If you have a kegerator that dispenses a commercial beer keg, with a 5/16" inner diameter gas line and 3/16" or 1/4" inner diameter beer out line, this kit includes everything you need to convert it to dispense ball lock home brew kegs. What you do is first cut off the existing wing nut and nipple from your gas and beer hose at your existing sanke tap, and fit threaded fittings to them so they can easily switch between the included threaded ball lock fittings, and your newly threaded sanke tap (sanke tap threaded conversion fittings included).Once you convert your kegerator with this kit, you can easily change from your Sanke commercial beer tap to ball lock fittings for homebrew in about 3 minutes. Switch back and forth without having to cut any lines, or pry hoses off of stubborn hose barbs. Includes our complete, step by step, photo-illustrated instructions.
Note: This fits all Sanke heads sold by William's Brewing and most other Sanke heads, with the exception of the low profile Sanke head sold by some other suppliers. This low profile head has inlets and outlets that come out horizontally on the sides of the coupling head, instead of having a beer fitting on the top and a gas fitting on the side like the standard Sanke couplng head.
Works fantastically. The only problem I've run into is that the extra height on the Sanke coupler makes it difficult to fit Sanke sixth-barrels into your kegerator if you have very little headspace in your system.
The exact equipment I needed to use my homebrew Corny kegs with my kegorator I got. Beats having to buy all the parts individually.
I planned on buying parts and doing this from scratch. I am glad I found this kit. It was simple and easy to do. The instructions are perfect. In about 30 minutes, I had it installed an the beer flowing.
Pros: We bought 4 for our Pub, and I'm going to order 2 more so we can have 6 beers on tap.
Pros: This kit was very easy to install and works great. At first, I thought the price was a bit high, but if you compare buying the pieces separately, it works out the same. I plan on adding another tap and will get the pieces to add additional beer and gas lines as this is a huge time saver switching back and forth. Cons: The little white plastic spacer can be easy to lose so be careful!
