(The part numbers are for Northern Brewer)

What would be the drawbacks of using a setup like this?
Why on God's earth would someone use a mass of redundant fittings? Can anyone say LEAK (or WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY)! Let's see...you need to connect hose to the threaded disconnects and wait...item K027 is a threaded tail piece! Everything else in the middle (including the disconnects are useless)!

Why, why, WHY?! Some people.

Just go back to the OP's original post and his question.

Now with that said, please show all of us how you would connect a Connelius disconnect to a Sanke tap.

Since I have threaded fittings on most everyting, I'd connect my lines directly to the tap with installed threaded tail pieces...simple. See similar suggestions by Dkersher and DubbelDach in this post.

We are all free to do what we want, but why would one connect a hose with threaded fittings to a dissconnect, to a post, to a second fitting and then to a threaded tail piece? Piling on all of the extra fittings accomplishes nothing and is not clean looking (honestly looks like poo). I'm not a pipe fitter but any one of them might cry at the sight of this.

Sorry, just my $0.02 and an honest opinion (and that's all it is).

The gas post doesn't appear to be marked, but I am sure there is one of each, liquid and gas.

Since I mostly use Sankey connections, is there an adapter to go the other way? Something I can screw onto the ball lock ends that will accept the Sankey nuts? Or am I nuts?

No. Just put 1/4" FFL barbs on the hose. Then you can put MFL tailpieces on the sanke coupler.
