3 Valve Manifold...4 Kegs
« on: February 04, 2012, 12:25:23 AM »
Is there a way I could split one the gas lines from the manifold to accommodate two kegs?  Maybe there is some type of inline T-fitting?

Well, you've got to order it and pay for it.  Asking is not likely to be enough ;)

Thanks.  Any pressurization/balance issue that I should consider?  Any inherent problems?  Unfortunately, I didn't initially buy one of those manifolds that valves could be added to. :-[

There's no problems, it's just that both kegs hooked up to that gauge are going to have the same pressure, so as long as you want the same volumes of CO2 in each keg it will be fine.

Well I would go with Y splitter where you can put shut off valves with check valves. You can buy those at more beer or northern brewer.

Othervise if you have IPA and Porter hooked up to the same live without check valves you are going to have roasty smelling IPA and hoppy smelling Porter.
