Regulator Accessories

A draft beer system is a great way to dispense beer from kegs. A draft beer system has several components that work together to create a successful pour, one of the components is the regulator. The regulator connects the other parts of the draft beer system to the carbon dioxide tank to ensure that the brew is dispensed at the right pressure. Without the regulator, the pressure from the tank will be immensely strong thus making it difficult to dispense the homebrew.

Home brewers who are still testing the waters can opt for a single gauge regulator that dispenses beer to one faucet. However, if you want to effectively dispense more than one homebrew keg simultaneously, then getting a multiple dispenser is a better option, but this will need a distribution bar to distribute the pressure evenly throughout the many faucets. (more info below)

On the other hand, if your keg has a problem maintaining the same pressure, you may need to use a secondary regulator. A secondary regulator can run more than five kegs from another gas tank. Whether you get a secondary regulator or not, the pressure should be maintained between 10 and 15 PSI for carbon dioxide tanks while nitrogen tanks should have a pressure between 30 and 40 PSI.

A regulator might be small but it can perform its functions for a long time. Make sure that the air tank is always kept upright otherwise it can damage the regulator which can temporarily affect the dispensing capabilities of your draft system until you find a replacement.
