Nitro line length
« on: October 05, 2017, 12:36:29 AM »
My keezer is set up with 12’ 3/16 lines for my co2 kegs and my pour is great.  I am about to add a nitro line with a stout faucet to keep a keg of Guinness on tap.  Is the same length of line right for nitro and the higher pressure?

Thanks

I keep mine the same. It is around 10 feet.

For the most part, the restrictor plate in the faucet adds the back pressure required.

Thanks— I’ll start with the same length.  I am assuming the reply about the restriction is just saying it provides the back pressure to handle the additional pressure used to pour a stout, i.e., the 30-40 psi (not yet sure where my temp will be).
