Keep in mind that the CO2 tank and the kegs have safety release valve on them, too, which is meant to *safely* release pressure if it gets too high or something goes wrong.

I don't know if they'll fit, but I run both no problem. Just be sure to get MFL disconnects on you gas and liquid connections and it's easy!

3 brews identical to above and I get 78% (as high as I want it!). Hit your temps on well-crushed grain and your efficiency should be good!
