I wanted to keep the liquid hardware in my Keezer stainless, but the only tail pieces I could find were 1/4". That makes my beer line lengths rediculously long- about 20' per faucet based on the L=(P-(H*.5)-1)/R formula. Anyone know where I can find a 3/16 SS tail?

I use 1/4" tailpieces with my 3/16" line attached via 1/4" threaded disconnects. It makes for a nice tight fit.

Here is a shop with 3/16 stainless tails (part #55384-3 for straight and #55388 for bent), might want to email them just to verify that they are stainless and not brass.

Thanks for the link - I think I actually looked at that site before, but just didn't see it! I have emailed to confirm the material.

Let us know what they turn out to be, although with my wallet's current condition it will probably be brass for me...

From what I have seen on their site they don't have 3/16 SS tails only 1/4 SS. The rest are brass.
