Hey guys,

I'm helping my dad set up his kegerator when I visit home in a week's time and am not sure on how much liquid hose I should be using. I told him to pick up 20' for his 2 kegs, but the guy at the homebrew shop ended up selling him this stuff that is 2.2 lb resistance per foot. I don't think this is the standard for homebrew kegging, is it? Anyways it's only picnic faucet set up so a minimum length does not really matter, we just want it to pour nice. The CO2 regulator will most likely be set around 10psi for the majority of the time.

Should also mention that it is 3/16" ID x 7/16" OD.

Should be somewhere in the area of 4.5 feet at 10 PSI.
