Default Shanks for perlicks, is this what I need

I want to get some perlicks and convert my fridge to hold 2 kegs for now.

I found a good price on Perlicks for $23 here http://www.amazon.com/Perlick-Perl-F...3653471&sr=8-1

I want to get stainless shanks from micromatic and I am not sure which additonal parts I need, so far I have:

4" Shank - http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...id-4334AS.html

Nipple - http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...pid-526BS.html

washer - http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...s-pid-759.html

Now Micromatic says I will also need http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...s-pid-874.html I am wondering if I need this.

Is this nipple threaded? can it just be screwed to the end of the shank.

Please give me any tips or other options that I haven't thought of, its crazyb that the shanks will cost more than the perlicks

You'll need the nut to attach the nipple. You can also buy these and skip the loose parts:

or

Thanks for your speedy reply Yuri, the ones you posted arn't stainless (not sure if it matters too much)

Is this the nut I will need to attach the nipple? http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-...s-pid-874.html

Thanks,

Yes, that nut is used with the nipple and washer and goes on the end of the shank and that is where your beer out line with go.

This is what I am using

If you're stuck on stainless, you'll need all that hardware. Chromed brass doesn't bother me a bit.

I just want to use stain as I am a young guy (25) and want it to last for my lifetime, its ridiculously expensive, but I think me and my beer are worth it.

I found this http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...ducts_id=11656

Its 2 cents more expensive than adding separately but has everything I need.

Now to buy now or hope there is a sale soon?

Thanks for all your help guys

I don't think that set goes on sale...well at least I haven't seen it. The Perlicks were just on sale at AHS so those might not go on sale again for a little while

farmhousebrewingsupply.com has what you need for a bit cheaper. 4 1/8 SS shanks + the washer/nut/tailpiece would set you back 19 bucks and the perlick would set you back 26. If you can go shorter than 4 1/8 you can save a few bucks too.

Great shop, ordered from him a few times and have had nothing but good experience.

Thanks snowveil,

It works out to be about $10 cheaper each set after shipping. Do you know if the tailpiece is stainless?

sorry for the late reply. I'm not sure about the nut and tailpiece...I'd assume that they're chrome plated as well but am not sure. I'd shoot them an email.
