Reader Tip: 5 Universal Poppets – $9.26 – $1.85 Each Shipped

Universal Keg Poppets

5 universal keg poppets by Happybrew

I use universal poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.

Tip: These fit the vast majority of kegs without issue.  I have had a couple kegs that ended up being a bit too tight with these.  It’s an easy fix.  Use a pair of wire cutters or Nipper Pliers to trim the universal poppet.  I suggest taking off about half of a coil and testing.  You want the QD to slide on easily and for it to reliably hold pressure when the QD is off.  Taking off a half of a coil and testing helps you make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.

7/1/15 9 AM Central: These are selling for $9.26 with free shipping.  That figures to just $1.85 each shipped.  Note that these are currently shipping directly from Asia so shipping may take a bit.  See the “also consider” option below if you need them more quickly.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.
