Re: Brewing for a wedding

This may be of help and here is the how-to. I would try to keep your kegs cool if I were you. An idea we come up with at the festival the year before last was to use a paddling pool. We also put some lengths of 3/8" beerline connected to a chiller python to keep the water in the pool cool. It worke...

Re: Watter Butt Tap - Flow

Check the time side of the tap. I bought a couple and found they had some plastic on the inside of the tap which I had cut out. After that they flowed much better.

Re: Collapsing beer barrells

You will have to replace the lost volume of the beer somehow. you could crack the lid open a little but that will let air in and the beer will need to be drunk in about 4 days. Alternatively you can replace the lost volume with a co2 setup. That will be a lot more costly than some polypins though.

Re: Bubbles in keg line

What pressure did you carb at and what are you serving at? Are all your connections tight?

Re: Beer Engine Sparkler on a Cornie Keg

They are creamers, not sparklers. Same thing, no? I know some people refer to sparklers with smaller holes as "creamers", but they're under the "sparkler" family to me. This is a sparkler: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170505/f6f2d156c7f05b45a5808f0cdfcc77f1.jpg This is a creamer: https://uplo...

Re: Taps

I have a standard intertap with shank I no longer use if you are interested. It doesn't have the stout spout or flow control but it is certainly the best tap I ever had on my keezer.

Re: Ullage......

You need some head space to get the carbonation. No or little head space will result in low carbonation.

Re: Beer tower set up - confused!

Do you have a picture of the tower and the shanks? If the shanks are what it think they are then you can get a connector that screws on and accepts 3/8" line, you can then use a reducer.

The gas doesn't come into contact with the beer so plain old co2 will be fine.

Re: Best Keg?

Casks :lol:

Depends what type of keg you want really. Sankey kegs get my vote but they all have their advantages and disadvantages.

I've never used plastic kegs, from what I have read they seem more trouble than they are worth but others opinions / experiences may differ.
