Hi Team,
Recently I bought a Kilkenny tap off ebay with the idea of putting it on my series 3 Kegerator font. The dream is to set it up for stouts + red ales (potentially running nitro, although is just CO2 for now).
Unfortunately it does fit :-(
The width of the thread on the Kilkenny tap is ~20mm
The width of the thread accepted on the Kegerator is ~25mm

Can this be done? Are there any adapters out there that could do the job?

Appreciate any advice you can share!

I believe that the size on the kegerator is 3/4" BSP the width of the Kilkenny tap indicates it could be 1/2" BSP . Don't take it as gospel but if you have any BSP fittings lying around in the shed check them against the tap and female size on the kegerator, if they are BSP then you will be able to get a reducer.
