Default Secondary regulators...

Where do you guys running multiple kegs off a single CO2 bottle source your secondary regulators from? I mean, i suppose if it comes to it i can adapt a single gauge primary regulator if i have to, but i was hoping for a slightly cheaper option.

Asked my local welding shop and checked mcmaster and their line regulators are both more expensive than the brew shops single gauge primary.

Secondary regulators are expensive. That's why I went with a dual output primary and then manifolds off each of those outputs. It really depends on how many different pressures you need.

My issue is i've already got a primary regulator. I'm not going to invest 120$ for a dual body reg when i could pay 80$ and get a secondary from mcmaster or even just 50$ and get another primary and adapt it over for maybe 10$

You could just add a second primary regulator body to your existing reg...

Cheers!
