If using 3/16 tubing what is the ideal pressure and length I want my hose for serving out of a keg? New to it.

Start with your desired temperature, then use our favorite carbonation table to find the pressure to use for the level of carbonation wanted (hint: 2.5 volumes of CO2 is about middle of the road for ales).

Then use the only beer line length calculator worth using. Comes with an education :)
Or you can pretty much cut to the chase and use 1 foot of conventional 3/16" beer line per the PSI found in the table...

Cheers!
