So I think the line resistance for the 1/4 inch line is .45 vs. .60 based on this post:
http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/fo...ic.php?t=24661

Couldn't fine any resistance for the 3/16, so I emailed the manufacturer - not sure if/when I will hear back from that. If I do it might even let us know if there is 3/16 line available.

So will normal 12 psi beer need 8 feet of line? Perhaps soda would need 25 feet?

I'll take 100 feet. Thanks for organzing this. Do you need payment in advance?

Not sure what you are asking here.

if the line is .45 line resistance for the 1/4 inch, likely the 3/16'' has less resistance as well.

i.e. you need more footage of this line vs. regular beer line of the same dimensions. So if you have 8 ft with bevlex, you might need say 12 feet of this stuff (ball park).

Edit
Maybe use 2-2.25 for line resistance on 3/16 instead of the typical 2.7-3 line resistance to ball park it.

Those are pretty normal lengths for people using vinyl lines. The barrier line has less resistance so you'll likely need more, probably close to double those lengths. My keezer is kept at ~38F, and I push my beers at 11psi using 18' of barrier line, and sodas at 25psi using 40'. The soda line could probably benefit from being a little longer, but it was the length I had left, and I rarely have soda on tap so it doesn't matter much to me. You can also use the epoxy mixer sticks in the diptube to increase resistance so that you can use shorter lines.

I just ordered a bunch of those from mcmaster - you have any idea about how much resistance they add?

Probably like most kegging questions... it doesn't really matter. You simply need to ball park it then do some trial and error.

I'm not sure what the actual resistance is, but to give you guys an idea I went from 12' of vinyl to 18' of bev-seal per faucet (both 3/16" ID). I think my vinyl may have been lower than average resistance to start with though, because all the calculators said I should have been using ~8' instead of 12'. Hope this is helpful for those trying to figure out how much they need.

And FWIW I love this stuff. No plastic off flavors at all (the reason I switched), and I've even used a line for rootbeer, flushed with hot oxiclean, rinsed with water, and then used for a cider without any flavor contamination at all. Try doing that with vinyl. My only complaint is that it's a royal PITA to get it onto a 1/4" hose barb, which is the smallest MFL tailpiece I could find.
I was refering back to this quote when the poster referred to using 8 ft instead of 12 ft for his calculations.
