent beer from back flowing into your regulator (rare but it happens).


Something like above right are easily expandable as well for when you want to expand your daft system.

Overall manifolds will cost quite a bit more but they generally make up for the difference in their usefulness.
