ROFL!!!!!! My 3/4 inch hose works GREAT!!!!! naw, I always start at about 6' of 3/16 then cut it back a bit if I have to. Never had to though. Once you dial in your system, I doubt you will ever play with it again (unless you want a diff volume of co2)

My 3/16 lines are 7 footers. They work for basically everything.

I have to replace on line due to an experiment last year with peppermint extract in a beer. Damn line still leaves a minty taste. Tried everything to get rid of it. I can only use 2 out of 3 faucets anyway due to mini fridge size.

So I'll replace that line with some 5 or 6 foot for low carb stouts, though I need a second reg for that too.

keging is the best ! it allows you to have what you want when you want. 26 0z or 13.5 oz. waste not or you wont have any later.

I will be set up for seving at at least two different pressures, so I'll have to dial in twice and keep separate lines for the different pressures. What's ideal for a hefeweizen? 12PSI? 15PSI?

pressure is dependent on temperature for volumes of co2. question is, how many volumes of co2 do you want?

Bird, check out this page. Helped me a lot.

Assuming 40F and a 2-foot rise on your tap, if you want 4.0 volumes of CO2 in your hefe, you need 28 (!) PSI in the keg, and about 10' of 3/16" ID line...

Yeah, I don't drink'em that high either, for a number of reasons. Just picked a random number somewhere in the middle of the "published" guidelines for the style as an example

I find annoying that beersmith shows that vols for hefe's at 2.4-2.8 range, which is really low for hefes.
