If you're doing a 3 tap kegerator setup can you run it off the same 5# tank?

For example, right now I've got two taps, w/ plans to add one, one 5# tank and a duel regulator. Could you basically just keep swapping out which keg is on the gas depending on what you are in the mood for?

My understanding, is yes.
but...you need to make sure you have the proper amount of pressure in the keg before you take it off the c02, so the beer wont go flat.i think if you do that you'll be ok ..

Couldn't you just buy a new manifold or gas splitter that would accomodate 3 on all the time?

I have a 3 tap setup on my kegerator and a 3 way gas manifold that runs off of my 5# tank.

I think I picked my splitter at Kegconnection - it works great. I close 2 valves when I am force carbing, drop the pressure to serving and can serve 3 beers at once with no issues.

I was looking at the one from morebeer.com Starts with 3, but can add on more as needed. Guess I only knew because i was looking into building a 3-tap kegerator. Good luck!
