    Hi all, I have tried Google and YouTube etc. to try to find out how to remove the spear from a Guinness keg. All I can find out is that it is a U type coupler fitting. There are lots of advice on removing the keg spear from every type of keg out there except the U type used by Guinness. Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks for explaining where you sourced the keg, i will leave the above message as a warning to any member who may be thinking of buying a keg at a car boot etc. (this has happened before)
