I went out to Pewaukee to pick up a solitary CO2 Tank... well, lets just say I came home with more than I expected. Let me know if you can identify things that I'm unsure of, and how I did as far as the sale goes. I apologize in advance for the poor photos.

--3 Tanks-- There are no markings on them to indicate size though
1 ~ 10#
1 ~ 5#
1 ~ 15#


--2 Regulators--
1 - Perlick (Older and does not seem to read properly)
1 - Perlick (Reads great)


3 Taps (all in pretty poor shape, but appear usable)
2 Shanks
Handful of valves and 50psi check valves

1 Hoff-Stevens Keg Coupler - Twin Probe
1 Sanke connector



These I was having trouble with. I have 2 of them. One appears to have a garden hose attachment.


I am assuming that these are old co2 valves?

Reason: Update - Found out what it was

Golden Gate Beer Keg Coupler


????


????


Beyond that:
Couple of washer kits
Hose clamps
~25' of Perlick air hose
And some other odds and ends.

Like I said, I went to go pick up a 5# tank. Ended up with this stuff for $50. Pretty pleased thus far. Is any of the extraneous stuff worth while or possibly valuable to me later later on in kegging, or is it a lot of old garbage?

Lot's of old junk. Half of it will be usable. You'll probably have to pay to get the CO2 tanks sent out for hydro testing.

Wow, JonW, way to be a wet blanket

Nice score there Sagan. That's a good variety of misc parts, from a DIY standpoint, even if some of it isn't in the best shape, you can make some useful stuff out of it.

I'm curious about the Golden Gate beer couplers, is that another propietery keg? Two post design like a corny?

Yeah, sorry about that, but sometimes it is what it is.

The goldengate taps were used years ago with kegs that had the CO2 inlet at the top and the beer outlet port at the side bottom. I've still got a set just like those...

I had no idea what it was. I did some searching and came across this:

http://www.kegworks.com/product.php?...ource=nextopia

"This hard to find beer keg coupler is sought after by homebrewers to fit Golden Gate style kegs. The set includes a faucet and vent. No company manufactures these parts anymore, so they are used, but should be in good working condition. Each vent and faucet set is sold as is. The coupler set shipped to you may vary slight from the one pictured."

I'll toss you $50 for the Golden Gate Beer Keg Coupler. If you could ship it to me that would be awesome......... PM me if you are interested.

Just exchange the CO2 tanks vs getting hydro test. Hydro test is $15 dollars for a #20 tank, to exchange it at home depot was $22.

I wasn't aware Home Depot did tank exchange. I was going to look into Praxair, but Home Depot would be a lot easier. Thank you.
