placed my order and realized i forgot to get some lubricant for kegging. where can you find this stuff? i assume its just food grade lubricant. any stores or names of products would be helpful. im not gonna pay shipping though...

I've used silicone grease from the hardware store. Find it in the plumbing area. Works great!!!

Edit: So that make two us us... Beat me to it by a split second...

No they should have plumbers grease . Thats a silicone spray that I highly doubt is food grade.

^ That is what you want. I think keg lube may traditionally be petroleum based. But I and many others have used the little cup of silicone grease, and it works great.

Petro gel has mineral oil in it and keg lube is silicone . Petroleum is not good for rubber it dries it out over time




KY works well too just the regular not the warming stuff
