Gas quick disconnects

Post by mosquat » Tue May 21, 2019 10:05 am

Hi all,

I'd like to try to have a quick disconnect setup for my gas line so I can connect my beer gun when I need to and the rest of the time hook it up to my kegs.

I've contacted www.westgroup.co.uk as they have suitable connectors but they only sell in 10s...so it was going to cost nearly £200 for the 3 connectors I needed...or about 7/8 brews if you prefer ;)

Has anyone else done this before and sourced some decent but not as expensive connectors?

Or perhaps a few people would like to also buy the connectors so we share the burden of the £200 bill ;)

Many thanks

Carl

Lots of online sellers, including eBay. e.g. https://www.brewuk.co.uk/grey-disconnect.html

(Perhaps this isn't what you are looking for? But then what is?).

I assume you can't use ordinary disconnects because your gas cylinder is in a tight space?
I brew therefore I ... I .... forget

No lack of space per se, just thought inline QDs would be easier

Gives me an idea where a carbonation cap might allow me to use a normal corny QD
