Finally Commissioned today! Fits well. Quality every bit as good as I hoped. The ball valve is only 1/4 inch I think, so probably no good for massive hopping in primary without swapping it or adding a filter, but this will do me fine.

Mangrove Jacks M41 just pitched into about 21L or dubbel, with home made candi syrup going in after a day or so. I think I will just funnel it through the top bung, so limited interference required. Let's see if that blow off will be needed!

EDIT: Photo attached two posts down, if you can't see this one:

Sounds very positive! Often people are underwhelmed with the quality of stainless FVs, so a definite win there.

(Unfortunately I seem not to have permission to see your picture though, or else the link isn't working - I just get a 'no entry' kind of symbol).

That's odd about the photo link. It's on Google Photos. I will attach it here until its sorted. Can anyone else see the photo in my last post, same as this?

Ah... I've just discovered the way I share from Google Photos doesn't work if you are using MS Internet Explorer or Edge. Back to the drawing board with future posts then. There must be a few of my photos now, that people can't see if they're on an MS browser.

Thanks for attaching the photo, it looks like a very nice setup indeed; rather envious!

These are now available at a further 10% off (and have been since Black Friday). I'm very tempted but can't see how that tap can be cleaned properly.
