Next I predict running out of CO2 but anyway I had a shredded o-ring on my fermenter dip tube. Lots of bubbles when I was pushing sanitizer out. So fyi if you ever see that check the o-ring. I could probably but some full o-ring rebuild kits but I likely will mostly need just the dip tube o-rings. Is there a good place to buy a bunch of those for cheap?

McMaster-Carr? assuming you know the size, found this list in an old old (9 years) thread over at HBT, hopefully parts numbers are same?

  • Post O-rings Buna-N $2.15/100 - 9452K23 (liquid post)
  • Post O-rings Silicone $10.71/100 - 9396K24 (gas post)
  • Lid O-rings Buna-N $12.69/10 - 9452K218
  • Lid O-rings Silicone $7.88/5 - 9396K926

If you need a couple to get you by let me know. I have a bunch, I could drop some in an envelope.

I'm okay for now but thanks! I had a couple of spares so I still have one or I could always harvest dinner off of currently not in use kegs.

I ordered some stuff from McMaster last week, they're still delivering in one business day.  One of the reasons i love McMaster-Carr.  I've used them for all of my o-ring supply (and hundreds of thousands of dollars of other stuff as well).

I tacked on a handful of dip tube o-rings to my rite-brew order.  probably not very cost effective but these things are so cheap to begin with it doesn't matter too much.

When I was doing a lot of product development and mfg support at work several years back I was ordering stuff from them a few times a week.
