Default Rebuilt Corny. What do I Need?

I plan on using a corny as a secondary for some specific reasons. For now, it'll be just that, a secondary. In the future I might force carb some beers.

I see that rebuilt ones are cheap and plentiful. They mention seals, pop-off valves pressure valves, dip tube and a bunch of other stuff. What exactly do I need to buy to make a rebuilt corny into a beertight chamber that I can fit an airlock onto?

Thanks!

You'll need one large o-ring for the lid, 2 0-rings for the dip/air in tubes, 2 o-rings for the in and out ports and 2 poppets.

Be careful from who you buy "rebuilt" kegs from.
The definition of a "Rebuilt Keg" is:
1. New 5-piece gasket set
2. New Poppets
3. New Pressure Relief valve (PRV)

Many sellers say that their kegs are "rebuilt" - when they only replace the gaskets. This is NOT a rebuilt keg. They do this because poppets cost $3+/each and PRVs cost $8+/each, so they don't replace them.

Order the keg and the parts and use the new parts when you clean and sanitize to your own standards, before initial use.

Matt

+1 to MJC. I got a keg recently and it was leaking from the PRV. Fortunately I was able to glue back the small gasket that is on the bottom of it. It would be better if this was replaced.
