    CO2 Leak?

    Hey all, New to the forums here. I'm two 5 gallon batches into moving to a kegging set up. Not even through the second batch I realized I'm already out of CO2. From the CO2 swap place I go to - apparently one of the canisters should last 5 or more 5 gallon batches. So, I'm trying to find the...

    New to kegging. Help please

    Hello all. I’ve been brewing for a number of years, but have always bottled simply because I have a paranoia about gas canisters.... yes, seriously. I decided to bite the Co2 tank (like Jaws) and get into kegging. I have no idea what I’m doing. I just put the beer into primary fermenter so I’ve...

    Removing Tank Pressure Gauge on Taprite Regulator

    After owning a brand new Taprite dual gauge regulator for a few months the tank pressure gauge is now totally destroyed from having the tank fall over too many times. I am now considering removing the tank pressure gauge entirely until I can demonstrate competency in tank regulator ownership...

    Regulator doesn't stop building up pressure

    Hello, I've just run into a problem with my regulator. It's less then 5 month old and maybe used on 2 batches. Even when the regulator is dialed down as far as possible, as soon as I turn on the gas pressure starts building up and it doesn't stop till the security valve lets out pressure...

    Adding a Second Regulator & hose to an Insignia Kegerator

    Got lazy and bought a 2 tap kegerator from Bestbuy and I want to have my CO2 and regulators outside of the unit rather than inside. There is a provision for a single hose on the back of the kegerator but I'm wondering if anyone has added a second hose hole? And if so, where did they locate it...

    Suggestions for a dual regulator?

    I have a standard MicroMatic Dual Regulator: https://bit.ly/2WQz0oE that I am replacing. Any suggestions on different brands, or specific products would be appreciated. This one has been ok, but I think the second regulator (on the left) has not ever worked that great. It has always had pressure...

    Question about a dual gauge CO2 regulator.

    Hey All, Thank you for reading. I just have a question about my dual gauge regulator... I can't get it to turn down under 20lbs of pressure. I have pulled the relief valve and turn the adjustment down all the way until the knob unscrews but the pressure will still not decrease. Am I doing...

    Arrgghh - leaking from backside of regulator (photo)

    Spent 3 hours setting up my used and had water at 25 psi for 12 hours. Came back this morning and upped the pressure to 50psi and started hearing a leak from this middle valve.

    Is my regulator leaking?

    Recently I got an Air Liquide Blueshield Series 45 Oxygen regulator at a garage sale for $10. I decided to retire it for my CO2 system. I had the inlet nipple replaced. I used Teflon tape and pipe dope to seal all the threads and soap test showed no leaks. However I did the following test which...

    Regulator bonnet replacement?

    I've got a regulator that I picked up used from a local on Craigslist. The pressure adjustment set-screw hole is stripped. Fortunately, the regulator otherwise works OK but I'd like to replace the bonnet. The regulator looks identical to this item...

    Hi, First time making cider - I have this standard pressure regulator like most other folks (not this really, but strikingly similar) I've set it to 2.3 bar (35 PSI) and let it sit for some 3 weeks, hoping my 17 C (59 F) cider barrel would carbonate. Result: apart from some nice looking...

    Couple Of Questions About Regulators And Co2

    I’m new to kegging and only have YouTube vids and threads here on HBT to go off of. I have a couple of quick questions: Why is there a metal piece on the threading of my pressure adjustment knob on my regulator? (See pics below) Is it to keep the knob from moving once I set it? Also, I’ve heard...

    Kegging leaks

    Let me start off by saying I am really starting to hate kegging. I have been brewing for several years now and this past winter I finally finished my bar, purchased a fridge, converted to a kegerator, and acquired all the materials needed to keg. To say I was excited was putting it mildly...
