    ABOUT ME

  • I started out building portable tank sprayers using what you commonly refer to as Corny Kegs. My company has build and sold custom stainless steel sprayers and chemical dispensing systems, sold in 50 states and 29 countries, so far. From this experience we have now opened our own retail home brew supply store specializing in kegging equipment,CO2 and Draft systems to build your own Kegerator's. We also have a full service shopping cart online and you can keep up on our new offerings by liking us on Facebook.rnAs of April 2013, we now offer a full line of ingredients.

  • So far I have brewed 6 extract kits and 1 all grain. My experience is in Kegging systems and building Kegerator's. Our company stumbled into Home Brewing by accident. We purchased 400 ball lock kegs from a local brew pub in the fall of 2010, intending to use for our portable chemical sprayers, but found that everyone of the kegs had the dip tubes cut about an inch short. For our usage we need full length dip tubes. Cost verses usage made buying new full length dip tubes a poor choice. We placed and ad on Craig's list as kegs for home brewers and in a matter of weeks sold almost all of them. This lead to conversing with lots of Home Brewers, whom we found extremely social and encouraged us to become equipment suppliers. We did and have been learning and enjoying this business ever since.

    No special tool that we know of, but one way would be to use the short gas side dip tube to
    push the poppets in. this allows the center pin to move while being able to push the three legs
