Back checking my numbers above, using the calculator on that website, to get to the 0.75 gpm flow rate I get out of my taps, it says it would require a head of 23.23 ft. And using @Michele Craft number memory, to convert feet of lift to psi, you divide by 2.31, and get 10 psi. So that boxes, since my keezer pressure is in the 12 psi range and that's the rough flow rate I get (and my simplified calculations on the web page don't include any choke/restriction points like ball lock disconnects, and the lift from my bucket of cleaner and the taps). So it seems this calculation/process is in the right neighborhood.
