Well, dang...every thing you need to know.

 This link needs to be a sticky and anyone who has a question in this regard should be pointed in this direction.

Perhaps with permission, a copy could be moved over to this server....or
since it is a PDF, you can get your own copy and save it to your PC.
Not sure how all that works but it is a good nugget for sure.

Yes I had that to help me set up my system.... Someone here gave me the link. It is one of the few pieces that accurately describes the concept of a balanced system.

Since it is published by BA, and this forum is part of BA, I would hope that they wouldn't mind.
Brew on

For anyone who has set up or is considering setting up a home (or commercial) draught beer system, you should check out the Brewers Association Draught Beer Quality Manual.  It is very comprehensive, easy to read, and loaded with photos and charts.

Chapters:
1. Essential Draught System Components
2. Temporary Draught Disspense (e.g. jockey boxes)
3. Equipment and Configurations for Direct Draw Draught Systems
4. Equipment and Configurations for Long-Draw Draught Systems
5. A Matter of Balance
6. Preparation to Pour
7. Serving Draught Beer
8. System Maintenance and Cleaning

You can download the manual in its entirety, or by chapter, for free at www.draughtquality.org.
