Cutting lines may work, but I was actually talking about cutting the plastic insert...If you bought 12 you can mess around with shortening them. If not, I can mess around with mine when they come in.

BTW...you get rid of the legacy?

That's the real point. You either go with the pressure reducer or long lines but not both.

I bought 3 but if I realized that shipping would cost more than the product I would have purchased 40

No it sits in the garage I washed it last night and drove it a few weeks ago

OK, so I may just be an idiot but I am trying to figure something out here. I have never ordered from McMaster before. When I order these things are the sold each, or per package. In other words if I order 12 of them will I get 12 or 12 dozen? I have a feeling is just 12, but wanted to double check. Thanks guys!

EDIT: Turns out I was being an idiot. 12 is 12. Thanks BM!

I just bought a 12-er of these characters. I've got a real foamy keg running in my kegerator right now that's about half full. Can I depressurize the keg, throw these in the tube and have go-time, or is this too much of a sanitation hazard?

I depressurized a half full keg and removed the post. In the mean time I had the whole epoxy mixer assembly soaking in some starsan. I made sure it was completely full with no bubbles. Then I held the mixer upside down over the dip tube and pushed the insert out into the tip tube using an ice pick that had been rinsed in starsan. This way I didn't have to actually handle the insert(s). I then reassembled the post and was back in business. No infection.

I like your style. I'll be doing this tonight. Any tips on getting the mixes out of those goofy tubes? How many mixers did you use? One or two?

I used two inserts for some Belgian beers @ 18 psi and 8 ft beer lines. To get them out, just find something that fits in the small end and just push the insert out. It should come out pretty easily.

Just bought some of these that I am going to try with rootbeer, which is always a foamy mess on a 5 ft cobra.

I just threw them in to a Corny with maybe a gallon left. All of the shaking made my Bock look like trub (poured almost immediately, couldn't wait for it to settle!) but cleared up every foaming issue! It had a perfect amount of head and a nice slow pour. This is an amazing find!
