Re: Partystar deluxe tap won’t stop pouring

It's been a long time since I took one apart but I think the first thing when you have the tap off is to try to separate the metal body from the plastic clip. If you turn it upside down you see the two silver clips from the body. One one side (the side the handle clips into) is a little bit of plast...

Re: Flameout additions.

Re: New flavourings from MM

Not sure whats in the MM ones. I thought they would have to list the ingredients. Indeed, being (potentially fatal) allergens you need to be clear. The hazelnut one seems to contain hazelnuts, but the peanut one doesn't contain peanuts. I will stick with what I know to be safe (for me). Whatever yo...

Re: New flavourings from MM

I have used the hazelnut, pecan and maple flavours from https://www.stefchef.co.uk/collections/ ... -ascending to good effect. As they are essences rather than extracts they are ideal for me as I am allergic to most nuts, and these are nut free.

Re: Co2 - food grade

I don't think the taps are meant to be removed, I didn't know they even came out?

The hot condition leads are not meant to be used with extensions, was it plugged straight into the wall Oz?

Re: Question on IPA's yeast scavenging.

A quick update. I now use one of these with a short piece of silicone hose attached to the nozzle to take the sample of wort. It may look expensive but it is only 1.5 times the price of commercial liquid yeast. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Syringe-200-ml-Enema-Washes/dp/B014SPHHNK/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UT...

Re: Question on IPA's yeast scavenging.

I take about 450ml as per Ian's method and then make a 1L shaken starter 24 hours before pitching for 19-22L and pitch the entire starter. Works well for me.
