Do the standard lid o-rings work for these type of kegs?
I just got a Challenger VI for $25, and it needs extensive renovation. It looks like whatever was left in it dried out 15 years ago and left a ring I hope will come off with PBW. What would be the next option to get grime off? CLR? I have some but have never used it on my brewing equipment.
The keg also has the plastic gas diptube and it was missing the liquid post. The lid looks like it still has a working pressure relief valve, but it does look like it might be deeper than the newer lids. I have not compared it against my current keg parts, but I know I will need to get a few new parts to get it in working order. Going to work on cleaning it first.
This looks like where I will get my post from, unless my local store has some.
