I am in the process of building my single tier 3 sanke keg AG system. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get brass food grade quick disconnects for my system?

Thanks

I believe MoreBeer.com sells them. But, if you're putting the money into a 3 tier sanke system, why not spend the extra 10 bucks and go stainless. It's much better in the longrun.

Won't the brass air-hose qds from McMaster do just fine? Or do they have some non-food grade components that would be touching the product?

I agree that you should go stainless. They will last for years. Besides, they are stainless.

Funny that this thread should appear now... Yesterday I put in an order for some 1/2" QDs, and I got the Industrial coupling shape instead of the high-flow coolant one. Does anyone know if these will work OK? I got the ones without a check valve. Looks like meybe I just spent a little more than I needed to?
