My Dad was able to get two ball lock kegs from his sister but they have not been used in over 6 years and they still had syrup from the last soda that was in them. Do you think it would be worth trying to clean these out and replacing the O rings or will it be more trouble than its worth?
I was planning on putting some oxy clean in them and letting them soak for a few days (multiple times if needed) and then replacing all the o rings. Is there anything else that I need to do?
Remove the posts and poppet valves, you can clean them up by soaking them. Remove the tubes and check them also. You can clean the outside of the kegs with oxy and a green scrubbie. Remove any stickers with a careful use of a razor blade. Sounds like a great find.
Trying to decide on which regulator I should get. I kind of just want to use paintball tanks at first due to space issues in my mini fridge plus I already have 3 20 oz tanks and a place that refills them 5 minutes down the road.
I was looking at these two kits on kegconnection and don't really know the difference between a 1 and 2 gauge regulator.
This kit only works with paintball tanks which kind of sucks
