Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

It has taken some time to get to but it's just about done. Will put up a couple of pics after final touches.

Finally done. Welded a shank to an end cap and drop tube to shank. Welded a 1/2 inch elbow to a 2" tc elbow, had a couple adapters to hand pump. Perlic faucet and stag horn handle. Asked Perlick what material gaskets were made of and couldn't get an answer. Soaked them in 120 proof for 3 weeks. No ill effects. This is what I ended up with. Works as one would expect.

fancy work Pa_bon
so you do a few pumps to get the pressure up in the keg then you pull the keg handle and get your whiskey in your glass?

Simple as that. Nothing new. Just had to do away with the keg spear and original gaskets for something that could tolerate higher alcohol concentrations. This was my fix.
