Pro Mini CO2 Regulator

High Quality Mini CO2 Regulator

These are very high quality mini CO2 regulators. They will regulate the flow of CO2 from the canister into the keg & maintain a set pressure while there is enough gas in the canister.

This regulator comes standard with any of our brewers keg packages:

**Important usage notes at the bottom of the page.

**Gas disconnects or our Sodastream bottle attachment or full size CO2 bottle adapter need to be purchased separately or selected from the drop down to the right.**

**Note - Our Sodastream adapters look similar to other SS adapters for full size regulators on the market but have a different thread specific to our mini regs. 

These professional grade regulators are set and forget. Once you set the pressure, at 5psi for example, the regulator will maintain the keg at that internal pressure. When you pour a beer the regulator will inject CO2 from the canister to keep the pressure steady.

The huge benefit of this is that there is no constant adjustments necessary as you pour or between pouring beers. These regulators make it easy for anybody to pour a beer from your system so are perfect for parties, bbqs, beach days etc.

The reg comes standard with an inlet for standard 16g threaded CO2 canisters. Buy packs of 10 gas canisters for $29 here  
Buy a Sodastream bottle adapter here as well as Sodastream bottles here. 
Sodastream bottles cost about $15-25 (30L vs 60L) to refill these and hold the equivalent of 17 to 25 x 16g disposable cartridges.

To use with Full Size CO2 bottles we do have a larger 74g adapter that comes with our specific full size CO2 bottle adapter (sold separately) You will need to change the inlet adapter from the 16g to the 74g to use this adapter - instructions at bottom of page here >

The gas outlet (M-8mm) of the mini regulator fits directly onto our picnic tap spear or screws onto a MFL gas disconnect with a M8 to MFL Swivel Adapter (included with regulator) for connection to ball lock posts on our mini kegs or corny kegs.

To protect your regulator from liquid we recommend one of our gas disconnects with a built in check valve. These prevent any liquid coming out of the keg and into the regulator which will ruin it. This is especially a concern if you want to force carbonate with the keg lying down as if the gas runs out there is nothing to stop beer flowing out the disconnect into the regulator.

Use as a PRV - Pressure Release Valve.

As a bonus - these regulators can be used as a Pressure Release Valve (PRV_ when doing keg to keg transfers. With no gas canister attached you can attached the reg to the gas post on a keg and turn the knob until pressure starts releasing to enable the transfer. How Brilliant is that!

Unfortunately the idea of further using the above technique as a Spunding valve to pressure brew with does not currently work.  
We do have specific VPRV / Spunding valves sold separately here

NOTE: Be wary of any liquid transferring into the regulator. When transferring from keg to keg, if you over fill the receiving keg then liquid could also get into the regulator as well. Only use as a VRPV / Spunding valve if you are confident in your ability. We cannot take any responsibility for faulty regulators due to issues as above.

IMPORTANT USAGE NOTES:

  1. Before screwing in a CO2 canister, make sure regulator knob is in the off position (wound out anti-clockwise all the way so "OFF" is aligned to the small triangle on the gauge top).
    Screwing in with the reg ON can put a lot of immediate pressure on the regulator & gauge and break it. This is not covered by warranty.
  2. Screw in canister quickly until 'hiss' stops. A small hiss of gas is expected until sealed.
  3. Over tightening the CO2 canister can damage the inner seal. Only tighten moderately.
  4. Wind knob in/down to increase pressure and out/up to decrease.
  5. Do not unscrew a CO2 canister if gas remains (ie not empty), unless it is self closing. (ie Sodastream bottle)
  6. Always turn the knob slowly to alter pressure. Fast movements can damage the diaphragm
  7. Do not turn pressure up if gas disconnect or remote gas line is not attached to a vessel as this can over pressurise the disconnect and crack it.
  8. Always do a leak check each use. Lube o-rings for better seal and check connections.
  9. There is a spare white outlet washer included - don't put this anywhere else other than the gas outlet as a replacement.
  10. Failure to follow these instructions can void your 1 year warranty.

Remember:
Grey disconnects are for the GAS post only (angled)
Black disconnects are for the LIQUID post only (center vertical)
