Where's the fun in that? The best bit is trying to remember what you done and whether you pitched the yeast :lol: :lol: :lol:

I use a pond pump with a spray head attached to it. I take the spear out completely.

Re: Sankey cleaning socket

Those cleaning sockets are for cleaning beer line for instance in pubs. Very basically you take the couplet off the keg and put in on the cleaning socket.

Re: [Newbie] Beer dispenser

Depends on what you are serving, the temp of your beer and the length of the line. Unfortunately, with commercial beer you don't know what pressure it has been carbonated at. It's going to be a suck it and see i'm afraid.

If you can keep the keg cold that will help a lot with foaming issues.

So I’ve poured another beer and it’s defiantly carbonated. Is it possible that my beer line is too long? I’m using 3/16 line.

Unlikely, think it's more to do with your receiving vessel.

Re: Flat Coopers Irish Stout

Also it could be your glass. If there's any remnants of grease or soap it will kill a head pretty quickly.

Re: Flat Coopers Irish Stout

What keg are you using? Is the beer actually flat or is it just the head is disappearing quickly?

Re: used keg cleaning

Do you have PBW? If not oxy cleaner will do but PBW is preferable.

I would half fill with hot a PBW/ oxy put the spear in then add a very small amount of PBW and water to the top of the spear where the coupler connects. Leave for 10 mins, invert & leave for another 10 mins then rinse thoroughly.

Re: Beer Taps

Personally I prefer the taps which close themselves but if you don't want that can you not just open the tap and take the spring out?

Also remember you will be charged VAT and/or import duty and the Royal Mail "collection charge" once it arrives (depending on the value).
Also depending on what the seller declares it as. I've had some inventive ones (without asking them to do it).
