Default Trunk line or individual?

I need to get the beer from my kegs to the taps in my six tapper kegerator . I Origionally though of doing air cooling. But after some though i think we are going to do water cooling instead. . question being is there any way to beat Micromatics trunk line for this sort of application?

Make it your self,

all you will need is a small pump, 1/2" DOT air line the plastic stuff (found at NAPA) and a length of foam pipe insulation (found at lowes or home depot).

Honestly I think you could get almost everything at the hardware stores, I would use the 1/2" irrigation line.

Oh you will also want to get a roll of duct tape to seal off the insulation, I know that the tape comes in several different colors.





These are just random DIY thoughts

The taps are going to be directly above the kegerator? If so, you don't need anything but a fan to blow the air up in one tower and out the other. I wouldn't use a trunk line unless I was going with at least 10 feet of tubing OUTSIDE of a cooled environment, such as in a wall.

agreed, Trunk line would be overkill. Just blow the air up into the PVC from one end. Open it on both ends to it can circulate.
