Great idea. I will be making mine soon. Im here in Roswell. Not a member of a club either but get together with a few buddies in the area to brew. Glad to see others in the area.

Very ingenuitive. Is there a downside to just letting the line sit in a bucket of cleaner though?

Not sure I understand the question?

Not a downside. Just might be more work on disassembly plus having to clean the faucet separately. Running cleaner through the system cleans all beer touching surfaces in one step.

I need to swing by BMW / HD this weekend as well and pick this stuff up. Thanks, geniz!

I'd be up for a Marietta brew day, as well.

I just bought the pieces for this kit while walking through HD. I figured I would cannibalize a liquid out post from a keg that is just lying around brining this gem of a DIY project under 10 bucks. Thank you for the pictures and the posts. So tired of using an empty keg to clean my lines every few kegs. awesome.

Did anyone have trouble fitting the adapter into the firestone post? I don't know if it is a ball lock vs. pin lock thing. I bought the same brass adapter from home depot and a 3 pin lock firestone post, and I am having trouble with them fitting. The 3/8" adapter seems too small for the pin lock firestone post. Any thoughts?
