Nitro Keg System
A component kit for those who already have a ball-lock soda keg system. Includes nitrogen regulator, 5 lb. nitrogen cylinder, stout faucet with tap handle and 3 inch shank, plus all necessary tubing, clamps, fittings, ball lock disconnects, and instructions. The stout faucet is what creates that famous cascade of foam that slowly resolves itself into a pint of beer. When served "on nitrogen", a beer will have finer bubbles, a denser head, and a creamier mouthfeel than those carbonated and dispensed with CO2 alone. Fill the included nitrogen cylinder with beer gas (a blend of 70% nitrogen and 30% CO2, available at most gas supply companies) and prepare to live the dream.
Please note that by federal law, gas cylinders must be shipped empty; you'll need to have them filled locally. Look under "Gas Suppliers" in your Yellow Pages.

The bottle is good and heavy, my only qualms are the regulator does not have a handle, ball valve, pressure release clasp, and the Pressure indicator does not have the resolution I would expect.
Air line should be about 4 feet longer
Awesome setup for great at-home pour.
It was given as a birthday gift and he loved it. All of the items we have bought have been excellent.
This is a pretty great starter system. The only trouble I had was with the tank. My local shop wouldn't allow that tank to be filled with beer gas (75% nitro, 25% CO2). Fortunately for me, they exchanged that tank with one of their own--though I did have to buy an adapter for my regulator.
