might be hard to do, but i have a giant 27 cubic foot keezer, so I might get colder/warmer spots in there....

eh, i'll just set em both at 2.1 vols.
This would be extremely difficult to control. You'd most likely be farther off than just setting both to 2.2Volumes.

Actually , you really only need 1 inline reg that you can get at Lowes or HD for the lower PSI keg.

In combination with his other. You can't get two pressures with 1 reg.

Put the Porter on the warmest part of the hump and the Christmas brew back in the coldest corner. Set the reg to achieve target carb in the Christmas brew (at whatever temp it's at). I always do this in my keezer...it's not a huge difference but at least it's a step in the right direction. Hopefully you have isolation valves so you can just shut off the gas to the Porter, then give it a little gas whenever it needs it and shut it off again. It's not perfect but I have 4 kegs on 1 reg (plus isolation valves) and I almost never want for another reg.

THe inline reg is seperate from his Main Reg (attached to co2 bottle). So yes , there are 2 regs. One attached to the co2 tank , then say he has his line split to feed 2 kegs, he could put an inline reg on one of the line to drop the pressure.

He sets main reg to say 14 psi, then the inline reg to 10psi. He is then feeding 2 kegs at 2 diff pressures.

Just found this after a lot of searching. I am going to get a full keg of some bmc for a party I'm going to have and would like to keep a corny of homebrew on at the same time. To serve them both at the same time could I just T my gas line or use a manifold or would I have to get a second regulator? How do you connect two regulators together? Where can I find an inline regulator like mentioned before?

Yup, you can just tee off.

Thanks! I wasn't sure if anyone saw I posted a thread asking the same question. A T would be so much cheaper and easy. but I was thinking about buying a cheap plastic manifold so I could close it when I'm not serving the sankey.
