Dazer, just as a matter of interest are you putting that pilsner wort onto the primary or lagered yeast cake? Ta Nige its the primary yeast cake anything that is lagerd goes down t...

Re: Kegs arrived, 30l

Just so i have got this correct you have to unscrew the spear to get it out and there is no clip to remove or put back on like a normal sanke keg
if this is so i would be very interested in the 20 liter versions of these .
