All bev lines created equal?
« on: June 18, 2010, 06:00:33 AM »
I started kegging a few weeks ago.

The initial lines I got came as Bevlex 200 3/16".
I've recently purchased some more line and it is Perlick 3/16".
Both PVC I think.

Should these lines have the same resistence or can different brands vary?  I think the Perlick was advertised as 2PSI per foot but I haven't found info on the Bevlex.

I just have a picnic tap setup at the moment.  I put 20 feet of the Perlick on a Belgian I have sitting at 15PSI and I still got quite a bit of foaming so I'm wondering if it has less resistence than the Bevlex.  Could be because I'm coming to the end of the keg though.  That seems to cause more foam.

If they are the same size and type, then they should both have virtually same resistance.  I think i have the same 2 brands in my kegerator as you, and have  never noticed a difference between them.
