Our Ball-Lock Keg Pressure Tester fits on the gas side of any ball-lock keg, and can monitor pressure of a keg that is not hooked up to a C02 line.  This can be very useful in monitoring the progress of natural conditioning. 0-40 PSI range, fits ball-lock kegs only.  Includes ball lock gas connector, Duotight Adapter, and KegLand Pressure Gauge.

The gauge features a rubber surround to protect against shocks, and swivels to accommodate different viewing angles.

Keg Pressure Monitor

Review by Michael S. on 7/13/2008

Pros: Great piece of equipment. I now have three, and have them permanently fitted to my kegs. Just a glance, and I know how my conditioning is going, or if I have any leaky seals.

Cons: None found so far.

Measures Pressure but disappointing

Review by Jesse on 9/6/2011

The gauge works but I've found that within seconds of attaching it the pressure inside of the keg leaks through the gauge. So to get an accurate reading I have to attach it and immediately note the initial reading before the keg starts losing pressure and the needle on the gauge drops. I'd like to keep it attached to the keg as the other reviewer noted but I haven't had any luck on any of my kegs because of the pressure loss.

Great tool for monitoring carbonation

Review by Gustavo on 1/20/2012

I have several kegs carbonating at the same time, this makes it simpler to just go around checking them to see if they need to be adjusted w/o having to connect the co2 tank regulartor on each.

Works for me.

Review by Alexander on 11/9/2012

Handy way to quickly check pressure in kegs that are not currently connected to co2. I haven't left it connected for any great length of time, so my review is based on momentary testing.

I have 4 of these now and they work like they are suppose to. I have been using them for over 6 months now. It sure is nice knowing that my keg has not lost its pressure.

Q: This seems totally useless. One would need to know the pressure, but also simultaneously need to be able to add gas to increase pressure. Doing only one or the other makes no sense unless I'm totally missing something.

A: The keg pressure gauge is used for people who are fermenting their beer in the keg and need to bleed off extra pressure using the pressure release valve on the keg lid. This combined with the Top Draw (item R47) will allow them to drink carbonated beer as soon as fermentation has ended without needing to force carbonate or prime their beer.

Q: Could this be used with an in line regulator to set the keg pressure? If you change out the gas disconnect with a liquid?

A: No, that won't work. What you need is an inline pressure gauge item number D10.

Q: If I understand correctly, I could use this with a keg carbonating lid to measure when the correct head pressures is achieved

A: Yes, this will indicate the the head pressure of a keg when the Carbonating Lid is installed and gas it hooked to the Carbonating Lid.

Q: Greetings! Does this include the QD? Is the mount on the back of the gauge ffl? Or is there an adapter involved from more standard mpt to get it to ffl? Thanks.

A: This includes a gas ball lock disconnect. The mount on the back of the gauge is ¼" male flare. MPT threads are not present on this product.
