Subscribed. I have that exact same remote line, and I have a couple of 5gal cornies on their way.

When I get home from work Ill show you what I did. I took the hoses off and screwed in a 3/8" nipple and then attached to my regulator.

Thanks for the link. I think that I am going to go a little different direction with this. I decided to use the mini regulator, a barbed ball lock qd, some tubing, and some 45g cartridges to simply push my beer.

I am no expert but I have a bit of weekend warrior experience with paintball guns and I would be careful using this type of setup.

Just in case your temped don't use a gun regulator, they run at 150 psi on the low end and climb quite high from there.

Secondly there is lubricating oil with nasty additives on the o-rings and in the line which cant be good for you or your beer.

I use a 20oz tank and love it.. I have an aluminum adapter going to a regular regulator, the price per lb is pretty close to a 5gal, and I can get a fill at Dicks sporting goods with better hours than the welding shop - 3.99 for a 20oz fill, and the fifth fill is free !

Do you use the 20oz just for dispensing or for force carbing as well?
