Default question about regulators

i was just wanting to know what kind of PSI rating a regulator needs to be for home brew kegging. thinking like 1 or 2 kegs.

Any regulator with a range of adjustment of 5-40 psi is fine. The requirement doesn't change with the number of kegs, you just get a bigger manifold. I've got a 4-way and I'm seriously thinking of moving the CO2 outside the keggerator & adding another tap.
