About to set up my chest freezer conversion but the beer lines that came pre attached to the tower/faucets have these wierd big wing nuts at the end. These certainly dont connect to the corny kegs. Do I cut them off and then go with barb/clamp set up at the keg end?

Small hose clamps are your friend.

Just dont overtighten them.

The big wingnuts are for commercial installations, cut them off and attach cornie connectors. I use barbed connections and hose clamps.
