I just took off the green nozzle and wore down the plastic threads a little with a pliers. Then with a little thread tape (not sure how much it actually helped) cross threaded the **** out of the sprayer with my pin lock connection. It created a seal and pushed a whole bottle of cleaning solution through my lines w/o a leak.

Just purchased a made it tonight. It works really well and used the exact parts in the OP pictures. Only problem we have had so far is there is a small leak between the sprayer and the adapter. We have tried Teflon tape, tried screwing on a little tighter, nothing seems to stop it. Not too big of a deal and it's still really handy to have.

Amazingly simple solution, going to have to make one for sure!

Much easier than dragging a keg from one end of the house to the other just to clean a line...

Same thing I did. I just threaded a liquid post straight onto the sprayer with no adapter.

I found this same unit @ a company called 'Beverage Equipment.
Werd. I bought one and it works Great. $ 21.99
It was about the same to order the Firestone fitting and make it.

I finished my keezer this week and built this cleaner, works great!

I've scanned this thread without too much luck. IE Star San has a mix of something like 2 oz per 5 gallons, but this sprayer is only 56 oz (not even 1/10th of the bottle mix).

Anyone have suggestions for PBW, BLC, and/or Star San?

If my math is correct, for star san it looks like it'd be a little more than 1 tsp. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Not 100% sure this is what you were asking though.

My bottle of Star San reads 1oz to 5 gallons.
