How do you hook up a CO2 tank to a keg?

Attach the beer line to the keg coupler, placing a rubber washer at the connection point. Attach the gas line to the CO2 regulator output barb and tighten screw clamp. Connect the other end of the gas line to the keg coupler and tighten screw clamp. Using a rubber washer and nut, attach the CO2 regulator to the CO2 tank.

What do I need to set up a kegerator?

Youll need two lines to set up your kegerator - the beer line and the gas line. The beer line connects to the keg by way of the keg coupler and delivers cold beer to the tap faucet. The gas line connects to the CO2 regulator on the CO2 tank, then also connects to the keg coupler.

How do you connect a gas kegerator to a beer line?

Connect Beer and Gas Lines Youll need two lines to set up your kegerator - the beer line and the gas line. The beer line connects to the keg by way of the keg coupler and delivers cold beer to the tap faucet. The gas line connects to the CO2 regulator on the CO2 tank, then also connects to the keg coupler.

What does a CO2 regulator do in a kegerator?

A regulator is an essential part of a kegerator dispense system and monitors your CO2 pressure. You can find single gauge regulators or dual gauge regulators, which connect to the air line and read the pressure. With a single gauge regulator, the display will show you your CO2 pressure.

How do you hook up a CO2 regulator to a keg?

Attach the gas line to the CO2 regulator output barb and tighten screw clamp. Connect the other end of the gas line to the keg coupler and tighten screw clamp. Using a rubber washer and nut, attach the CO2 regulator to the CO2 tank.

How do you attach a coupler to a keg?

Connect Keg Coupler To connect the keg coupler (10) to the keg (17), first make sure the black pull handle of the keg coupler is in the closed (diagonal/upper) position. Insert the keg coupler into the locking neck of the beer keg and turn clockwise 25° to lock in into place. Now the keg coupler is secured to the keg.

What do I need to set up a kegerator?

Youll need two lines to set up your kegerator - the beer line and the gas line. The beer line connects to the keg by way of the keg coupler and delivers cold beer to the tap faucet. The gas line connects to the CO2 regulator on the CO2 tank, then also connects to the keg coupler.

What is a keg regulator and how does it work?

It connects directly to the CO2 tank and is used to set a pressure that maintains the proper carbonation level in the beer keg and provides enough pressure to dispense the beer through the system. A double gage regulator has one gage to show the amount of gas remaining in the tank and one for setting the dispensing pressure.

What kind of CO2 regulator do I need for a kegerator?

Before you start, please make sure that your CO2 regulator is firmly and properly attached to the CO2 cylinder. This guide will primarily focus on using a single gauge regulator that is included with most kegerators; however, any regulator that can be used on a CO2 cylinder with a CGA-320 valve will work.

How does a CO2 keg work?

The CO2 tank houses the carbon dioxide, which primarily propels the beer into your glass from the keg. The CO2 is a pressurized tank with such pressure pushing the beer via the keg coupler. The dispensed beer is vertically transported through the faucet tap.

How do I read the pressure on my CO2 regulator?

With a dual gauge regulator, you want to look at the gauge that shows a range of 0-60 PSI (pounds per square inch). To read your pressure on the regulator, you will see an arrow point to your current CO2 pressure in PSI. What pressure should my CO2 tank be set to?
