I play for the scenario paintball team Pub Crawling http://www.pubcrawling.org . We have more than 20 members on the team and with a name like Pub Crawling we drink a lot of malted beverages after our games. We travel all over the United States to play paintball and have traveled to Scotland and England for events. In order to keep up our supply of bevarages and meet the demands of the team several members have begun home brewing beer. The nature of our travel schedule also requires that we have a mobile system that is able to utilize available resources wherever the game may be. Because we are a scenario paintball team it makes sense to use as many paintball related parts as possible.
To dispense beer from a keg you need a constant pressure of roughly 12psi. This pressure is far below what most inline regulators can go to so a secondary regulator is needed.
Two Adjustable wrenches
Teflon Tape (more of a supply but whatever, use thread sealant of your choice)
Planet Eclipse Inline High Pressure Reg (free part)
Planet Eclipse OOPS (free part)
ASA adapter (free part)

1. Attach tank to regulator and hose to keg co2 in port.
2. Back off secondary regulator so that pressure is essentially off.
3. Turn on OOPS valve to pressurize system.
4. Slowly increase pressure of the secondary regulator until you are at your desired serving pressure.
