    I cross threaded the out post on a keg, on the keg not the nipple (ha ha, nipple. I think that is the correct term though) Is there anything i can do to fix this problem or have a created a stainless steel carboy?

    If you have a tap and die set, you might be able to rethread it. But stainless steel can be tricky. Oh.... the word you were looking for is “post”. Lol

    If you try rethreading yourself use anti-seize on the die or galling may occur and both the keg and the die will be useless.

    Good luck with your twisted nipple curry:p. Hope you can make heads or tails of it.

    ... just don’t tell your wife you are running to the “Nipple” Office to send out a letter. ;)
