It'll do - Price looks pretty average. I paid $60 for my 4-way.

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

Was yours one continuous manifold? I'd prefer that, but can't seem to find any even close to this price.

Mine is just like this, but with MFL ends on the valves instead of barbs - I like to be able to move hoses around.

I bought it at my LHBS.

I just got the 5 port version at wholesaledraft and it works well. Also, it was shipped the same day and I had it in 2 days (with regular UPS ground)! You may actually get it the next day since you are in MI as they are. Only downside is that you will be taxed.

FYI...this was the cheapest price I found for a 5-way with a safety valve.

See my review here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/whol...ft-com-198178/

Aweosme retailer. I highly recommend them.

Thanks for your input! Yea these have been the cheapest I've found too for a 5 or 6 port. I can't even find them anywhere else around the same price... glad the site worked out for you!
