Description

Add the perfect amount of restriction to any beer line to reduce foam. Eliminates the need for flow control in the faucet itself. Great for use in Jockey Boxes or anywhere you are serving beverages with varying levels of carbonation. 
 
If you are currently using a long length of tubing to increase restriction you can now shorten your tubing. A shorter line holds less beer. Beer that is stored in the line tends to warm up quicker, adding to foaming issues, and is more likely to stale from bacteria present in the line. 
 
Features:
  • Adjust flow with an included Allen wrench (keeps unauthorized people from adjusting the unit)
  • Eliminate foam from beer or slow down / speed up other beverages
  • Fix systems with issues without having to replace lines or faucets
  • Take the guesswork out of line restriction.  You can use shorter lines and still have perfect restriction.  You can also use larger ID lines and adjust as necessary.
  • Easy to disassemble for cleaning, clear body for easy monitoring
  • Made in Germany by CM Becker from Food grade plastic and stainless steel parts!
  • Comes Equipped with 2 x 3/16" Barbs
  • Easy to install to any existing beer line (cut line and install two clamps)

i was having trouble with foamy beer at my tap, hopefully this will help slow down the flow and be able to keep the keg at the proper pressure

Using different styles of beers this will keep pressures balanced for each style.

Ordered one to see how it works. Used it on one line for my jockey box and the other without. Got perfect pours on the one with this while the other foamed all day. So now I'm ordering a second one.

I was having foaming issues and I hope this will take care of them.

I want to test it out before committing to buying a set for my home tap system and may even my brewery tap system.

I currently have a 5ā€™ line going from the keg to the jockey box. Iā€™m assuming this installs in-line with the 5ā€™. How much can I actually shorten the line with the flow control and not run into issues?
Darryl Panzer on Aug 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Darryl - These are normally used for stationary draft lines, the jockey box presents other variables. That being said, with you application, yes between the keg and jockey box. The line between kegs and box can be as short as you like, as pressure is created in the jb lines.
How do you properly adjust this valve? It came with no instructions. There seems to be a thumb screw and an alan key but I don't know if one tightens it and one locks it, or what. I have put 3 different beers through it and one poured perfectly, one was incredibly foamy, and one was somewhere in between all without turning anything. How do you adjust the flow up or down?
Jack Lynch on Jul 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jack - Using the allen key, turning Clock-Wise will slow or stop flow, respectively turning Counter-Clock-Wise will open and increase flow.

Here is a great video on CM Becker's website.

Perfect, just perfect
Far a couple years now I had been trying to get into the keg thing. Somehow I missed that the pressure a keg needs to not go flat has nothing to do with the pressure it pours from the faucet at. Keg pressure keeps beer at proper carbonation. Hose length controls flow thus also foaming issues, duh.

I kept keeping light American beer at like 10 psi so my faucet didn't explode and by the kegs end it was flat. Finally upon more research I realized my beer needs to be at 15-16 psi for keg pressure and I need 8-10 feet of hose for flow rate (I had 5'). So I hoped this was the last piece to the puzzle without having to mess with hose length And it was, put this in my 5' hose, adjusted it to about 1/2 open and perfect.

No more flat beer and proper pour speed. Worth every penny. Now I can also change out beers and easily control flow without messing with line length.

Just The Ticket
I can't get my beer tap quite as cold as it should be to avoid too much foam. The slightly higher temperature beer tastes great, but some carbonation is lost in dispensing. After installing the Flow Control Compensator, I can pour a perfect glass of beer. Well worth the money. I highly recommend it.

This flow control unit is amazing! If you have a two tap kegerator but only have a single CO2 on your CO2 then it can be a nightmare trying to find the balance in pressure for two different styles of beer on tap. An IPA may pour Great at 12 psi while another beer pours better higher or lower. With this flow control unit, you set the psi to the beer on one line while adjusting the flow with this unit on the other line and, viola, both beers are happy. This makes us happy!

If you're running key kegs, you'll need this
We're on a remote island and almost all beer here is distributed in one-way keys. The notoriously difficult key kegs were giving us such problems. We tried secondary regulators, and even put our key kegs upside down on blocks, but still crazy foam issues.

Morebeer sent a batch of these to us out here (very reasonable shipping I might add), and it just worked. Slows the pour down but no foam, and we're saving money. Highly recommended!

Great addition to highly carbed beer
Places this on a five foot line of 3/16 diameter ending at a picnic tap to dispense s highly carbonated saison (21 psi). Took only a couple of minutes and less than a pint to dial in a good level of restriction to pour a glass without excessive foaming. Way easier than using 15 feet of tubing and holding above my head to add some vertical restriction. Glad I got this on sale for Black Friday. Not sure I would have paid full price and it was still a bit expensive. Overall, great addition for my more carbonated brew.

Effective
I first tried this on a heavy Irish stout and was easily able to get exactly the desired amount of head foam out of a picnic tap on a short 3/8" ID beer line, without having to change the pressure on the regulator. Definitely a great device.

*Pros:*
- Indeed, it is easy to take apart for cleaning and reassemble. The hose barbs are on nuts that screw on to the ends, and it can also come apart at the middle using a faucet wrench (or manually, if it's not on too tight), so you don't have to un-do any hose clamps for maintenance.
- Very fine control/good articulation of the flow control "nose cone"
- Good-looking, and it's fun watching the turbulent beer flow through the conical part

*Cons:*
- Price

Overall, this is *really* nice, though it almost seems like overkill for flow control in portable draught dispensing (the purpose I got it for), especially if less expensive alternatives exist. However, if I started a brewpub business, I'd definitely want one of these behind every tap.
