Default KEg inserts for no foam....help with thread

A while ago someone found some inserts from Mcmaster Carr that they inserted into the dispensing tube of their kegs, that eliminated the need for such long beer lines with great success.....I looked for the thread but no luck.

Does anyone have an idea who posted or what the items were called?

Thanks
Joe

I've used anywhere between 1 and 3. I think your best bet is to buy 3 or 4 per keg that you have.

So how do these effect the flow and the flow rate? do you need to increase CO2 pressure when these are used?

It allows you to set your kegs right to their serving pressure. I serve at 12-14psi at 35-38 degrees with 10 feet of (I think) 3/16" line.

3 of them will really slow down the flow rate. Now that I'm in a keezer with a temperature that is more accurate than the (now dead) beer fridge I was using, I may not need that many. I'm still experimenting. I used 1x4 for my collar, so I don't have that much dead space, but I feel like I need to insulate the top half of my keezer better. This matters for how well the shanks stay cold and how much foam comes out as well.
