Hey everyone. I'm putting together a keg system and I have a question as far as tubing goes. I have ball-lock kegs and I was looking at the quick disconnects for the gas in beer out lines that are screw ons. I'm looking at the 1/4" flare fitting, but how do I determine what size of tubing I need. The web site is suggesting 3/16" tubing but that seems small. 3/16" tubing will be perfect for my beer dispensing needs, but I want to make sure that the piece parts I get are going to fit. Any suggestions?

Here is the link for the items I want to get.

3/16 for the beer line, 1/4 for the gas line. To get the 3/16 hose to fit the bigger connection, dip the tip of the hose in boiling water and work it around it. Don't forget to clamp, especially the gas lines!!!
