Default Craigslist score - how to adapt for cornies and kegerator

So I got (what I think is) a sweet deal on some equipment for my not-too-distant kegerator build.

I got a stainless 2-tap tower with Perlick taps, sanke keg couplers, and tubing.

The couplers look like this:


Total was $50 for the whole thing but not sure whether the couplers are of any use to me since i plan on using cornelius kegs. Is there anything that acts as an adaptor between this coupler and a cornie keg?

Also, you think this is a decent deal (felt like I could have negotiated a bit better)?

Where is a good place to find these? I feel like they will be tougher to come by than locally on craigslist.

Try one of the online distributors, or your LHBS. It's always good to have a Sanke keg connector though, makes it easy when you fell like buying a half barrel of your favorite brew.

This kit is complete and works great, it's what I bought.

Sanke Tap to Homebrew Conversion Kit, with disconnects

You don't need a conversion kit, if you are using ball lock cornelious kegs you just need these...

Liquid Connecttion and Gas Connection. Just connect them to your liquid hose, and gas hose respectively.

I say hang on to at least one of the Sanke couplers though, they are nice for times like this...


$50 is a great deal for a tower and a couple Perlicks and Sanke couplers!
