Weldless connection dip tube for converting straight-wall, 1/2 barrel
(15.5 gallon) American Sanke keg to Hot Liquor Tank (HLT), Mash / Lauter Tun
(MLT), or boil kettle.
This dip tube is designed to
thread into a 1.5" coupler that mounts INSIDE the keg wall. The coupler is part
of our weldless attachment items (spigots, etc.) This is why
this weldless connection dip tube is 1.5" shorter than a welded connection dip
All components 304 stainless steel
1/2" NPT Male connection (ready for threading into a
Compression fitting for easy insertion and removal
1/2" outer diameter draw tube
Requires 7/8" (2.22 centimeters) hole drilled in keg.
works with 50 liter European kegs that
are 15 inches (38 centimeters) in diameter. Does NOT work with old-style Coors
Belly Kegs (you need THIS DIP TUBE for those kegs).

Works Great... Parts Not Included03/29/2018 ByDustin A. I followed the instructions in the video and ordered the bulkead assembly. Put it together and it had too much wiggle for my liking.
From my experience, to get a water tight and WIGGLE FREE seal you are going to need; this dip tube, bulkhead assembly, an additional washer, and one of the clear flat O-rings, thread tape and of course whatever ball valve you are using. It is perfectly tight and no leaks.
My problem with this is, because the site didn't give these details I've had to pay shipping on 3 separate orders while I "figured it out", also it wasted my time. I don't know why all of the parts needed for this aren't sold together. The only reason I can come up with is so you don't realize how much your paying when you order it piece by piece?
TLDR; Thrilled to have a product that works, not happy with the wasted time and money it took to get it.
