For 5 gal I wouldn't go smaller than 3/8'' tubing. If your batch size is 3 gal or smaller you
could get away with 1/4''.And just so you know if you calculate the surface areas based on

About $31. A $14 kit vs. a $45 reg, no reason to spend the extra money if it can be fixed.

I can't find a rebuild kit for a Draught Tech regulator, does anyone know if a micromatic
rebuild kit will work for it? The outer housing of the base model looks very similar. It got

fashion and get...

Whenever I've done high gravity, I always add more yeast at bottling. I sanitize a SST turkey
baster and put a little reconstituted dry yeast in each bottle. That way I know the yeast wont
