Default Will this tap work with cornie kegs?

There is a tap system listed on CL, and being the newb that I am, I am not sure if it will work with cornie kegs. I believe I would need adapters for it to work, if so does anyone know about how much they will cost? Here are the pictures the guy sent me. Also, he is asking $75 for this setup.

Thanks for any feedback.

you can use everything in tha tpicture but the tap itself... you will need to get the small disconnects for the corney kegs (like 5 bucks each)... but the kit looks really nice and depending on how much they are asking for it might still be worth it...

EDIT: Didn't see you said 75 bucks... YES PULL THE TRIGGER NOW... the Co2 alone would run you that much...

No, that's a Sanke tap.

If you want to be able to tap both Sanke and Corny kegs (either/or, at any given time), you need this as well: http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=152

the keg coupler will need to be replaced, (the piece in the focus of the pic below)


Everything else can be used, you will need to buy a Liquid and gas QD to match your corny keg (pinlick or ball lock)
Ball Lock Liquid Fitting 1/4" Barbed :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies
Ball Lock Gas Disconnect, 1/4" Barbed :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies

You just connect the gas line to the gas QD and the faucet to the liquid QD

you could use http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=152
however, if all you are going to do is corny kegs, it is cheaper and easier to just cut the lines to remove the threaded keg attachments, and install the new QDs

As previously said, the tank and regulator alone are worth $75. Take the lot, and trade/sell the sanke tap for corny-style fittings.

definatley worth the $75!!! (assuming the regulator works properly)

Just for grins, i priced that at Micromatic.com
RK-1 Basic Kit $47.00
430A-10E 10 lb. CO2 Cylinder $91.95
842 Primary Double Gauge - CO2 $44.15
7485E D System - Black Lever Handle In Stock $30.95
Subtotal $214.05 (if purchaced new)
it should be $10 more, but the regulator is out of sock, and the one i quoted here is $10 less.

Thanks for all the replies. So obviously I will still need the keg, but I do have a fridge. A couple more questions, will that regulator only support one keg? If so, would I be able to just use a manifold to expand to more kegs? Lastly, will I need to purchase more hose?

You'll want to find out what the last testing date on the tank is. If it's over 5 years old, you'll have to re-certify it (called "hydro" in the industry). It will cost about $15. Sometimes you can just find a place that does exchanges instead of fills but you'll pay a little bit more.

You'll also want to change out the beer serving line to 3/16" inside diameter. What you have in that pic is surely 1/4" and too large.

You can split the gas line with TEEs or a manifold block to as many kegs as you want.

I would replace the liquid hose, just top be sure you have new hose for your beer!
You can use a manifold for sure! the stainless cross is cheaper, but does not have any on/off valves

If you want to have more than one tap on your fridge door, you will also need another faucet and shank.

If you want to make sure you get the right parts, I would call kegconnection, and have them read this thread (they have an account here) and they can make sure you get everything you need!

Make sure you buy extra keg orings, and KegLube!!!

So with all the stuff that I would need to replace, plus the adapters, would it be better and about the same investment as just getting a kit from kegconnection.com or a similar site? Granted, it might be a little more with shipping, but it might be worth it to just get it all at once.
