I'm having issues. I got the same sprayer, same adapter, I'm using a firestone liquid post. Did the post fit the adapter easily or did you have to use a bit of elbow grease? I get the first thread in or so and then it feels like I'm about to strip the threads, even without the nylon tape. Do I just take a wrench and force it on?

After double checking my kegs say Cornelius Co. but the posts look like the one pictured. I guess the older Cornelius keg posts look like this. Anyone with more info? Thanks.

They have different threads on the and a Cornie one won't work. Just because it's got the short base, it doesn't mean it's firestone. If you try to wrench it down farther, you'll just ruin the brass.

I agree, I think you are using a Cornelius post which has different threads. My Firestone post fit easily with no crossed threads. If you are using a Cornelius post, take it to the hardware store and see if you can find the proper adaptor.

I don't think there are any fittings out there that will work with the Cornie post. I tried this route at a pretty good local store and came up empty. Let me know if you can find something though.

It seems like for others building this from now on, sourcing a firestone post and an adapter from Home Despot would be easier than a magical fitting from a specialty plumbing store to use with a Cornie post.

Thanks. My LHBS was out of firestone posts. I'll have to order one.

Would this post work? I ask because I was wanting to put this together this week and the post that matches all the pictures is out of stock at LHBS. Thanks.

This one is a cornelius post and will not work. I'm not sure of the second one, because there is no description.

You need to find a Firestone liquid post.
