valve actuator recommend
Hi guys!

I see that many of you have experience using electronic valve actuators in your brewing setups. I'm actually looking for a way to electronically control the pour of beer from my kegs. The actuators I have read about on here are large and take 5-10 seconds to turn on and off. I don't think they will function well for dispensing pressurized beer form a keg. Can anyone recommend a component that functions a bit faster, and is perhaps designed for a smaller flow of liquid? Any ideas or advice on how to do this would be much appreciated!

Thanks fellow brewers!

You're probably looking for a solenoid valve.

Here you go!

This is a good place to get your solenoids. Fast shipping, very good prices and the valves work great.

Hope this helps.

Cheers! :tank:
