Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the tubing here?
Josh Hunter on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1/4" ID Silicone tubing. OD of tubing is slightly more than 5/16." Stainless steel fitting that attaches ball to tubing is 5/16."
Why did the price double? I was ready to buy a few of these when they came back in stock..
Randy Lastar on Jul 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Randy - Unfortunately we have little control over what suppliers charge us for products. When their price goes up, as does ours.

Add floating dip tube to corny kegs
This is a fantastic way to upgrade your corny keg with a floating dip tube. As others have stated, you'll need to add two other items to complete the solution:

1. Short dip tube (item #keg480)
2. Silicone tubing (1/4" ID, 3/8" OD)... approx. 24" (amazon)

Procedure: Replace your existing "long" dip tube with a short one (item #Keg480) or simply cut your existing one to length (~3" is ideal); determine the appropriate length of 1/4" ID tubing by sliding one end onto the new short dip tube and then extending to the bottom of the keg; slide the other end on top of the SS tube attached to the float. Don't leave a lot of extra length... it should be fully extended and just rest on the bottom of the keg well.
Run some sanitizer through the keg and tubing to complete the job.

Works great and you'll be drinking clear beer without the usual sediment on the first glass or two.

As for beer left in the keg... almost none! If you cut the tubing to the correct length, there will only be a few ounces of beer left in the bottom.

MB should consider making this a product and include the 1/4" ID silicone tubing along with the short dip tube. The tubing that comes with it is too small.

Floating Dip Tube
I don't have the Fermentasaurus, but I do make IPAs. The issue I have had is that they have quite a hop bite when I dry hop and keg hop. So I got this to be my floating dip tube. This draws the liquid from the top of the beer instead of the bottom. I also got a short little gas side dip tube to attach the other end of the tube to. I kegged a beer yesterday. Overnight 35 PSI and today I was drinking carbonated beer with little hop bite. Genius. I dry hopped 7 oz of Galaxy and Experimental Tangerine hops. Delicious

Conversion
I bought these to convert my kegs by removing the pickup tube I have some of my kegs converted with similar units but these were more economical

Needs bigger hose.
I needed a 8mm hose to hook it up to my keg. Hose that came with it was same size as the fitting for the float. I could not get it on.

Hello Don - These are designed to be used with FE100 Fermentasaurus Conical Fermenter.

Good value, but
I use these in my keg and they are much cheaper than the Clear Berr device. The only problem is that the hose is too tight to fool with connecting inside the keg. I swapped it out for a slightly larger hose.

i'm using it in a 5gal Corny keg
I wanted to pull beer out from the top of the keg rather than the usual dip tube at the bottom. I connected this to a new short IN tube, put that in the OUT, and it works great. I haven't tried cleaning it yet tho that might be difficult.

Came as described, but buyers should know that the tubing is a very small diameter, not large enough to fit over a corny liquid dip tube. This is not an out-of-the-box substitute for the clear draught system, for instance.

Won't work in a Sanke Keg
Would give it 5 stars but I can't use it since it won't fit into a sanke keg converted to a fermentor.

A great cheap upgrade.
I use this in regular 5 gal corny kegs. It's a great cheap alternative to the clear beer draft system, it works.
