Buford, I've done this same conversion recently and since I live in the area you should swing by and check it out to see if it's something you want to do. PM me next time you run up to Weekend Brewer, I live just around the corner.

Same offer stands for Todd_K as well.

Currently have EdWort's Apfelwein and a SNPA clone on tap.

One thing about kegging, you won't want to wait. WARNING: You WILL drink green beer if not patient.

EDIT: Apparently all the pics went away when I switched from Comcast to Verizon FIOS, so I uploaded them to HBT and fixed all the links, as per someone's email request.

If you're talking comercial kegs, the closest thing in size to a corny keg is a 1/6 barrel keg but they're not exactly the same size. They also use a different connector (Sankey tap).

The 4912 will fit a 1/6th and a corny, but not 2 1/6th's. It's also easier to get a low profile sankey coupler. There is not a lot of extra headspace in the 4912

Yeah, just about any brewpub will fill up a corny keg for you. It would prolly cost between 40-60 bones. Just sanitize a corny and take it in. It's prolly best to call ahead, too.

I did this conversion yesterday and just wanted to let everyone know that it went great. However, my freon line was almost 8" from the back. I just shifted my hole 3/4" forward and it worked great. Pictures to follow...

I'm not surprised you could do this well. What with all the glory holes you've built and squatted in front of over all these years.
