The standard beer thread is 5/8" bspp, which also works out to 7/8" x 14. In my keezer history I have bought shanks and tailpieces claiming the latter, and recently converted to John Guest Push-to-Connect fittings where the part that screws right onto my shanks is 5/8" bspp...

Cheers!

I assume this is one case where stainless or plates really wont make a difference?
The nut should hold the tailpiece against the gasket and the shank. I don't see how the beer would actually touch it.

I know what 7/8 14 is.
What does bspp stand for?
