King Keg caps should fit.

Lillywhite wrote:The amount of CO2 you need to add, either by CO2 bulbs or via a S30 gas cylinder depends on many factors, particularly how quick you want to drink and how many pints you draw off in one session.
I've had kegs where I haven't needed any additional gas to dispense.

More gas? I think you mean less gas.
