I'll try and send a pic of it for you. Cost would be around $22. We saw you were keen to get heights for the 5L keg, we are taking pics and will give you measurements shortly. Hopefully this helps with your esky set up.
Cheers, I just bought the reg and will buy the adapter once it's available on the site, understand it'll be on back order.

You guys really go out of your way to help out, mass appreciation!

even gives some locations for filling them
Unfortunately it doesn't look like they've asked the venues if they'll fill them. So I'd advise checking first to avoid disappointment.

Hey Ross we personally call all the breweries listed on our site and the ones listed have advised they are happy to fill. In saying that over time they can change their mind about filling as sometimes a new manager comes on board etc... this all depends on their license and some venues prefer to fill glass over stainless or flip top over screw top. That's why we also suggest on our website to call the venue first to avoid disappointment and check their preferred filling times. The locations listed are listed as 'growler filling' not specifically keg filling as most locations prefer 2L due to time. Please let us know if you've visited a venue and they've refused to fill, we will touch base with them again and update our site. Cheers mate

Awesome stuff!

Would it be any trouble to get the height to the top of the plastic ball locks? I won't actually have a tap attached to them just a line

Cheers

Well sorry, that isn't quite true - you didn't call us.

We are Bacchus Brewing Co & we have never filled S/S growlers, our licensing set-up doesn't currently allow it (though we are working on it). It's hard enough already with people turning up & being dissapointed when we won't fill, it certainly doesn't help if there's a site saying we do.

Ross, I'm sorry there has been a miscommunication. I'll chat will our team as we were advised you fill glass - we sell 2L Amber Glass Growlers. We definitely don't want you having people turning up and you not being able to fill nor do we want our customers dissapointed. We will remove the link on our site and look forward to coming in for a beer when we are back in Brisbane.

Hey Damo

Have attached a couple of pics...

From what we can see this if this is the gas bottle you have, this should be the adapter you'll need. Just let us know..

We will let you know once they arrive. We expect they will be $22. Hopefully mid Feb!

Regards

Graham

@beerkat, might be worth adding the SS 90' disconnects to your list, they work much better with these rigs

Without being too cheeky :ph34r: :ph34r: do these come in an elbow? Having an impossible time finding type 30 male to female in an elbow....... if this can be an elbow that'd save me another fitting, else I might try 5/8 to 5/8 in elbow...
