Anyone know where to find faucet caps or plugs for the Perlick 650SS flow control faucets? I can find a lot online but many say they won’t work in Perlick faucets. Appreciate any help!

Cheers!

Are you talking about those rubber caps that slip over the faucet to keep the fruit flies out? Are the 650’s wider than any of the other Perlicks?If so then just jam some of these in there

On my Perlicks (don’t remember what model but they’re stainless without the flow control valve on there) the cheapo $1 covers work just fine

I have the one t0rino linked to on my Perlick setup. It works great.

Yep, I found those but have heard very mixed reviews about working with Perlicks and even manufacturer disclaimer about not working with flow control models. I wasn’t aware that the dimensions were any different but I may have to investigate further.

I don’t really need a brush model, more of a boot/cap to slip over the end. I may just manufacturer something myself. Thanks for the comments!

How close are you to a homebrew shop? They’re only about a buck there, so maybe buy one and try it.

Just FYI, I found these and the seller confirmed they work with Perlick 630 and 650 faucets.

I saw some of the perlick flow control faucets up close tonight and you’re right, they are fatter. The bartender didn’t know what that use for covers, sorry.

I’ve got about 500 of them that I’d sell cheap from https://skinnyexpress.com/phen375-review-and-results and I use Phen375. Just got loads of them.
