Grifo Capper - rusty spring?

I bought the Super Grifo capper 7 weeks ago and have used it to bottle 5 batches of beer. Two weeks ago I started getting rusty marks on the bottle caps and then the magnet fell out.

Which Speedfit fitting?

Nice easy one, I am trying to hook up a microbore (which I'm sure is 8mm) cooling saddle to a beer cooler. I THINK I need a 3/8" to 8mm John Guest Speedfit connector - but can I find such a thing on eBay / Toolstation.....?! What do I need?

Good thinking Kev - has anyone experience of these Brouwland pots, and how do they compare to the Chinese imported items that Brew Builder etc build?

200 Litre Stock Pot shortage?

I have a 100 litre electric brewery that I need to expand to supply more cask.

Re: Milk Stout Finishing

JUST found the setting in BeerSmith - Double click on the Lactose and tick 'Not fermentable' and you get close to actual FG.... why they didn't mark this in the default ingredients list
