Description
 
2" Tri-Clover or Sanitary fittings as they are often called, mate up the the tap neck of a Sanke or similar type kegs very well. There are a few reasons why a brewer would want to do this. The first simple use is to turn a keg into a fermenter. Simply stretch some silicone tubing over the male NPT portion of the triclover and you've got an airtight blowoff tube. The more interesting use is for keg based brewing vessel bottom drains. Cut the bottom of the keg out and then flip it over so that the valve neck is facing down. Read more for ideas and limitations.



Install Requirements:

All product options here assume that you've removed the valve assembly and dip tube out of the keg. You should be able to look inside the keg through the 2" hole. Note that the actual diameter of the flange on the keg opening should be approximately 2.5" and the ID should be about 2". This applies to MOST commercial kegs available but please double check.


Five Piece Bottom Drain kit. This comes with a 2" TC (2.5" actual flange diameter) to Male 1/2" NPT adapter, gasket, clamp, 1/2" NPT elbow and 8" long threaded nipple. Add a ball valve to your order and you're bottom draining.

Works perfectly September 8, 2017
Reviewer: J Wellman from Spangdahlem Germany  
Simple and brilliant way to convert a keg into a mash tun. I wish there was a way to keep it under the rim of the keg so I didn't have to rig up a stand but that is a minor inconvenience. The only questionable thing about the kit is the size of the sanitary clamp. It fits but the flange on a sanke keg is thicker than that of a typical sanitary connection. So it's a bit tricky to get it on correctly.  It can be done...

Just as described and fast shipping. I am combining this with a keg stacker so it will sit perfectly on my brew stand.
