I use a 7/8" on mine, if that's what you're asking. Not sure what "out side" is. I'm not the best with names and classifications of tools.

You may want to take the keg with you- I have 7 kegs, with 3 different sized posts. Most are 7/8", but I have a couple that are 11/16", and one is a star!

I thought they were all one size, but I have 7/8", star, and some that are probably an inch. You can take them off with an adjustable wrench or pliers too.

Get 2 combination wrenches. 11/16 and 7/8 with both open and closed ends. I also have a rubber mallet for the really stuck ones.

Vice grips and hammer for me, some times when I get a new keg it is a real pain to get off.
