4" Cap Spanner For King Kegs

A very useful plastic cap spanner for removing lids from King Kegs - they can get surprisingly tight so this little tool can really help.

A very handy device for tightening up and slackening off your 4" vent cap from your king keg. Gone are the days of squeezing the keg between your legs and using all your might to try and unscrew a cap that's been well on for 6 months.

These spanners really make it much easier to remove the lids, some prefer to get 2 of these spanners and tape them together to make one really strong spanner for extra purchase!

Frequently asked questions

At what stage of fermentation should these CO2 Bulbs be used,how often and what types of home brew to use them with. I brew beer, lager and cider?
The CO2 bulbs are a quick substitute to the natural CO2 that builds up during secondary fermentation which takes place in the pressure barrel. They are usually used when the pressure barrel is around half empty as it takes much longer for the natural CO2 to build up, so its easy to put a bulb in and have instant pressure. It can really vary but two or maybe three will sometimes be needed for one brew.
You can use them with any home brew that needs pressurising in your barrel.

2Good barrel, bad seal

As with the other buyers I have had trouble with the gas seal in the cap. The seller supplied me with a pack of new seals which I have tried - with limited success. Replacing the little seal on the stem inside the barrel stopped the blowback through the steel spindle but I still have gas escaping around the barrel screw thread (I will try Vaseline) and also around the central stainless steel thread. The large nut tightens against a rubber washer but gas still escapes. Pressure is gone within 60 secs. I'd appreciate any guidance please! M
HBO Edit - Occasionally there can be issues with barrels, please just email us for advise, we have some suggestions that will usually solve any problem, and help is also here on this feature: https://homebrewonline.vanillacommunity.com/discussion/209/barrel-problems-co2-injector-cap-leaking-tap#latest

5King keg

Excellent, but took a few tries to get a good seal, probably experience in using will alleviate that. Otherwise a lot easier than cleaning and sterilizing 40 bottles.
