    No, 5/16 line fits a 5/16 barb. If you have a short run you will require a flow control tap or a 5/16 to 3/16 reducer to throttle back the speed of the pour.

    You are looking at a mini cylinder, around 7KG of liquid.

    These are good:

    Screw on to the threaded part of the QD so no need for barbs or jubilee clips. 3/8" beer/gas line just pushes in, job done.

    As @LeeH has rightly said, you may need a flow control tap or section of reduced diameter of beer line to avoid ending up with a glass of foam. I use short lengths of 3/16" beer line only; and these make it both easy and compatible with the fitting in the first link:

    Kegland have recently released flow control disconnects and they look excellent. I think Angelhomebrew and BrewKegtap sell them.
