Triple tap SS beer tower

Post by chris2012 » Sat Oct 11, 2014 8:01 pm

Hey,

So I've seen this which looks more or less exactly what I want:

I'm wondering whether to grab that, ...or does anyone know somewhere to get one in the UK.

cheers

Chris

Doubt you will find a new one that cheap in the UK. The taps would set you back that much.

I have no experience with the people in your link, will you get some buyer protection?

I'm not really sure about buyer protection on aliexpress, I've bought electronics before on there though, but this will be bulkier so I'm a little worried about the duty.

They got them about a month after I bought mine from the US!

Everywhere seems to one made by the same company. It's worth replacing the PVC tubing as I found it gave the beer (and carbonated water) a fizzy taste.

You will probably have to pay VAT but not import duty. You can phone your local customs office and check. As regards Aliexpress your guarantee is that the seller does not get the money until you have received the goods and are happy with them. I have used them and the only grumble is the delivery time but considering the saving I think it's worth it.

I think you should consider the "Perlicks" that have the flow control on them, if you get an excitable beer they can make the difference between beer & froth.

och29 - That looks very interesting, but i'm not sure i'm a fan of the wooden handles.

orlando - Yeah I've been told how good perlicks are, do you know of any beer towers, that come with them. I'd be especially interested in
nitro type taps, but I'm not sure m(any) come with those?

The handles screw off. I think some of the other normal places sell them with different handles.

Do the Perlicks all have flow control? Anyone know where I can get a Perlicks faucet from at a reasonable price?
