Tips for Proper Fit!

  • I use universal style poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs. These fit the vast majority of kegs without modification. The only issue I’ve had has been some kegs end up a bit too tight.  In this case the universal poppets are longer than OEM poppets.  This causes them to seal too tightly. There’s an easy fix.
  • Use a pair of wire cutters or Nipper Pliers  to trim the universal poppet.  Search Amazon for “nipper pliers”.  Look for a tool that’s designed to cut nail heads.
  • Important: I suggest trimming a half coil or less 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 make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.
  • Immediately replace o-rings. Over time, I’ve learned to discard the o-rings that come with universal poppets.  Why?  Because I don’t know what they’re made of and I want to have a reliable source for replacements in the future. Replacement o-rings can vary slightly in size. If you make this change before trimming coils to size the poppet will fit correctly when the o-ring is replaced (with an identical o-ring) in the future. Grab food grade replacements in bulk, replace immediately, trim and then you’ll have spares that won’t change fit when you need them.
  • Food grade o-rings are confusingly tough to find and in my opinion, these are especially important for universal poppets as this is one point that is in constant contact with your beer.

Hands On Review: Learn to Brew Universal Poppets + Install Tip

cln_img_0443

I use universal poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.  So far, they have worked in every one of my kegs.  I, generally, like their cost and also like the fact that I don’t have to figure out and pay for model specific OEM part.
