I'm looking to replace my 0-60 psi gauges on my keezer distributor with 0-30 psi gauges but can't seem to find any on the standard kegging sites.

Well KegKits has them but I'd rather light my own fart in a puddle of gasoline than try and do business with them...


If I need to look outside the Homebrew industry norms, what "kind" of gauge am I looking for? Ebay had a bunch but I'm not sure what is the right kind for CO2...or does it even matter?

Would say http://cgi.ebay.com/NORGREN-18-013-0...item4154fcfce3 work?

I recently bought one at Harbor Freight. I don't recall the exact range, but it works just fine. IIRC, the gauge was designed for use with compressed air, but I don't think it makes any difference that it's not specifically for use with CO2. It was also very inexpensive.

Any chance ya'll know the size fitting on them?

1/4" NPT maybe?

Yes, typically 1/4" NPT (right hand threads)
