Default Better Bottle O-rings

I recently purchased 2 used Better Bottles with the spigots and all of the rubber o-rings needed to be replaced.

I did a search on here and came up empty. So, to save others the frustration of figuring out what is needed, here is what I used.

#206 - For the plug on the cap
#47 - The 2 little o-rings on the plunger
#7 - For inside the nut that butts up against the bottle wall

FYI, a #3 stopper fits the ported hole to make cleaning the bottle easier.

I also lubed up all of the o-rings with some food grade grease.

Their web site has replacement o-rings. Look under racking adapters.

These are not kept in stock at my local homebrew store and I was brewing that weekend. The Teflon encapsulated o-rings where fine, it was the others that needed replacing.

The #47 & #7 o-rings are readily available at Lowes or HomeDepot.

The #206 was lower priority, so I ordered it online.

Anyone know where I can get 1 #206 o-ring? I found packs of 100, but I only need one.
