A while back, there was a guy here selling tap handle adapters. He was a CNC machinist and making them at work. I quickly snapped up a dozen at something ridiculously low like $2 per. He said he could make them with like 8 seconds of labor time on his part.



I'm guessing he got shut down. The thread is missing from 'My Replies' and comes up with a permissions error when I tracked down the old URL. See this thread for the guy's old contact details:

And here's how other people have done it:

The key is getting SWMBO buy-in. Once she knew she was getting at least a punch/tea faucet (so she didn't have to make it 1 gal at a time and clog up the fridge) and a wine faucet (so she didn't have to chill, uncork, pour, etc), it became much easier to justify.

Beautiful job. Going to show the SWMBO.
CO2, 5 psi. It's a low enough pressure that it does eventually carb some minimal amount, but it's not even noticeable in the mouthfeel.

Hi thadius856,

First off, thanks for your great work on the keezer front! I've referenced your posts numerous times during my current build.

Have you had any issues with using John Guest fittings on the gas side? The only other posts I've found about it are from people who are thinking about doing it, but never do (or never post again). People who reply to these posts all seem to be wary of using JG fittings for gas, as well.

Thanks for the help!

Would be the same pressure as the beer side, doubt you would have issues. I would use 1/4 for gas
