Title: Upgrade!!!
Post by: scarecrow on August 26, 2016, 09:56:38 PM
Well got the new beer fridge.  Everything is now hooked up.  I decide to go all internal. So I know the gas pressure is going to be lower reading now on the Guage. Any ideas on what would be a good psi for 2 pony kegs With a 4 ft liquid line would be? Here are some pics and the taps are an old set of motorcycle grips.(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/c08ffec3443072b8d8e1fe5bf79bf632.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/589e232106ddecc16d7b5f8a839664ad.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/a1ee946afd4fca4bee4a82e6f92d2d38.jpg)(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/a57830b9f1b771871d2baa6baa12083c.jpg)

Pressure is determined by desired level of carbonation and temperature. I have mine at 15psi/45°F. This would be way too high for 4 feet of line. I think you should replace the line with minimum 8 feet, if it's too much you can trim it down.

The chart below will help you determine the pressure needed. Calculators exist to help with line length as well.
