system's restriction controls the flow rate of the
beer from the beer
faucet. Essentially most of the restriction comes
from the beer line and gravity.
you system has a lot of vertical rise or fall (up
and down) gravity has a .5 lb/ft of restriction. The
best way to determine the right length of line for
your kegerator is to take the ideal pressure (call
the manuractorer of the beer), add 5 then divide by
the line's restriction value per foot. Then if the
beer pours too slow for you, shorten the line 6"
at a time.
recommends keeping thier beer at 36 degrees F.
can call the brewery and ask for any of this information)
Molson recommends 10 psi at 36 degress for the beer
you are serving.
Typically your line wil have 3lb/ft of restriction.
10psi plus 5 (to slow) = 15.
15 divided by 3 (line restriction value) = 5 ft of line.
The kegerator needs 5ft of line at 10psi.
