I've used silicone grease from the hardware store. Find it in the plumbing area. Works great!!!

Edit: So that make two us us... Beat me to it by a split second...

No they should have plumbers grease . Thats a silicone spray that I highly doubt is food grade.

^ That is what you want. I think keg lube may traditionally be petroleum based. But I and many others have used the little cup of silicone grease, and it works great.

Petro gel has mineral oil in it and keg lube is silicone . Petroleum is not good for rubber it dries it out over time




KY works well too just the regular not the warming stuff
