oh. well, i just used steel pipe, it handles the pressure and regulators cost too much. the one on the site i tried to show you uses

1x 3/4" to 1/2" steel reducer*
1x 3/4" steel pipe about 6" long
1x 3/4" elbow*
1x 3/4" ball valve
1x 3/4" pipe 3" long
1x co2 adapter
1x pvc 1 1/2" to 3/4" reducer
1x 1 1/2" pvc pipe

* instead of a reducer you can just get an elbow/ reducer 3/4" to 1/2"


adapter goes to reducer to elbow to 6" pipe to ball valve to 3" pipe to barrel.
