Default For Sale - Wanted: Sanke center tube spear

Hey,
I'm looking for the center dip tube/spear from your sanke keg that you turned into a keggle. I keg all my beer in sanke's and I did a root beer. Afterward, the seals on the spear smelled like root beer and I was concerned they might ruin the beer. I used some chemicals to try and remove the smell (mostly bleach and/or baking soda) and it somehow managed to rust the ball of the spear.

Anyways, I know a bunch of you have these spears just lying around from your keggles and I want them! If possible, I'd like two so that I can have one for root beer and one to replace the one I ruined. They make different sizes and the one I need is the most common (the kind A-B uses) at 21-3/4" long. It's the kind used in most standard 1/2 and 1/6 kegs.

Of course, I'm willing to pay you something for your time/energy and shipping. Just let me know what you think is fair.

Thanks for looking!

I've got two of these... One is from an A-B keg, and the other is from an old Coors fatboy keg. I'm brewing this morning, so I'll check these out when I hit the garage in a few minutes and get back to you. My trash is your treasure!

Hey, that is awesome! Someone pm'ed me and said they might still have some (they have to check) but actually, more is better. I'm sure I'll ruin/wear them out eventually. I'll PM you for the details. Thanks!

Just the spear with the ball? I've got one from an AB keg lying around. I can bring it Saturday to the grain pickup if you want it.

Yeah, just the spear. I wasn't planning on coming to the grain pickup (I missed out), but I can. I'll shoot you a PM and perhaps we can arrange another time. Saturday mornings are not the best.

Hey, thanks for the offer. I'm thinking I might be good. If not, I'll update this post.

Reelale, bring the spear to the grain pick-up. I can get it into ajwillys hands. I live pretty damn close to Holly Springs.

I've got one too. I live right up 55 so I'm sure I could get it to you eventually. It's dirty as hell but one more can't hurt I suppose. I have no use for it regardless.
