Hands On Review: Weekend Brewer CO2 Manifold

Why a Manifold?

co2/gas distribution manfiolds allow you to easily split co2 lines so that you can use a single tank and regulator for multiple kegs.

What to Look for in a manifold

云南快乐十分some features to look for when shopping for a manifold are individual trunk control, integrated check valves, the right connection type, good build quality and… no leaks!

  • Individual control is really straight forward… a ball valve for each trunk.
  • As far as check valves, those are designed to prevent backflow between lines.  Although these are gas lines we’re talking bout, differences in pressure can cause back-feeding beer to flow into gas lines.  Check valves help to prevent that.
  • Look for a compatible connection type – MFL/Flare or the right size barb fitting.
  • Good general build and material quality
  • And… This may sound obvious, but…. look for something that does not leak.  Leaky manifolds result empty CO2 tanks and those are no fun.

Hands on Review The Weekend Brewer 4-way MFL CO2 Distributor Manifold

This particular model features four trunks with 1/4″ MFL Fittings along with a 1/4″ MFL inputClose up of the ball valve.  These feature inline check valves to help prevent back flow.  I chose 1/4″ MFL but the weekend brewer has lots of options available, including a build your own option, linked below.A look at the gas inlet.  MFL “in” connections like this seem to be more difficult to come by.  A barbed inlet seems to be more common.

Announcing: DuoTight Compatible Foam on Beer Detector (FOB) from MoreBeer

云南快乐十分foam on beer detector (fob) from morebeer!


from the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

云南快乐十分foam on beer detectors, or fobs, are commonly used in commercial draft systems as a way to eliminate product waste and increase profits. when a keg completely empties and foam passes into the fob it will shut off flow and in doing so keep the draft line completely full of beer until a new keg is tapped. this means you can hook a fresh keg and continue pouring without foaming issues, preventing you from wasting beer that is otherwise needed to refill the line and purge the system.

the fob can also be used in homebrewing applications as a convenient way to purge kegs of oxygen. check out video below where our friend kee repurposes the fob to move sanitizer from one keg to another and purge the keg of oxygen in the process.

云南快乐十分comes with 3/8″ duotight compatible barbs at the inlet and outlet, allowing you to easily hook up evabarrier tubing with either a 9.5 mm joiner or 9.5 mm to 8 mm reducer (duo113 / duo105). if not using evabarrier, simply clamp the line directly onto the barb.

setup and use:

  • Attach beverage line from outlet of keg coupler to straight inlet of FOB.
  • Attach beverage line from elbow outlet of FOB to faucet shank.
  • Connect fresh keg and push down purge button until the chamber fills with beer.
  • Push bottom knob in to lift float then pull out for normal operation.

from the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

云南快乐十分make better beer!

云南快乐十分hand crafting beer is a fun and rewarding hobby. the first rule of making better beer is to keep everything that touches the beer clean and sanitized. the mark ii keg washer helps to accomplish this task in an easy, efficient, and effective manner.

save time, labor, space and have fun!

the most labor-intensive and time-consuming task in brewing is cleanup. the mark ii keg washer allows you have all your containers and hoses clean by the time your brewing task is done.

many home brewers set aside containers ?to be cleaned later.? this discourages getting started on the next batch.

the mark ii keg washer should be the first piece of equipment you set up and the last thing you put away on brew day or when you transfer your beer from one container to then next.

when transferring beer from one container to the next, we first use the mark ii keg washer to sanitize the container that the beer will be transferred to. then we clean the container that the beer was transferred from.

 

This is awesome!  I have this and like it very much.  It’s one of my favorite pieces of brewing gear.  It’s saved me a lot of time and hassle.  Check out my Hands on Review – beyond the in depth review that includes some mods and hacks.
