I use the keg lube on the threads of the canister and keep that little o-ring greased as well.


You can pick up a bag of those o-rings for pennies at a sporting goods store.
Good Idea! - There is more than one use for keg bucket! My regulator came with 3-4 o-rings too.

A spray bottle with water and dish soap works well too. It's what I used to use when I was working on forced induction cars.

I put a new gas bottle on my regulator. Dunked the sucker. One hose clamp leaked bad and the regulator leaks gas through the threads on the knob. SOB....

Here is a link for a portable co2 regulator. Looks like all you need is the co2 bottle attachment, and the will screw right into the gas in side with one of those little co2 couplings. can't beat it for 50bucks. I hate the way homebrewers get ripped off

I cut my losses and stopped using the cobalt regulator. Its a POS! I put up the money for a normal CO2 regulator and bought a paintball adaptor. I waisted quite a bit of money on gas, not to mention the gauge on the cobalt was worthless. Its just like a bike regulator. Gas is either on or off at max psi. I could not dial it down to a serving pressure. It was too high or not high enough to push the beer out the picnic tap.

sorry, need to elaborate on this. i've been looking for a mini regulator for my portable set up. saw it on a brewsite for 130bucks, kinda irritated me to find somthing else so cheap on another site. I just hate the way that they jack up the price for somthing once they put beer brewing in front of it.

here's a link for a plastic conical fermenter with a stand for 119$. I've seen other ones for 300 bucks on brewing sites with no stand, friggin rip off.
