It's awesome and fun but I am finding all the different fittings, connections, CO2 stuff, etc. a bit overwhelming (still beats bottling hundreds of beers!). Thanks

I just meant that I prefer to snap on a disconnect fitting on the other side of the corny as a means of relieving the pressure in the receiving keg. I like it for two reasons. First, it is insurance for me to that I don't accidentally close the relief and then effectively pressurize the whole system. When I use a disconnect (just the grey disconnect with no hose or anything) I am assured the keg is venting. And second, because I transfer from a keg primary to a corny where I cant see the liquid moving, it is easy to put your eye right up to the venting disconnect and feel the displaced co2 coming out and know that beer is moving.

Your eye? Why not just your hand?

Sorry for being late on this one?

Im just building mine this weekend. Only think Im not sure about is what type of line should I use on the liquid side? Should I use the left over 5/16 ID Beer line I have left over or should I use the 3/8 tubing I have that I have been using on my auto siphon?
