Hi all,
Took me ages to finally get my co2 tank filled, and I thought it be easy from then on!
No chance, always something to fix or buy.
Anyways, found my regulator not functioning (like me!).
TBH it was a PITA anyways, and now as you can see with a full tank, visually it crap.

So i need to get another one ASAP.
Didn't like the dial set up. and now know the readings were totally wrong.
this has gas feed underneath.

Can anyone recommend one with the grey gas fitting like mine, so it'll be a quick setup?
Thank you.
Bri

Hi Bri
Not seen you around lately, thought you might have gone to the great FV in the sky.
Did that regulator ever work, it looks to me like the gauges are the wrong way round, ie the one on the left should be the low pressure side, if that's the case the gauge on the right will be knackered now anyway.
If you speak to the likes of Malt Miller or Brew UK they'll probably be able to supply a reg with the 3/8" John Guest fitting already on.
Good luck.

Bri

If you want to pony up a few quid then the micro matic ones are the nuts if you want to mount them remotely.

Probably right-way-round, here's what looks like the direct replacement (with fancy splitter) from Angel Home-brew (https://www.angelhomebrew.co.uk/en/kegging/302-dual-gauge-gas-regulator-with-y-spliiter.html):

Personally I consider all these single-stage CO2 cylinder regulators as "Neanderthal". But I know my alternative setup can also be considered as "lunatic fringe". (Note I am nice to myself and consider I'm on the "fringe" and not that I'm just a complete "lunatic" like everyone else thinks).

I've got a "Neanderthal" regulator I don't use if stuck for a (very cheap) replacement? I've tried giving it away recently, but I'm still lumbered with it.

Where did you get your Micro Matic regulator from? They're not listed on the UK website so I've dropped them an email to ask but wondered if you've found another stockist.

Sorry, it was 6-7 years ago but it was definitely a UK stockist.

The Italian one that Malt Miller sells is the one I have. No issues so far, coming up on one year of constant use. I've seen cheaper ones out there but you pay for what you get, as they say.
