Default Keg Picnic Faucet

Hi All,

I just recently bought everything i need to start kegging, i have two kegs. I just realized that I only purchased one plastic picnic (party) dispenser. The problem is that there is no LHBS anywhere near me and to order a $2 item online i have to pay $8 in shipping. I do not really want to do that. Here is my question, does anyone know of a place that doesn't do this bulk shipping where you get screwed on really small orders to high shipping costs?

Or does anyone have a spare picnic faucet that they can donate?

Thanks in advance!!!

One dispenser is fine. Simply remove and hook to the other keg when you want to drink from it. I use this method all of the time. Buy one the next time you place an order.

Why not just drink them one at a time? I have 5 kegs but only tap one at a time.

you've got 2 kegs and they are both full. Tap one. Drink it all. Clean the line and then tap the second.

You didn't say you had 2 different flavors. We figured you were just stocking up on one type. You need 2 taps.

I would just hot swap the tap. A little spit from one beer to the other wont hurt.

Nothing wrong with wanting two beers on tap!

My next trip to the LHBS will be in about 2 weeks. If you still need one by then I buy it and mail it to you.

Same boat here...I will just swap back and forth until the wifey lets me buy all the junk I need to run two taps at once (gas hose, distributor, clamps, barbs, blah blah blah). These women just don't get it!
