I plan on pouring many beers today!!!!
Happy Birthday my friend!
My experience with draft systems is very limited, I had a converted fridge for a while that my buddies and I kept stocked with commercial beer but it was typically light stuff, Bud Light and Coors Light - don't beat me up too bad, this was before I knew what real beer was.
Anyway...I'm not familiar with Victory Hop Devil, is it considerably thinner than the Stout? The reason I ask is because I'd think that the lighter beer would be easily permeated by the CO2 in comparison to the Stout - maybe a second regulator for the VHD, backed off to 4psi or so, would do the trick.
