So, after the OP converts his corny to a Sanky, he can then convert his Sanky back to a corny?

I am having a hard time visualizing how that kit works?

The kit allows using swivel nuts on lines, like those used for threaded Corny QDs, on a Sankey coupler. They can also be used on shanks to allow swivel nuts to be used on both ends of a beer line, but they can cause foaming issues with some beers when used on shanks. The inside is not very smooth and causes cavitation and nucleation issues. They work better when used on the coupler beer out, but are still not as good as using true 'beer nut' barb adapters.

Resurrection time!
I have 2 Corny kegs converted to Sanke amongst my herd of Sanke stainless. I'd love a few more, and here's why - they are just a little narrower than the 1/6 barrel Sankes and I can fit an extra keg in my keezer if 2 of them are Cornies.

With my keg washer, I don't have any concerns about debris in my kegs. I pull the spear, flip it over and place on the keg washer with PBW. Rinse, sanitize, ready for the next batch. I can look inside my kegs through the spear orifice just fine, thank you very much. If they're is any debris, a few seconds with a wooden dowel and a piece of Scotch Brite in my electric drill solves it. But that only ever happens with new-to-me kegs that have been sitting around for a few years with skunge in the bottom.

I've got a friend that is pretty skilled at welding stainless I might try to engage in a little project...

Chris
