2.5 gallon corny post size?
« on: January 19, 2013, 03:43:43 PM »
Hey all, I have a beautiful little 2.5 gallon corny that I'd love to put beer in. Unfortunately, none of my liquid disconnects fit the OUT posts (have several other 5 gall cornies). I've heard some just take a little more effort to pop on that others, but even with keg lube on the o-ring and using all my weight, it will not pop on - afraid I'm going to break it.

Are there different sized posts that I need a different disconnect for, or do I just need to use a mallet to pound the thing on? ;)

Cheers!

Will a gas disconnect fit?
Will the beer disconnect fit on the other side?

you're on the right track, Tom!  Don't know why it never ocurred to me to try swapping the gas\liquid connectors.  Sure enough, the posts were switched by the previous owner!  So, a quick swap and everything's right again.

Let me serve as a cautionary tale for any lacking common sense  :-[

I bought a 2.5 gal corny that had 2 gas posts on them. Check to make sure your not trying to put a black liquid out on to a gas post.
