I have a five cubic foot chest freezer converted into a kegerator. Since I set this up, I've had a standard regulator and one corny or sixth barrel sanke keg in there at a time. I'm planning to slowly upgrade to having 3-4 kegs total.
I'm wondering if it is horribly inconvenient (or even possible) to try to use a single body regulator with a gas manifold/distributor if you are trying to dispense from 1-2 kegs while force carbonating another. Is it worthwhile to splurge on the nice dual-body regulator, or is that unnecessary?
Here is the dual-body regulator I've been looking at.
