Color Code Keg Posts for Quick Identification

Valuebrew has an exclusive color coded option for keg post o-rings.  Blue and Green.  These are sized for ball lock kegs (although there is a workaround for pin lock kegs, see pin lock section below).  You can use these however you’d like, but the idea is to color code you keg posts for easy identification.  They recommend Blue for Beer and Green for Gas.
