100 feet of 3/16” inner diameter Accuflex Bev-Seal Ultra tubing.   FREE SHIPPING TO THE 50 STATES!

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. 

  • Flushable Glas-Flex™ liner - allows changeovers from even the most pungent flavors with simple flushing procedures.
  • NSF-Certified products - certified under standard NSF-51 for food equipment and NSF-61 for drinking water systems.
  • Dual-Barrier construction - flushable Glas-Flex™ inner liner surrounded by a seamless extruded barrier layer in a coextruded polyolefin tube.
This is a semi-rigid tubing.  The easiest way to install this tubing on the end of a beer shank is by using Birdman Brewing part ACCU-SHANK.  To install on an MFL threaded keg disconnect, use Birdman Brewing part ACCU-MFL.  
To install on barbed fittings, we recommend soaking this semi-rigid tubing in boiling water for approximately 30 seconds to soften prior to pressing firmly on a 3/16" hose barb.  (A 1/4" barb can also work by widening the tubing opening a little more.)  Alternatively, a heat gun works well to make the tubing soft.  We've also found that a small needle nose pliers can be effective at expanding the opening.  We recommend securing the tubing with a hose clamp to ensure it is leak proof. 
NOTE that the tubing provided by the manufacturer for this size of tubing is white, without the red stripes as shown in the picture.

    Quality Beer Line Equals Quality Beer

    Posted by Chris on 18th May 2018

    After three complete vinyl beer line changes on our twenty four tap system, finally a product that eliminates poly vinyl odor and flavor in draft beer. Stop wasting beer and start enjoying the satisfaction in knowing the beer you pour is the best it can be. Installed using the quick connect fittings (yes they're pricey, but worth it) 100% satisfied.

    great deal on some great bev line...

    Read the advice on fitting this tubing over a 1/4" barb fitting. Using a heated phillips screwdriver tip works nicely, not overheating the tubing itself is the key. Very happy with this purchase!

    Good Beer Lines

    Posted by Carl A Sperling on 11th Nov 2016

    I had just updated my beer lines with something I bought from a local shop. The beer tasted awful, tasting like plastic. I gave it a few days to see if it got better but it did not. So, I ordered these as a replacement. The taste is awesome with no aftertaste. The only reason it doesn't get 5* is that they are pretty difficult to put on barb ends. A few screwdrivers and a hair drier and I was able to stretch them out a bit and make them work. Pretty happy overall.

    Less difficult than anticipated

    Posted by Purchaser on 24th Jun 2016

    I have yet to push beer through these lines, so I cannot speak to the lack of plastic taste or line balance. However, I did buy this tubing expecting a near-impossible task of getting them on the 1/4" barbs from my tower. I planned to use heated water and, if that did not work, buy a heat gun. I had no problem attaching them to the barbs without a heat gun. Here is what I did: Heat water to near boiling. Insert tip of phillips screwdriver in hot water as well as 1/2" of the tubing. After 20-30 seconds, remove from water and push screwdriver in tubing as far as possible. Repeat if desired. Leave screwdriver wedged in tubing and re-heat in water along with barb. Once reheated, remove from water and quickly remove screwdriver from tubing and firmly push in barb. The tube was as tight as could be on the barb, but I also used some zip-ties as additional insurance.

    Plastic taste no more

    Upgraded from bevlex 200 to this stuff. Stiff and ridged is the only downfall.. in a small kegerator it is a tight squeeze and has to be manipulated but once you get it into place it works great ! Love it. MUST buy the john guest adapters also to hook it up and disconnect wayyy easier

    Great Stuff!

    I had been wanting to switch to this line for a while. I always had to dump a few ounces of my first pour of the day. I finally pulled the trigger when this sale popped up. I bought the connectors before I remembered that my shanks and tailpieces were all one piece, so I ended up putting the tubing directly on the tailpieces. My barbs are 1/4" and I had a rough time with the first one. I tried boiling water, but kept kinking the hose as I tried to push it on. I finally struck gold when I got out my heat gun. I heated the hose as I was pushing it down onto a marlin spike (google it) and when the opening was wide enough, I pushed it onto the barb. It actually slid onto the tailpiece relatively easily. Don't heat the hose more than the length of the barb and I think it is crucial to make sure you heat the tailpieces so that they are pretty warm so the barb doesn't cool the hose and make it contract as you try to install it So far, I am extremely pleased with the product and the service from Birdman.

    Great product if you use the correct connectors

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Aug 2014

    I'm using this in my 4 keg kegerator and couldn't be happier. It was super easy to install with the push-in connectors, simply push the tubing in and it's done. I'm using 20 feet per keg and it works great. The only negative I can think of is that this tubing is a good bit more rigid than others I've used, but it's definitely not unmanageable.

    Good move on my part

    Posted by Paul on 11th Aug 2014

    After 2 years of use, my 3 hoses seemed to be giving me mixed results even though I get OCD with keeping them clean. I've read about a few types of hoses that are highly rated but Accuflex kept coming up so when I was looking to update my tri-tap tower with new Perlicks, and a new tower to boot, I grabbed 100 feet of this. It's not the easiest to work with and in my small kegerator that can only hold 3 kegs, 45 feet of rigit tubing was a worry. In the end, while tedious to install on 1/4" barbs (buy a heat gun)it's done and I'm elated I did. First pour was a delight and I wasn't expecting much but on all 3 beers, I noticed just how much better they tasted. I got my mojo back!

    Works perfectly

    Installed it on my keezer. Used the fittings recommended in the description. Couldn't be happier. And shipping was FAST.
