    Haven't tried them myself, but I'd be suss on them without any sort of PRV.
    Personally, I would just spend the extra $ and get a ball lock head. Can still force carb with it, but have the option for using a tap on it too (and have the PRV on it). I just don't see the point of the carb caps

    Anyone have any problems with the out posts on there mini kegs? I can't connect a beer disconnect to save myself. I've tried 4 different ones to no avail. The machining on the outpost compared to one from my 19l keg is different. The mini keg one is the top one on the pic.
    I've also attached a pic at my attempt at connecting beer disconnect.

    Are they the wrong way around? Try the beer disconnect on the other post and try a gas one on that post

    if it doesn't - grab some 'k-flex' pipe insulation from the big green shed and run the line through that. Should act as sufficient lagging in warmer weather. Works for my portable setup in brisbane.

    Yes I've had a issues with the posts also.
    No real dramas getting the disconnects on but getting them off is extremely difficult.

    I've tried both gas and liquid thinking they were mixed up bit that way certainly doesn't work.
    It's a machine issue with mine at closer inspection too.

    Are these the same posts as regular 5 gallon soda syrup posts?

    The kids swimming noodle has survived the chop again .

    I actually switched the posts around last night and it worked a treat. Great unit but yeah the posts definitely aren't machined correctly. I got it working which im happy with though.
