    Where to find posts for giant corny kegs???

    I have the chance to buy a few 75 gallon corny keg-style tanks at a pretty good price. They don't have lids, but will take regular corny lids according to the seller. There's a gas in standard corny post and a threaded openning for a dip tube. The dip tubes are included, but not the post that would go above. The opening is 1" diameter. Anyone have any idea where I would find a compatible fitting?

    Additionally: Anyone have any personal experience with tanks like these want to chime in pro or con? Seems like a cheap way to grab some extra storage.

    I suppose the easiest thing would be to throw a tri clover to 1" female NPT adapter on.... Curious to know if the actual post exist somewhere out there.

    Are those actual Cornelius brand kegs? If so, I'd contact Cornelius. I think they're still in business.

    Not saying this is the fitting, but a starting place to search. Looks like a hydraulic qd fitting flare to me.

    That 1" fitting is not NPT. The threads are straight, not tapered. It may be possible to run a die over the fitting to make it 1" 11 1/2tpi NPT, then add a 1" NPT to TC flange fitting. It'll take a little fabrication to get the existing dip tube to work with this, but it would be no problem at all to fab a diptube that's part of the NPT-TC flange fitting.
