Well, I've got my first batch in bottles, and the second is fermenting.
I plan to get a keg system in the next few weeks to make my life easy.
Anyone have regulator opinions?
I like the looks of the Micro Matic premiums here (and their on-site feedback is positive), but I don't think they have check valves on the shutoff valves:

I'm about 30 miles from Keg Connection, and I've read a couple posts that their Taprite regulators are good too.

I'm sure both regulators are good, but I'd like opinions from people who have them. One Micro Matic advantage is I can easily add another regulator because they screw together w/o taking apart existing fittings. Other brands require taking apart the brass fittings, then screwing everything back together.

I hope to buy a kit or make a system from various retailers in the next couple weeks.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

i have the micro matic single gauge, and it works great and all i did to add a second line to it was a co2 distributor.

also if you're looking for a nice cheap set up i order this one here http://www.beveragefactory.com/draftbeer/kits/ehk.shtml and added the 5lbs co2 tank came out to about $150 including shipping
