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. Simple analog design, no buttons to push, no batteries to replace.
The gauge features a rubber surround to protect against shocks, and swivels to accommodate different viewing angles.
Note: If beer backs up into your Keg Pressure Tester, it may damage the gauge. Be sure to not overfill kegs when using this, or leave them on their side when full and pressurized.

Q: If I use my keg as a tennis ball pressurizer this will show me tank pressure?….just to be sure
A: This shows the pressure inside the keg.

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.
Works As Expected
Provides immediate readings of the PSI within a 0-40 range. Am actually working with a slightly wider PSI range but didn't read the description before hand or look closely at the images but I'll just use 40+ if ever. All in all, a great tool to have. If WilliamsBrewing had one with a wider range, I'd love to get my hands that one as well.
Does exactly what you want it to do. The price is write.
I batch condition in the keg, this is great for monitoring the progress. I also use it for pressure testing kegs (for leaks). It comes with a ball lock adapter, it’s an easy swap for pin lock.
Keg Pressure tester
awesome device. super handy to have for taking the guess work out of the equation
good tool to have
reads accurately, but stays at reading until next reading, never goes back to zero when disconnected. I still am glad I bought it!!!
