So, what is the story with race-track lids? Some internet searching indicates that they are rare, and can be a pain to work with.
I managed to acquire a few recently, and I am trying to decide if they are worth continuing to use.
So, some questions:
1) Why do people consider them to be a pain? They seem simple enough to me.
2) I imagine they use the same post o-rings as standard lid kegs, but what about the lid? Wishful thinking has me thinking that the circumference of the race-track lids is the same as the round lids, and therefore the lid o-ring will be the same. Anyone know anything about this? (I don't have any round-lid kegs to personally try this out.)
