This converts a Sankey Keg so it can be easily cleaned, and used with ball lock disconnects. Includes a gas in and beer out ball lock post, as well as a 0-30 PSI pressure relief valve. A special Tri Clamp gasket is included that is grooved on one side to seal the lid, and smooth on the other for a positive seal with the smooth top of the Sankey.  A flexible silicone beer pick up tube hose is provided. Our filter item I41 fits this pick up tube for those who like to experiment. The relief valve and posts are standard Corny style, and can be easily replaced if needed.

To fit this, you will need a Sankey Keg with a 2" Tri-Clamp opening which has had its circlip and spear removed (lots on Youtube about how to do this). Then just install the 2" Tri-Clamp gasket smooth side down, and fasten clamp to complete your conversion. Pictured keg is not included.

 Note:  Kegs that were full of commercial beer are the property of the brewery listed on the keg, not the property of person who paid the deposit for the full keg.  These should be returned to the beer seller so the brewery can continue to make money and stay in business!

A good option for Sankey keg conversion

Review by Bill T on 8/30/2019

Using Sankey kegs used to be impractical for homebrewers, because cleaning and filling them requires special equipment. This lid is a game changer. Remove the spear and the keg is easy to clean using the same commercial or homebuilt keg use on your corny kegs. Fill the keg with beer and seal the lid,and pressurize, or seal and pressure fill the keg. The ball lock fittings work just like on your corny kegs. Oh, and did I mention that you can use these lids on any size sankey keg that uses a spring-type spear? Not sure if it will work on the newer screw-type spear. Perhaps they'll make this for pin lock users also?

Pretty neat.

Fits like a charm. Although I'm a bit worried about excess foam from such a small out tube. But hey, if it gets me more kegs it'll be great.

No more spears

I bought 2 one worked fine. The other would spit then flow with alot of foam then go back to spiting the same cycle over and over. Took the liquid post off used my manufacturing engineering skills and discovered the mini dip tube would not allow full compression of the poppet. Dip tube was a wee bit long and would butt up against the poppet semi-sealing the flow path. Lapped off aprox .125" of the tube length and all is well.

Q: Are the liquid and gas posts removable and interchangeable?

A: Yes, they are removable and their location could be swapped.

Q: Why isn't this offered with the floating cask widge? Is that even a thing anymore? Ali Express only shows a different filter that has to use a separate ball float (you can edit that part out if you choose to post this.)

A: That is an excellent idea. We do not have a cask widge float/filter that fits this, although we do have our filter item I41 which does fit the flexible dip tube of this product. It does not include a float, although it has eyelets where a fabricated float could be attached with a bit of fishing line.

Q: Regarding the 3.75" height addition, I have two questions. First is that including the stainless QD fitting or is that just to the top of the post? Second, if you only had a gas QD on the angled gas post (and nothing on the liquid post), what is that height clearance?

A: The 3.75" height includes the stainless quick disconnect. With just the gas quick disconnect attached it measures 2.75"

Q: Can this be used t pressure ferment in a sankey keg

A: Yes. All you would need is a spunding valve to keep the pressure under 50 psi.

Q: You note there is a pickup tube. Is this just silicone tubing or does it have the stainless float as well?

A: This is just silicone tubing, it does not have a float
