Re: Splitting beer line

Sorry I don’t quite understand. A 4 coil cooler feed 4 taps. The chilled water recirc can feed 4 fonts. If you have them in series (1 loop) the first will be the coldest, the last the warmest.

Re: CO2 in Somerset & Devon

I get my beer gas from a guy who lives in Weston-super-mare . You have to order it in advance and pick it up from Bleadon . I pay about 60 quid for the 5 foot high pub style bottles . I live in Mark Somerset BTW .

Re: Brewing Red Wine

TBH they are fine after a month but when I’ve opened older ones they are better . I don’t think I’ve had one more than 12 months old. Not sure they need keeping cold either .. I keep em in garage ..

Re: Brewing Red Wine

Kenridge do a cracking Cabernet Sauvignon . Did blind taste test against papa Neuf and it won. It is the wine of choice among our friends . ( the biggest compliment I received was ‘ I’d happily pay eight quid for a bottle of that ![emoji23]’)

Re: Pet bottle growler

The trick is the white gas in connect is now being used as a beer out connect and goes straight to tap . The grey beer line is going to tap .

Pet bottle growler

Just ‘discovered’ a way of making a mini growler out of pet bottles and use tap . Anyone else do this? What’s the largest pet ‘pop’ bottle ? Is it 3 litres?
