This tubing is a favorite among the homebrewing and kegging crowds for its ability to inhibit taste and odor permeation.
From the manufacturer: Unsurpassed oxygen and flavor protection combined with flushability in a co-extruded tube.

Tubing works great. Have switched from a variety of styles of beer. Been through about 10 batches so far, and there is none of that plastic taste I used to get. Used a heat gun to get the tubing over 1/4 in barbs. Worked like a charm

This tubing claims to "allows changeovers from even the most pungent flavors with simple flushing procedures" and this simply is not the case. I have this tubing installed on 10 taps. The first two kegs I kicked were root beer and apple cider. I put a belgian blonde and a blue moon onto the taps after these. I cleaned the lines with a no rinse line cleaner, then starsan, then hot water before hooking up the new kegs. The belgian blonde tastes and smells strongly of root beer for the first ~3oz poured and the blue moon is a strawberry blue moon for the first ~3oz poured. This line simply does not protect against the flavor or odor transfer from the previously contained liquid. I will say that with a heat gun it is fairly easy to attach to taps/disconnects, but it's stiffness makes it somewhat difficult to work with. Overall I am quite disappointed.

Just got mine in today with the 1/4" hose barbed quick connects. +1 on using the harbor freight heat gun. I put the heat gun on low (The gun says thats 430 degrees) and clamped it on my workbench so it was pointing straight up. I would heat the metal barb for about 15 seconds, and the tube for 7 and it slipped on pretty easily.

This stuff is great. After a bad experience with vinyl, I decided that I never wanted to taste anything but my beer ever again. This tubing really fit the bill. I can ignore a tap for weeks, and the first ounce out is just as tasty as the last. No taint or off flavors at all, regardless of how long the beer sits in the lines.
Getting the lines over 1/4 inch fittings wasn't too tough. Boiling water and a pair of needle-nose pliers to act as a reamer was all it took. Patience helped, too: rather than trying to heat up a long section of line, I only heated the area being worked. Getting the fittings on a little at a time was much easier than trying to force them on in one go.
Overall, highly recommended. These lines are great, and I'm sure will last a very long time. Best of all, no taint means no off-flavors and no waste.

Do yourself a favor and buy a cheap Harbor Freight heat gun (I paid $9.99). You'll need a heat source of some kind to get this tubing on the barbs. I'd also highly recommend using MFLs due to the extra effort. Really, though, it wasn't nearly as tough as I thought it was going to be. The key is to only use as much heat as you need. Just add a little heat at a time and pay close attention to keeping the tubing going straight and it goes on nice and easy. Once it's all done the end result is really worth the effort. I'm using 10 feet of line at about 11-12PSI and the pour is great so far. Highly recommended.

This is the only place I was able to find this bev tubing without having to buy 1000 ft of it. The build quality is better than any bev line i've used/seen.
As other reviewers said, getting the tubing over the barb is a PITA (boiling water worked for me) but the end result is worth the effort.
Zero plastic taste from first use. Beer tastes like its straight from the brewery tap.

i have 4 taps with about 12 feet each so this was perfect.. like many have said before, very difficult to get onto barbs.. i used a heatgun to slightly soften the line and heat the barbs and they easily went on with minimal effort (once you get the hang of it).. best part, they mold to the barbs so no need for clamps.. absolutely no off flavors from them!

Great price on a highly regarded product that's not easy to find. It is hard as nails to get the line soft enough, long enough to get it over a 1/4" barb, but it's not impossible. I found success with a Phillips head screwdriver, soaked in near boiling water with the tip of the line. Let sit for 30 seconds or so, push the driver into the line about a half inch, then put it back in the water for a few seconds. Remove from water, pull out driver, insert barb and push / wiggle. Be sure to have your beer nut then clamp on the line before you get into the barb part or you'll be cutting the line off the barb. Once it's on, I don't see it coming off.
