Hi,

Im trying to find out what coupler I need for this keg. It’s from our wedding about 5 years ago. We had it at MillStone Cellars in MD that’s no longer open. I’d like to tap it and see if it’s still good.

Agreed, it looks like a Sanke D type keg valve...

Cheers!

It sat warm for 5 years? The odds of it being any good is about 0%.
But I'm sure it will go well with the 5 year old wedding cake. :bigmug:

It's hard to tell from the photo of the dirty keg, but it may be a Sanke type S. The way to tell the difference from the Sanke type D is the type D has a ball on the top to seal the keg and the type S has a flat disk which requires a coupler with a longer reach to depress.

After a good cleaning, before you put the tap on it, first sanitize that tap area, thoroughly! You don't want to spoil all the goodness in that keg...
