OBK Black Monday
« on: November 21, 2012, 09:28:58 AM »
Came across this on Facebook:

http://canadianhomebrewsupplies.wordpress.com/

Highlights of this for me are the $1 packs of S-05 (5 per customer), and I was thinking of getting another sanke coupler ($20 - 50% off). I may also pick up one of those stout faucets and likely some o-ring sets. May give one of those carbonation lids a try for $30 bucks.

Jake Ive been looking to hook a stout faucet up, where do you plan on getting your nitro tank and regulator?

And Jake do you actually use sankey kegs for dispensing?

Perlick.

You might save money going the economical route but you're gonna kick yourself in a year.

hmmmmmm I was thinking of trying with CO2, but from further reading I've discovered that you need the beergas/faucet combo to make it work properly. I think I'll avoid that for now.

Regarding the sankey, I had three 50L sankey kegs in my basement and an old sanke connection, so decided to give it a try. I'm doing about 100L of cream ale for the wedding and figured I was going to be short 4 or 5 corney kegs (was going to be 17 20L kegs total and I only own 13). So basically i've decided to use two of the larger sankey kegs to fix this problem, and I don't believe I'll need to borrow kegs now  ... so basically one of my 7 taps at the wedding will be a sankey connection.

One question for those that have used them: with a sankey connection, will it at all change the flow rate of the beer? If I'm using 10ft lines for my corney kegs, same length of 3/16 lines will work on sankey? .... I don't see there being a difference, but if anyone knows for sure I guess it would save me some problems.

I have a Sankey (coupler and kegs) I'm ready to hook up. Just need a 4-way manifold and gas and beer line. If I get it hooked up soon, I'll let you know. I'm assuming the same issues apply.

PS - I think I have a 4-way manifold when Richard gets back from the UK. Does anyone have 5/16 (gas) and 3/16 (beer) line they could sell me?

I just ordered a 100ft roll of the 3/16 beer line ... I'm going to be using about 70 feet of it, so I'll have about 30 feet left it that's usefull to you ... come to think of it, I may have another 10 feet of it in the basement too, so about 40 feet total.

No gas line. From what I understand, I think some of the guys have been getting it at kent?

Yeah.  You can get 1/4" gas line from kent for less than 50 cents/foot.
