Two used by new to me Corneilus Kegs

Only three years of home brewing under my belt and I finally have kegs. A Father’s Day gift from my kids landed me two Cornelius kegs. Of course they are used, of course they are dirty, but they hold pressure. Cleaning will happen this weekend when I have some free time to properly devote to the process.

I know that two kegs doesn’t mean I will be kegging beer any time soon. I still need the following items (is the list complete?):

  • C02 Tank
  • C02 Regulator
  • Beverage Line
  • Beverage quick disconnect
  • Gas Line
  • Gas quick disconnect
  • Faucet
  • Something to cool the keg

Looking at the list of necessary items, I don’t think my wife realizes all the extra equipment that is necessary. Wait until I start needing more gadgets. The conversations are going to get interesting. I least I am a step in the right direction. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: Spiral staircases in medieval castles are running clockwise. This is because all knights used to be right-handed. When the intruding army would climb the stairs they would not be able to use their right hand which was holding the sword because of the difficulties of climbing the stairs. Left-handed knights would have had no troubles, except left-handed people could never become knights because it was assumed that they were descendants of the devil.
