Default Building Keg System

I have recently purchased a chest freezer and love temperature controller, and now only have enough money for a single keg conversion kit. I planned on buying it from Keg Connection because they seem to be the absolute cheapest (true?). Here's my question. The kit I want comes with a dual gauge regulator that only one keg can be hooked up to. If I purchased this, would I be able to possibly expand my system at a later time. By this I mean, if I wanted to add another regulator and gauge, can I buy pieces that just screw on to my current rig, or do I have to buy a brand new regulator that has gas outputs.

***NOTE: I want to eventually have a keg of soda, so I would eventually need different PSI from the same CO2 tank.

THANKS!

You should be able to just add one of these regulators. It even says so on his description

This gives you everything you need to add a body to one of my existing regulators. Purchased a single origionally and wished you had a double body,

I have CocaCola on tap for swmbo at 12 psi. It's fine. Not super fizzy, but it's good.

Coke is way over carbed anyway! I can't even stand to drink it.

but to OP yes, just set the main reg to highest pressure you need, run a manifold and put a reg off each port for however many you need.

sorry for threadjacking and taking this a bit off topic, but....

What's your process for getting CocaCola on tap? I'm assuming that when you say CocaCola that you mean it's the commercial version and not a generic name for all soda/pop. Do you just buy Coke® syrup, pour it onto a corny, add water, force carbonate, and serve? Where do you buy Coke® syrup?

I've heard of people buying actual Coke product on ebay and stuff. However, if just mixing in the corny, I'd like to know the ratios because I would imagine a box of syrup makes a hell of a lot more than five gallons. Could be wrong though..
