Intertap Forward Sealing Faucets – from… $21.24

Intertap faucets combine all the benefits of forward sealing faucets but with an unmatched reliability. Most standard beer faucets use a rear sealing design where the beer that is left in the faucet after being shut off must drain through a vent hole. That creates an ideal place for airborne bacteria and yeast to reproduce creating an unsanitary condition. Intertaps seal at the front which keeps bacteria and wild yeast out of the interior of the faucet.

Intertaps are awesome!  Check out my Hands on Review of these great faucets.

Ends Soon: The Best New Keg Deal Going on Right Now… Kegland 5 Gallon Kegland Ball Lock Kegs – NSF Certified, Unique Hang Tab Design Lids

5 Gallon NSF KegLand Keg from William’s Brewing

More Info

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

Our new NSF certified stainless steel five gallon kegs from Keg Land have two ball-lock male quick disconnect fittings that hold pressure even when not connected, allowing you to have several kegs aging while one is tapped. Also referred to as Corny Kegs or Soda Kegs. Precisely made with smooth robotically welded interior welds for ease of cleaning to stringent NSF standards. Made in China.

Features a 3 by 3.5″ oval lid for easy cleaning, and a pressure relief lid mounted valve for safety. An exclusive stainless hang tap is welded onto the inside of the lid to make it easier for you to suspend dry hopping bags and hop infusers. 25″ tall, and 8½” wide. These require 26″ of headspace once you connect ball lock fittings and hoses. Rubber bumpers on top and bottom protect this keg from damage.


 

  • William’s has these for $114.99 (compare at MoreBeer)
  • No coupon code is necessary. Discounts marked on each product page.
  • Kegland Kegs also have a unique hang tab lid design on their 5 and 2 1/2 gallon size kegs.  This tab is welded onto the inside of the lid to make it easier for you to suspend dry hopping bags and hop infusers
  • Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the contiguous US depending on your order size for most items.

If you’ve read Homebrew Finds for long you’ve no doubt seen Valuebrew’s Blue and Green Custom Color O-Rings in food grade silicone. These are featured in our very popular keg rebuild step by step.

Valuebrew has introduced Gray and Black o-rings. As the picture indicates these are designed to match standard gray and black keg QDs.  These have become standard colors on ball lock, pin lock (usually the bottom portion of the QD) and even recently released Kegland QDs (center portion).

The gray and black are also made from food grade silicone and also available in bulk quantities.

Valuebrew has generally struggled to keep things in stock, however, I have no specification indication that availability will be an issue on these.

More about food safe materials:

For whatever reason, it’s difficult to find food safe keg o-rings.  Maybe some of the o-rings that are available are food safe, but very few are actually labeled as such.

The fact is we’re putting beer (food) in our kegs and we should be using food safe materials whenever we can.  More Info: Food Safe Replacement Keg O-Rings

Trick Your System Out w/Kegland Stainless Steel, Flow Control Ball Lock Quick Disconnects… Save via William’s Fourth of July Sale!

KegLand Stainless Flow Control Ball LockKegLand Stainless Flow Control Ball Lock Threaded via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

Now improved for 2021:

• 20% more adjustment knob range allows for finer flow control

• New softer spring for the poppet allows for both easier connection to a keg and easier knob adjustment

• New softer spring for the securing ring also eases installation and removal

• New markings on adjustment knob make it easy to know if you are increasing or decreasing flow

This all stainless fitting features a ball lock beer side connection, a ¼” male flare threaded outlet, and adjustable flow control. Perfect for making keg mounted faucets where you do not have 4′ of 3/16″ interior diameter tubing to reduce foaming. Adjust the flow when it leaves the keg!

If you want to make a ball lock keg faucet, you will need to purchase this connector, plus our items I26 Faucet Adapter, X85 Nukatap Faucet, D87 Concave Washer, and a tap handle of your choice. This disconnect is 3″ tall.

Note: Due to variances in machining, these vary a bit as far as how much flow they constrict at a given turn of the knob. So if you have more than one, one may require a different amount of knob turning to achieve the same flow constricting result. Also, these have a bit more restriction than normal wide open ball lock disconnects even when they are fully open, something to keep in mind.


 

  • V1 was announced back in 2019 and ended up disappearing from shelves at some point.
  • Kegland and William’s Brewing have announced a new and improved v2!
