Gas line check valves?

If filled my keg up too full and now I have some beer in my gas line. Ugh! I know there must be some sort of check valve that I can put on right after the ball lock disconnect to keep beer out of the gas line. Can someone tell me what it would be and where to get one?

Wouldn’t it be easier to just put less in your keg? :wink:

I use these on every gas connection after the splitters. However, I still occasionally get a small amount of beer in the line with over-full kegs (or when carbonating through the dip tube). I guess the small amount of head pressure from the liquid column above the gas dip tube + pressure in the keg headspace is greater than the pressure in the line. These things are still a great idea: they prevent regulator damage from beer backing up, they prevent keg-keg gas mixing (your helles starts to taste like IPA…), and they are cheap. Don’t overfill the kegs FTW!
