So I currently have a 10# tank inside of my keezer hooked directly to a dual-body regulator, one of the bodies has red gas line that goes to a 3 way distributor and the other has line that goes to a corny (via swivel nut -> QD).
I want to move the tank and regulators outside of the keezer for various reasons but here are the two most important
#1 My keezer can hold 6 kegs with the tank in there but probably 7 without it.
#2 Any psi adjustments can be done without opening the lid (which involves removing all 12 glasses from the shelves, the drip tray and whatever else has been piled onto it)
So I had a few ideas on how to go about this. You can see my keezer here -
What I am sure of:
#A Looking at the keezer, put the tank in the back on the right (there is some space on the wheeled base between where the freezer ends and the base ends - about 5" and the tank is 7" diameter so I can easily extend it and secure it using a strap or wood of some kind)
#B Two regulator bodies, somehow mounted to right side of the coffin box, then run the two gas lines (run to the 3 way and the other to a keg as described above) into the back of the coffin box and down the same hole in the coffin that the beer lines already run down.
Known parts list:
10' of gas line ~ $5.90
8 17.0 Oetiker Clamps ~ $2.50
2 Swivel Nut, 1/4 FFL to 5/16 Barb @$2.95 ~ $6
I have a dual body primary regulator, something like this -
and a normal primary (dual gauge, not body) like this -
I figure I could either
#1 Run high pressure hose from the tank to current dual body primary mounted as described in #B
#2 Attach normal primary reg to tank, run (much cheaper) gas line to two secondary bodies (something like http://www.amazon.com/2-Way-Secondary-Air-Regulator-Polycarbonate/dp/B003UCEJEI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1355330977&sr=8-3&keywords=secondary+regulator+co2
but hopefully much cheaper) mounted as described in #B
Thoughts on either approach?
