How would that work? I think the gas diptube basically holds in the O-ring, so it only needs to be a couple mm long. Pin-lock gas diptubes are very short. So maybe he could cut his diptube to just fit the bigger top of the hole.
CHI company in Calif. is ordering more. Don't know how long that will take.
In the ones I've got, the o ring sits on top of threaded receptacle that the dip tube goes into. Although I haven't tried it, it looks like the o ring would just sit on top of that and the post would hold it in place without the diptube being necessary.
I'd be less apt to get beer in my lines that way
I've chopped down a few but still have a few more to do.
Of course now that I dont take kegs apart to clean them anymore that task may have to wait.
PS Gotta get pics of my cleaning system posted.
Here is the gist of it though:
I have a submersible pump for re-cirulating ice water through the IC chiller.
Looking at it one day AND a pile of kegs I said "self, there's got to be a better way"
Tube here , QD there, T here and voila!
Now I take the lid off the corney, stick it in a big pot containing the pump and some Oxyclean solution.
Start up the pump and run Oxyclean into the QD's on the IN/OUT of the keg
Once the keg is full I disconnect the gas post and let it run in the bottom of the keg via the BEER POST and out the top of the keg.
EDIT added picture (I'll put a post in pimp my equipment or something)
