    CO2 hose for brewery

    I'm opening a 5 bbl brewery and wondering how to manage my CO2 lines. As a homebrewer I've been using and really like Evabarrier 6 mm ID tubing for my CO2 on my jockey box, but can I use it for my upcoming brewery? Or should I go with larger diameter vinyl tubing? I would appreciate any meaningful feedback.

    I also need to get some CO2 hose for my 5bbl brewery. What did you wind up doing? I really want my hose in a spring loaded hose reel so it will retract when I'm finished using it. I saw Jasper in one of his Brewery Life videos using hose that is on an overhead reel.

    I bought the Evabarrier 6 mm tubing. We're about a month away from installation. After we open I'm sure I'll have some thoughts about this so if you're interested hit me up again after May 2020. Good luck to you.

    My years as a diesel mechanic taught me to keep the hoses off the ground if possible. With that in mind, I have my CO2, O2, and electrical cord for my portable pump on reels. I didn't like the hose that came with the reels so I changed it out for reinforced vinyl. They work like a charm. Highly recommended.
