3/16" I.D. vinyl tubing is used for the beer hose in most applications where the distance between the keg and the faucet is less than 5’. The small I.D. (inside diameter) provides the correct restriction to the beer flow balancing against the pressure applied to the keg. This size hose is not appropriate for use in lengths longer then 5' as a higher then normal keg pressure would be required to dispense the beer and this would result in over carbonated (foamy) beer. This brewery approved hose will not rot, swell, or dry out and is unaffected by normal beer line cleaning chemicals.
