Next we need to attach the beer and gas lines. This is the hardware needed to do this:
-1/4" barbed swivel nut from Northern Brewer part number K123
-Flared nylon washer from Northern Brewer part number K127
-1/4" barbed fitting to 1/4" female NPT adapter from US Plastics
-1/4" pipe to 1/4" push connect adapter (see picture below) from Lowes. I have recently decided to add a push connect valve
(as pictured at the beginning of this thread) instead of the straight fitting because it makes cleaning the cobra tap much easier while there is still beer in the mini keg.
Make sure to wrap the threads with 6-8 wraps of Teflon tape prior to attaching it to the female barbed fitting.
-3/6" I.D. Bevflex beer line from Northern Brewer part number K052
I use a 12 foot length of tubing for a foam free pour. (Kobra taps tend to need much more tubing than regular faucets)
-3/16" I.D. vinyl tubing from Lowes. This will be the gas line. Make it as long as you need it to connect from your co2 tank/manifold, to your mini keg.
-3/16 barbed liquid/gas check valves from US Plastics
This prevents beer from backing up into your gas line.
Attach the 1/4" barbed swivel nut and washer to the tap:
Attach the push connect fitting/barbed fitting to the tap:
-Attach the gas line to the barbed swivel nut, then to the check valve (make sure you install the valve to allow the gas to flow to the keg), then to your Co2 source.
-Attach your beer line to the barbed liquid out from the tap, then to your tap/faucet. This quick disconnect allows you to detach your beverage line (without tools) for cleaning. This is the end product:
You can also add a schrader fitting instead of a flared fitting to make this portable:
Or you can make an adapter to attach to your flare fitting:
