You could Du99 however you would need a spare beer out and John guest type fitting along the gas line. I have a spare beer out on my gas line but i use that for force carbing.

I just did this. My beer was able to be poured much faster!

I refuse to use the wrong connections so i put a beer dc on my gas line and used that...

Am I the only one with kegs that can take either connect on either post? Is that unusual?

Mine dont. The last time I got a gas disconnect on the beer post it was bloody hard to get it off again.

Yep with the last couple of brewers, on the kegs I import the most common part I have to replace is posts that have been damaged due to mixing up the disconnects.

Go with the other options mentioned above that allow you to use the technique with putting the opposite disconnect on its opposing post.

This. Very upsetting when I first got into kegging.

Surprised this works - that the gas going in purges more gas than it pushes in. Obviously does though. One to keep in the back pocket.

I have had the gas QD on my beer post before and it's definitely harder to remove but I put a bit of food grade silicone lubricant (white grease it's also called) on and it's no problem. I've heard it's good to use on them anyway, keeps the rubber bits healthier
