    I am building a 4 tap jockey box with a 7 plate chiller and was wondering about some of the
    same things as rtockst. I plan on doing 8' lengths from the keg to the cold plate an 1' from
    the cold plate ...

    After rounding errors and stuff I would suggest starting at about 22-24 psi for serving
    pressure. For catering weddings and other events and such we have a total of 15 jocky boxes
    (admittedly serving ...

    We have an annual block party where we regularly serve four beers, all running through a six
    circuit cold-plate (two are left empty). I'd guess there's about 6 to 8 ft' of beer line
    between the tavern...

    I'm working on getting a jockey box with a 6 pass cold plate built. I need to get it done asap,
    because I'm using it at a festival on May 5th. I want to serve 6 beers and I'm having trouble
    figuring o...

    +1I can't believe there isn't anything in there about changing the orifice. That makes sense
    though, instead of it just being an extra insert when there is already one in the pilot burner.
    The burner ...

    Why do you have 2 regulators? You're already below half a psi with the first regulator. The
    second regulator makes no sense. The first thing would be to remove the regulators and put the
    .5 psi in as ...

    I've been working this 1.5bbl system(pictures above), and I've finally got all the plumbing
    done, valves hooked up, and ready to go... or so I thought.It's a single tier, 3 burner system,
    with the HLT...

    pilot light flame wayy too hot.

  • Posted in thread: need help on burner plumbing!! on 04-04-2012 at 02:48 PM
    burners on!! You can see the valve controlled burners are incredibly weak. I don't know if it's
    the valves or a combo of the valves and the regulator I've got connected to the cylinder. The
    REALLY str...
