I'll cut corners and such as much as anybody, but for $2.75 why would you bother to substitute. A tube lasts a long, long-long, LONG, long time.....

I got mine with the corny's and ball lock fittings from here, but ya must be ordering some stuff on a fairly regular basis from somebody that carries it...

I always thought 'double baggers' were equal to 'butter faces' (but-her face).

It is definitely fine to use!!!! It is designed for lubrication faucets., washers, etc in your faucets. It is FDA compliant. I use a different brand, but the advantage is that almost any hardware store should have it in stock. I can almost gaurantee it is exactly the same stuff as keg lube

Here's a link to their website.

That was my standard answer to this question, but apparently keg lube is petroleum-based, so what do I know?

Maybe the keg lube people are owned by the people who make replacement o-rings?
