Fitting Weld Option onto Leg A:

This assembly allows you to transfer beer and wine out of an oak barrel under CO2 pressure.

First, instead of using a pipe tee, we've started from scratch to have fully integrated parts for a more sanitary finish. The center block, it's top compression fitting and lower hose barb are machined from one solid piece. One side port is the ball lock standard threads (19/32") so that the included ball lock gas post can thread directly on. The other side port is male 1/4" NPT in case you want to expand to other accessories such as an adjustable PRV, pressure gauge, etc. It comes standard with a pipe cap that you can remove later. The top compression fitting also comes with a plastic T-knob that allows you to tighten and loosen the grip on the racking can for precise height adjustment with your bare hands. The standard racking cane is 29" of 3/8" OD 304SS tubing with a 90 degree top bend ending in an open tube (fittings optional).

It includes a 29" long x 3/8" OD 304SS racking cane (height adjustable). The bottom of the assembly has a 10" drilled stopper, which after stretching over a large hose barb ends up sized like #11.

When seating the rubber stopper in the bung hole of the barrel, it's best to twist while pushing down. In most cases you can get it secured enough to hold a couple PSI for the transfer but you may find the need to hold it in place. Another option is to temporarily thread a pair of screws into the barrel with large fender washers to hold the stopper down if you need to operate the system by yourself.

Pressure Transfer Rig Main Options:

  • The only options are various end treatments on the top end of the racking cane. We can add male NPT threads, either 1/4" or 1/2" for the use of ball valves or any other NPT female fittings and we can also add a ball lock liquid QD post which essentially turns the keg into a ball lock keg. Ordering one of these options obviously adds cost and functionality but please be aware that there is a 1-3 day additional lead time for this custom work. To avoid misunderstanding, please realize that these options do include the fitting being attached. It is attached via silver soldering. It only includes attachment to the top side of the can after the bend (not both ends of the cane).

Works perfectly and is a lot easy to maintain and clean than other DIY options since it has fewer pieces or nooks and crannies.
