This will definitely make winter brew days inside a lot easier.. I'm using 3/8" beer line...so much cleaner and safer than any RV hose if ya ask me..All fitting are lead free as well...lol

It will also be nice to just disconnect the filter and use the one hose to fill up my kegs/ carboys with starsan. .

Pentek filter, w/carbon blocker..3/4" in and out. 1/2 " to 3/8 barbs and 3/8 " ID bevelex beer line and 3/4 to 1/2" garden hose attachments w/upgraded silicone washers. Can't wait for brew day..

I sometimes wish I didn't have a fancy faucet and could connect things to it, but then I brew outside regardless of the weather. My last brewday was damn cold.

I'm going to be building something close very soon. I have a water spigot in the garage where I brew, its not heated but it gets comfortable enough with a heater

Could you post the parts you used such as the filter? And what does it filter out?

Here is a lot of detailed information:

Water Filter Setup

That one has parts for more "outside" use because it is to hook up to an outside faucet, but with a few part mods, you can use it to hook up to your inside sink!
