Q: I’m asking specifically about this doosan keg? I have one, and have another similar keg with different markings that I can’t find posts that fit for it. The posts from the doosan keg do fit though. They are flared at the base, gas post has two grooves, liquid post has one groove
A: This description matches 99% of post designs. The dooSan kegs are typically a 19/32" post thread, which is the part that would be the functional connection between the post itself and thread on the keg. A caliper measurement of the post threads or opening on the posts bottom diameter opening will confirm if this is the case on that keg specifically
Q: Do you sell or have a source for replacement posts for this style keg?
A: We do carry different post replacement parts. The thread and post needed would vary based on the manufacturer fo the keg that can be found checking the etching in the side looking for a name like Firestone, Cornelius Co, Spartenburg etc for which post you would be in need of a on a replacement
Q: Are these available for pick up in Taylor?
A: The kegs can be made available for pick up by placing an instore pick up order on the site, or phoning at 313-277-2739 Ext 3 to make sure the needed stock is on hand to set aside
Q: What size socket is needed to remove the posts?
A: This will vary a bit as the manufacturers did use different post base diameters but the same connections for the quick disconnect. You can take a quick measurement of the base, which is typically either 11/16" 5/8" or 7/8" for the base on these style kegs
Q: This has a standard set of connections right? Just a shorter tank?
A: Correct. The height is between 22-24" where a standard ball lock sits at 25.5"
Q: If I buy two of these kegs, is it possible to ensure that the same wrench/poppits will fit both? I'd prefer to avoid buying these twice, of course.
A: This can be requested in the notes on the end of the order to ship two kegs with the same post diameter on the outside. This would be based on stock on hand so we can accomodate as best as possible
Q: What is a Poppit? I would like to use these to put wine in to serve in my concierge lounge. I have already purchased a small kegerator. Will I be able to use this type of of keg?
A: The poppet is the small spring valve inside the top of the post. IF the kegerator is set up to serve 1 half barrel keg already, then two of the 5 gallon Cornelius kegs typically will fit in the space on an angle.
Q: So i have this exact ball lock keg i bought from you guys 2 years ago, and its been serving me well for 10+ batches. Recently, whenever I've disassembled the gas and liquid side posts for cleaning, the top of the dip tubes are mangled and bent out of shape. I don't think I've been tightening the posts too much. I also use those "universal poppets" and i think that may be the problem. Any ideas?
A: The Universal Poppets should not be causing you any problems. If you contact us at [email protected], and send us some pictures of your dip tubes, we may be able to help you out.
Q: Are these ball lock or pin lock connectors?
I have 5 kegs from you. Just want to make sure I have the correct connectors...
A: The kegs have standard ball lock connections. Cheers!
Q: are these all Cornelius style kegs?
A: Yes, these are a 5 gallon Ball lock connection keg with a manual pressure relief valve in the lid
Q: I made the mistake of not getting the socket for removing the posts, what size socket should I buy?
A: The post diameter for the socket will vary from keg to keg. This can be determined by measuring the diameter of the bottom of the post.
Q: The listing for the item and all of the answered questions give height as 22-23 inches. Is it variable among the supply available or is there a single defined size that could be given? I have 22.4 inches of clearance where I want to place them, so 22-23 is a bit too ambiguous for me to be confident ordering any.
A: The heights will vary depending on the original manufacturer of the kegs, but if you do place an order, you can request the shorter kegs be picked if available to make sure we ship the shortest kegs possible.
Q: What is the height with the ball locks on this? I am making a "keezer" and the height i have to work with is 25.5"
A: The disconnects typically add 2" over the top of the handle on the keg. The keg heights will vary between 22-24" depending on the original manufacturer of the keg. You can request the shorter height of the kegs when placing an order and we can make sure to pull a shorter keg if needed
Q: Do these kegs have straight dip tubes like Firestone kegs, or curved ones?
A: These kegs will have either a curved dip tube or a straight dip tube based on the original manufacturer of the keg.
Q: Do these kegs come with the dip tube in them? or does it need to be purchased separately?
A: These kegs come with both the liquid and gas dip tubes. Thanks
Q: Can the keg be laid flat in a fridge or cooler, during carbonation and serving, or does it have to be upright?
A: For carbonation, it is best to leave the keg upright. This will prevent any back up into your co2 lines and regulator that may happen when its layed down.
Q: When full, do these have to be stored upright or can they be tilted at an angle? (so the lid on my chest freezer can go down all the way)
A: The kegs can be stored laying down. it is best for dispensing to have the keg upright as this will keep beer from being able to back flow into the gas line tubing and into the regulator.
Q: Any idea when these will be available for sale again? I bought one from you a couple of months ago, but wish I had gotten 3 or 4!
A: These should be listed on the site soon!
Q: You say these kegs are often coming in as converted ball lock. Whats the difference between converted and normal balllock kegs?
A: Hi Mike, thanks for the question! The only difference is that some of these in the past have been kegs that were once pin lock and were swapped over to ball lock disconnect by the supplier. Cheers!
Q: Do these lids have the manual relief valve (pull on ring to release pressure)? I have seen converted pin locks where the relief valve cannot be opened manually.
A: These kegs come with lids with a manual pressure relief valve.
