Sanke Keg “Cross” Fermenter Kit

Wash, Sanitize, Ferment, Carbonate and Serve in ANY Sanke Keg!

304 Stainless Steel

 

NEW!!! Replace the standard racking cane with a custom connection racking cane (scroll to the bottom for details).

This is essentially four of our product offerings engineered into a single device:

  • Racking Cane – Stainless Steel – Standard (SKU# 2983)
  • 2” Tri Clover Pass-Through Cross connector (SKU# 2962)
  • 3 Inch Spray Head (SKU# 2803)
  • Full Port Ball Valve (SKU# 0138)

With this tool, a brewing pump, a few feet of hose, and a few hardware fittings you are set to:

  • Use the built-in Spray Head to clean, rinse, and sanitize Sanke kegs (using products like Powdered Brewery Wash and Star San)
  • Ferment your wort in a Sanke keg
  • Use the Adjustable Racking Cane to transfer liquid in or out
  • Close the Full Port Ball Valve to pressurize the liquid and/or gas inside the fermenter. Useful for auto-expelling cleaning solutions, rinse water, etc.
  • Attach a blow-off hose to the Full Port Ball Valve using your favorite 1/2" NPT Male connector, then open the valve to expel CO2 from fermenting wort
  • Use the Adjustable Racking Cane to extract the yeast and trub from the bottom of the keg, leaving clean beer behind

-       Or  -

  • Use the racking cane to rack the beer off the yeast and into bottles or kegs
  • Use the built-in CO2 Ball Lock connector to force carbonate contents under high regulator pressure, then serve contents after reducing regulator pressure

Adapts to your current connecting hardware of choice:

  • Hook up any 1/2" NPT male connecting item (sold separately) - such as Cam Lock, Quick Disconnect, or hose barb fitting - to the Full Port Ball Valve to transfer gas or liquid in or out of the keg.

Works with ALL Half Barrel (15.5 gallon) American, 50 Liter (13.2 gallon) European, and 1/6 Barrel (5 gallon) Sanke kegs.

 3 Inch Spray Head:

  • A total of 14 holes, each 1/8” in diameter, arranged as follows:
