I'm looking into a keezer project, and I'm wondering where everyone gets there kits. I'm looking at having two kegs tapped at all times and want tp be able to carb two kegs at any time as well. I guess I'll need a manifold. Anyone have recommendations?

You'll definitely need a manifold (probably two, two output manifolds. One for each of the gauges). Additionally, if you want to carb kegs at high pressure at the same time you serve at a lower pressure, you will need a dual gauge regulator.

Most homebrew stores have setup kits for this. Check kegconnection, kegcowboy, etc.

The easiest recommendation I can give, is to CALL kegconnection.com at
512-805-3300 or 888-686-3375. I say call because they get hammered with emails and have to play catch up, and when you call, they take care of you right then and there. I called and had all of my million questions answered about lines, manifolds, keg types pros/cons, force carbing, perlicks, etc. and then placed my order having spent LESS than I thought I was going to because I learned there were things I thought I needed in my system that I found out I didn't. Also, the components/hardware is nice stuff, well put together, and worked out of the box with zero problems. I'm sure other companies can offer similar luck, but this is who I went with for my 3 tap system (that I'm already wishing was 4).

So, long story short, and although I know others around here have had issues with kegconnection, I readily recommend them.

With this regulator above, can I "T" off both outputs from the regulator, so I have 2 kegs at serving pressure and two kegs carving at any given time? I guess it would be wise to but some valves online after the lines T off, case I just need one crabbing or one serving at a time. Anyone have opinions here or should I be looking into a 4 output manifold.

Yes, that should work for what you want to do. There are better prices to be had on dual regulators, though. Kegconnection sells a Taprite brand dual reg for cheaper than that morebeer one, and their economy brand can be had for MUCH cheaper. Like an earlier poster said, though, it is much more effective to call Kegconnection than to email. I can attest to that.

Couldn't a person with a single body regulator take a keg from the serving line, and disconnect it. Then carb your new keg, sit it in the corner, and put the other keg back on the line?
