How To Purge A CUB Keg

Postby TJD777 » Sunday Feb 12, 2012 6:00 pm

Hi
Just joined the forum and new to kegging. I have a mate who owns the local and has kindly lent me a couple of cub kegs. Does anyone know how to burp them as they have no release valve? I read somewhere else some bloke took the connection off and pushed down with a screwdrive but all that would do is cover you your new fresh batch. Please help.

Maybe its because no one on this forum uses CUB kegs did you think of that?

And why on earth would you be asking us, instead of the "mate" that gave you the CUB kegs and clearly has the correct couplings to use with them and knowledge of the equipment?

Wot will I be the only 1 in aus to use a keg you can actually buy off the internet?
I'm pretty sure the pubs don't brew their own beer?
I'm almost certain it's already done they just connect and pour.

Most in the home brew seen use 19lt cornelius style kegs and not 50l kegs, 50l kegs are only in existence as a remnant of Australias antiquated taxation and alcohol excise rules.

You're not asking everyone in Aus, you're asking everyone on this forum.

And as a pressure release valve is a safety mechanism, it certainly isn't exclusively used by homebrewers.

CUB Kegs require a coupler. Example here. Your mate should be able to assist.

As mentioned above, the majority of homebrewers use the Cornelius type keg which have different fittings. However a quick search revealed this gem.
