I assume you've ruled out one of these.


I have been looking for one of these.  B3 doesn't seem to have them any longer....

Yeah, with the keg laying on its side the angle is all screwed up.

I'm thinking I have some welding to do ;)

Cutting and bending the out tube seems like it would be easier.  Shoot, maybe just changing the in and out tubes so that the air enters at the highest point and the beer comes out near the lowest would probably work.

Or get an RV faucet and make a beer engine. 

My though is to have a short shank welded to the IN post so I can put a faucet on the post. The OUT side would allow air in to serve the beer via gravity. Got you covered on the beer engine but like the idea of serving via gravity too

That was the third site I looked at to find even a photo.  But they still have the connectors and the faucets separately.

I like mine, even though I need a second. Since I can now borrow a jockey box when I need one, it's moot.

babalu87,
I get the wanting to weld something, but I don't think you have to to have it look nice.  When you get it done, post pictures!

Oh that goes on a QD.......................

Problem with going to a QD is it will want to turn.

I could get that and weld it to a post though , thanks for the link I didnt know such a thing existed.
