A while back, there was a guy here selling tap handle adapters. He was a CNC machinist and making them at work. I quickly snapped up a dozen at something ridiculously low like $2 per. He said he could make them with like 8 seconds of labor time on his part.



I'm guessing he got shut down. The thread is missing from 'My Replies' and comes up with a permissions error when I tracked down the old URL. See this thread for the guy's old contact details:

And here's how other people have done it:

The key is getting SWMBO buy-in. Once she knew she was getting at least a punch/tea faucet (so she didn't have to make it 1 gal at a time and clog up the fridge) and a wine faucet (so she didn't have to chill, uncork, pour, etc), it became much easier to justify.

Beautiful job. Going to show the SWMBO.
CO2, 5 psi. It's a low enough pressure that it does eventually carb some minimal amount, but it's not even noticeable in the mouthfeel.
