Good move. Just some more use ideas with the dual: I have three taps on my keezer but a dual regulator. One regulator has a cross attached with three disconnects for regular serving. The other has a "T" with two disconnects so I can serve soda or hit a newly kegged beer with 30 psi for 24 hours if needed. In addition this regulator is used as my utility regulator if I want to push starsan/etc out of a keg. Technically, I guess, I would be able to serve 5 liquids if I added two cobra taps.
Tap 1: VeedVacker Hefeweizen
Tap 2: EdWort's Haus Pal Ale
Tap 3: Penny Lane British Bitter
Kegged: Bourbon Barrel Porter
Primary 1: Cascadian Dark Ale
Primary 2: Stormchaser Pale Ale
On Deck:, ???

This was my thinking as well when I purchased by dual regulator setup.

Reg-1 has a 4 way manifold attached to serve & carb all at the same psi.
Reg-2 will be set up to serve Soda or other "utility" uses (High psi Force Carb, pushing liquids around, etc.) without having to mess with the pressure dialed in for Reg-1
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.
