I use a wallpaper tray to clean and sanitize longer items like racking canes, auto-siphons, spoons, tubing and beverage out dip tubes.  It works great.  These also work well for storing longer items.  If you’re going to store things in these, I would recommend stacking a couple together to give them some extra strength.

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap for PET Bottles – works on gas AND liquid posts – $10.38 + Hands on Review & Draft Line Cleaning Builds

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap Counter Pressure Bottle Filling With 5/16" Barb,CO2 Coupling To Carbonate Soda Beer Fruit Juice Water

Stainless steel ball lock carbonation cap with barb.  Includes replacement o-ring.


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 304 stainless steel will last a lifetime
  • Carbonate,cleaning your beer lines
  • Use it to counter pressure bottle fill PET bottles
  • Easy to install and use,with extra one piece of o-ring for replacement

“The post on this unique carbonation cap has been machined ,so it fit BOTH the liquid and gas ball lock disconnects.”


PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.

Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.

Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed two draft line cleaning projects using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

One of the questions that arises on these carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.

Kegerator Faucet Kit – Stainless Intertap Faucet + Shank & Tubing… $65 at Brew Hardware

KEGERATOR FAUCET KIT WITH FAUCET, SHANK AND TUBING KIT via Brew Hardware

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

You’ve decided to build a kegerator but the number of individual pieces you need to buy for the conversion is a bit daunting. This kit item is our answer to help you get all the parts you need while letting you pick the specifics for your exact application. The kit will get you everything you need to get beer from the keg to your glass assuming you want to mount the faucets through the fridge door or bar wall.

Understanding all your options:

1. Shank Length (the through wall fitting that holds the faucet). The different length simply changes how thick of a wall it will fit through. Keep in mind that the actual accommodated wall thickness is about 1.25″ less than its rated length. For example, the 3″ shank can get through 1.75″ wall thickness. All options are 304 stainless steel with a 1/4″ Bore. All shanks require a 1″ diameter hole to be drilled through your fridge door or freezer collar. The easiest way to measure the wall thickness in a complex variable thickness fridge door is to drill the first faucet hole and stick a tape measure in there.

2. Faucet Type
There are several faucets to choose from at different price points, materials and designs.

The cheapest unit is the Chrome-plated brass economy faucet. These come standard on commercial kegerators and are mostly known for their tendency to get stuck in the closed position after sitting for a day or two. If you are completely bound by budget and don’t mind spraying some warm water in the spout once in a while to unstick them, this is the unit for you.
Next up is the all-304-Stainless Steel forwarding sealing design. The Intertap faucet is a new offering from Keg King and is based on the old popular Ventmatic faucets. Never before could you get a forward sealing faucet in stainless for under $40 and these are under $30! We like these quite a bit and due to the build quality and value, it’s the standard option for this kit.
The last option would be the Intertap Flow Control for people that want to perfectly dial in their pour rates even with variable carbonation levels.

3. Keg Connection type.
Select the type of keg you are connecting to:
Ball Lock Corny kegs. The kit will come with the ball lock black beverage QD. This is the default setting.
Pinlock kegs . The kit will come with a pinlock black beverage QD.
Sanke commercial beer keg. The commercial keg option adds a Stainless Steel Sanke Type D coupler to the kit. Note: it does NOT include gas hose.

All kits include 10 feet of Accuflex Bev-Seal Ultra 235 beverage tubing and the appropriate fittings to connect from the back of the shank to the keg connector you have chosen. All hose connection parts that touch liquid are NSF and FDA Certified.

What is NOT included: The handles for the faucet.The gas side connections, pressure regulator, co2 tank, etc. This just gets liquid from your keg to your glass.

 

This combo from Brew Hardware gets you a stainless Interap faucet (these are awesome, see a link to my review below), a shank tubing a QD (ball or pin lock) and related hardware all for just $65.  That’s a bargain.  Additional options (including sanke, flow control faucet and different shank lengths) are available for an additional cost.  Check product page for current price, description and availability.
