Re: how to upgrade

Try the sparkler taps that some shops sell, I've got them on 3 barrels and make a big difference to the pour.

Re: Is cooling necessary

Look up the no chill method. Basically put your hot wort into a hdpe Jerry can and slosh around to sanitise and leave to cool

Re: FV's

Have a look at the Speidel 30l ones German quality so should be good, not cheat at £35 though.

Or a cheaper option would be the white bins from copper kettle.

Cherry Wheat Beer

Something I've wanted to brew for a while now and now I've done it. Wilkos 2 can Wheat beer kit, on special offer at the moment brewed short to 20l. 10 packs / 4.8kg sainsburys dark sweet cherries. The fermentation is a bit volatile to say the least, I've fitted a blow off tube going to a 5l Ashbeck...
