Hi there

I finally got my kegging parts from Morebeer but there was a surprise:

The bev-out and gas-in connectors have 1/4" barbs, the tubing that was recommended to get as well, when I bought them, is 5/16" and the barb on the regulator is 5/16" as well.

Do I have to get beer and gas connectors with 5/16" barbs now? They only had one kind at Morebeer though.

Kai

I use MoreBeer also. You ordered the connectors with the barbs on them, instead of the flared kind. You can try to exchange what you ordered for these:

http://www.morebeer.com/product.html?product_id=18270
or
http://www.morebeer.com/product.html?product_id=18276
and
http://www.morebeer.com/product.html?product_id=18264

Or you can just wrap the 1/4" barb with some Teflon tape, put the 5/16" tube on it and clamp it tight. Check for gas leaks with soapy water. You should be all right.
