    Excuse my ignorance, what would you use 1/2 inch ball lock posts on?

    I feel like I'm missing out, and need to know how to incorporate these into my life if so many people want them

    Ok guys. We seems like we have a reasonable number of people wanting this part. If you guys are really in a hurry you can get them from Taylors Turrets but they are quite expensive and I assume you guys want us to make it so we can supply at a sharper price. So we will start drawing this part up and getting it manufactured. It will take about 3 months.

    For a time, Coca Cola used "Rheem" kegs with ball-lock posts on 1/2" threads. Like this one:

    I think the primary reason to use this part is to change the posts on some of the old ball lock kegs. Very fer ball lock kegs use this type of post. It's also used on some of the Pepsi Machinery but generally it's not required by the majority of home brewers. As said previously if we get enough interest from you guys we will make it for you.

    What is the thread on the opening at the top? Is this 2inch 1/4tpi?

    The old Mytton and Rheem kegs use 1/2" posts. The old ones have mushroom seals in the poppets. For me, it would be a lot easier if i could service them with standard poppet orings etc.
    Someone already mentioned that the original 1/2" posts are getting harder to find, not that they need replacing that often.

    I'm sure they could come in handy elsewhere in the brewery as most connections are 1/2". Would be handy to be able to put a ball lock post on something if the need arose. Keg line washing set up, possibly?

    @KegLand-com-au how do you keep track of everyone's requests?

    Also any updates on the chemical resistance of the quick disconnects?

    Yes it's possible the half inch posts could be good for other home brew projects. We are just drawing this up now with cir clip on the underside with a plate so that the post can use our existing universal poppets.

    I use them for sours to pressure ferment in 23L schweppes kegs, have used them with a camlock to purge headspace in the kettle with CO2 when kettle souring, and also to attach a ball lock post to my CFBS hand pull beer engine.

    Yes, need a couple of these, these are horrendously expensive elsewhere. Almost better off buying another second hand keg.

    All of the seal kits, lid seals, dip tube seals etc are also very expensive.

    Picked up 2 1/2" BSP compression fittings this morning, the collection facility is excellent, thank-you kegland.

    I have a question, which way round to the parts I would call olives go?

    Thanks BG, it seems right to me, but they seemed to be assembled like the LHS when I unscrewed them.

    Separate topic but if you could attach some flexible SS mesh to this dip tube you could create a cheap filtered floating dip tube in order to dry hop loose in fermenter. I have set this up but the mesh I ordered was too fine so I get some foaming currently. Just a thought

    I have these and they are perfect, a bit of keg lube helps you insert the dip tube inside. They seem to actually help keep the dip tube submerged as well and avoid sucking CO2 when transferring.
