hey guys!

so here is what im looking at. i have a 4 tap jockey box that uses sanke couplers that i use every week. what im looking to do is have a rinse/sani corny keg to clean the lines after use so it doesnt sit until the next use. since corny kegs are the most practical way (that i see, at least) to have a vessel for the rinse and sanitizer, i need to figure out how to create a connection for the sanke couplers so i dont have to swap out the connectors on each line, each week.

any thoughts?

Just buy a small Sanke keg...like one of these 10 liter Sanke D kegs...

Fill it with BLC/LLC or whatever, hook up your CO2 and cycle through each coupler in turn.
Repeat with rinse water and you're good to go...

Cheers!
Pulling spears sucks....

Interested to see what this thread comes up with. I'm in need of the same thing for the same reason. I've considered welding an old sanke coupler to a corny keg but what an expensive PITA.

They make kegs with sanke heads but with a corny opening on top. I believe they are Italian. The state makes us have our beer line professionally cleaned and they use one that holds maybe 3 gallons and has 3 taps built in. I sent them a message to see if I can get the manufacturer for you.

so he said he got it from micro matic. I don't see it on their website, this would be the closest http://www.micromatic.com/1.3-gallon/cleaning-bottle-d-system-1.3-gallon-5-liter-m5-801147

Ordered. Thank you. That's way cheaper then ones I've been looking at.
Can only imagine from the Youtube videos.
But what does that have to do with cleaning beer lines?

Cheers!
You were proposing using a sanke keg to dispense line cleaner and rinse water. How would you get the cleaner and rinse water in the keg without pulling the spear?

Through lines attached to a Sanke coupler.

Of course that would work but the idea is to simplify the process, not complicate it.
