    keg not carbing?

    Cleaning rubber keg handles

    Anyone have a good solution, they are the blue ones. They just look like they had been sitting in a wearhouse for years. Maybe submerge in oxyclean? You guys always have good tips and tricks so I figured I would ask before filling up the sink with oxy. Thanks in advance.

    I know you guys say they are great so I ordered a set and 4" shanks for the keggerator. My question is this what the hell connects the two?
