Easy Keg mistake!

Post by cerbera84 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 8:38 pm

Hi guys,

I'm a right idiot - had an Enville Ale Easy Keg at Christmas, which I planned to re-use in the future. I've dug it out of the garage and found that I have removed both the top bung and the bottom tap, and I cannot find either part. I see you can order replacement top bungs, but has anyone seen anywhere to order a replacement bottom tap for it? I know I could order plain kegs for £5-6 but its worth a shot - I'd like to reuse this one because I like its pattern! And it was £24!

Cheers,
Ben

I don't think the taps are meant to be removed, I didn't know they even came out?
