Insulating brew pots

As my previous post I was considering buying two 50l thermos pots . However, I realise I have two unneeded 50l brew pots with taps and bazookas . Just need to insulate them. I’m sure blankets and old coats would be enough .. I’m sure I’ve tried it years ago. Any ideas ? Sent from my iPhone using Tap...

Anyone used thermos pots from brew builder ? Sound very reasonable price , especially if you reuse your own taps /bazooka ???

Re: serving bright beer from a cornie

Final verdict on top floats in cornies IMO . Excessive foaming does spoil the marginal

Re: Fullers 1845

As an aside, today 1845 won CAMRA bottle of the year, which may help distribution. Really - gobsmacked!! Just to cover off a couple of other comments, I always go for 3 bottles of dregs primarily because I've convinced the wife it's the minimum required (when she goes shopping) so I get 3 bottles t...

Re: Beer engines; keeping it fresh

I have also learned to my cost that bleach/chlorine can permanently taint the pumps . It shouldn't be a problem with thin bleach but probably would be with thick bleach, which is intended to cling to surfaces. Let's not forget that pub cleaning fluid is chlorine based. Well whatever works works . I...

Re: Beer engines; keeping it fresh

Ah ! 1/4 pint cylinder and short beer lines. I change inline tap to next beer before last 1:4 pint pull of previous pint , or to ensure no mixing I change to spare in line tap that’s not connected to anything to empty the cylinder before switching to new beer.

Re: Beer engines; keeping it fresh

I’ve been using hand pull pumps for 25 years . Mainly England:worthside with cooling jackets . I’ve never had a problem keeping beer fresh and only clean on barrel change . I have learned never to use hot water as this can damage seals and non/ return mechanism. I have also learned to my cost that b...

Re: Fullers 1845

Ok so I emailed Fuller's, and it should be available, as has been said, in most Waitrose and Sainsbury's. They didn't say, but I guess Tesco must have just stopped selling it for whatever reason. I'm of to Sainsbury's to get some!! Good luck . I’ve been to a few Sainsbury’s and Waitrose with no luc...
