Got lucky and scored a jockey box setup for a song. I bought it mainly for the full tank and regulator. However, now that I have the jockey box I might as well make use of it...it's in great condition.

I did some keyword searches here, but am obviously not using the right keywords. I just know others have done this before...

How do I convert the sanke setup to work with corny kegs? The diameter of the hoses appear larger than my corny setup and I'll need new fittings.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Takes some pictures of the connections. Generally you just need to put some 1/4" flared female swivel barbs on the hoses and that will allow you to hook it up to some corny keg post connectors.

If you you want to use sankey kegs then this will allow you to switch between them as well.

Something like the connector on the right. The connectors on the left are sankey connectors. We don't stock these but they are available from a lot of home brew and beverage suppliers.

Here are some shots. Thanks for the info, Bargain Fittings!

I added all of these on case y'all had some more ideas on how to further customize, etc. Check out that huge bag O' stuff....lots of parts.

Sorry for some image repeats. I got lost in upload land.

Cut the hose and clamp on the corny disconnects. Easy. Just get the right size flare barbs that match the hose to screw on a mfl corny disconnect.
