    I have to order gas shut off valve that will go on my Sankey coupler so that I can close it while begining the filling process.... I am guess off of memory 5/8", please let me know...

    Dont feel like driving back to brewery tonight...

    when i looked at it before, they were a strange UNF thread, and hard to come by.

    Your best bet is probably to get one of those beer nut shutoff valves, made by micromatic and others.

    GW kent also sell adaptors that go from beer nut to NPT if you want a different valve.

      Foxx has them cheaper. Your other option is an inline valve, foxx has them in ss or food grade plastic, ours are 3/8 id sized.

        Save yourself beer loss and frustration. Go over to GW Kent and get their manual beer filler fob head.

          I've only ever come across two sizes, 1/2" and 5/8"

            Sounds to me like you're trying to use a tavern head coupler for filling kegs. You should be using a keg filler/washer coupler instead. The easiest way to tell te difference is that the tavern couplers have a Pressure Relief valve on the side--usually has a little split ring on it. Filler/washer heads don't have a PRV, and have a bore about twice the size of a tavern coupler. This makes a difference in how long it takes to fill a keg. Filler/washer couplers will usually come with a valve on both inlet and outlet sides, so you shouldn't need to buy them separately.
