If I had both on a keg I would probably try adding a floating dip tube to the gas post and possibly carbonate through the liquid post.

Perfect for my corny kegmenter can put the spunding valve wherever . Nice idea,
Means I can transfer from fermenter to keg without moving stuff around.

interesting idea, commercial kegs use interchangeable QD fittings, but its pretty easy to tell which is which on a keg coupler, still a few cellarmen have had a quick beer shower.
Can see places where an interchangeable post would be useful, but I thought the whole idea of noninterchangeable posts/disconnects would be to idiot proof the system as much as posable. Making mistakes like connecting your reg to the liquid post just that little bit harder.

Sorry, not a fan of making fittings that can fit multiple different designed input output sockets / posts.

The posts were made different for a reason, and that is good design. These things are normally done for safety and / or eliminating the chance of contamination. I like those features in the connectors.

I see there is convenience temptation, but not a fan.

You could add a diptube with a tiny nozzle, making it a liquid CIP post for cleaning your kegs. One keg with PBW being forced under pressure into the soiled keg.

So it's only a small prize but we mainly wanted to see what ideas you guys came up with.

I think some of the best uses could be making extensions with a joiner fitting to create a double ended post to existing lines if you need a temporarily longer line.

possibly good to add onto a fermenter so all your transfers can be done via post and disconnects rather than buying extra fittings like quick disconnects etc. Maybe even usable with pump systems for robobrews.

As they currently are I would use them with this carbonation lid (https://www.kegland.com.au/carbonation-keg-lid-with-2-micron-diffusion-stone.html)
Then I would swap the two normal post with 2 of your multi post and have a Pluto gun connected to each post so at partys two people could pour from the keg at the same time. Could sell a party conversion bundle on your site possibly to. To draw interest

Thats all my ideas at this stage.

I would probably use them to convert the caps that came with my mini kegs into carbonation caps. Also wouldn't mind converting a sodastream bottle cap into a carbonation cap.

Another use I can think of is making a cip jig for my taps and lines that will enable the flow to be reversed with ease. I already use ball lock posts on the back of shanks in place of the barb

Why should we all be made to use the equipment that is designed to stop the lowest common denominator from buggering things up? New equipment/parts like this is great for those who actually have some experience and can make use of them.

What about a burton union system with the gas post on the lower keg going to the gas post (or the beer post?) on the upper keg?
Which post to which? Plenty of options with these posts.
Safety first you will need one post on the top keg running to airlock still.

In the interest of beer conservation & no chance of a disastrous mess, I'll be sticking with my pinlocks!

It would be nice to make a CIP for cleaning kegs but the issue with corny kegs is that the geometry of the keg doesn't lend itself well to CIP.

Commercial kegs with d-type and a-type spears have been designed specifically so all the internal surfaces of the keg get covered during CIP including the inside and outside surface of the spear. Also the kegs when placed upside down drain out completely which is another requirement for CIP to work really well. So as much as we really like the idea of CIP for corny kegs we have not really found a good way to make this work but we are open to ideas.

Maybe if it came with an extra white O ring to put on your gas post or when using it as a gas post.
