That's pretty cool. I'm fuzzy on the difference between a pin and a firkin though.

volume... a firkin essentially holds the volume of two pins.

P.S. I own a pin!



Got mine from UK Brewing Supplies

That's really cool.

What are some of the pluses and minuses you've noticed using a pin instead of your keg? Is the flavor difference significant?

Contact Paul at UK Brewing. He'll most likely get you a better deal.

I am also lucky enough to own a pin. I got my from geemacher for 160 shipped. Got it to have cask parties ever couple weeks throughout the summer. Super happy with them and if I ever get a firkin I would go back to them for the purchase.

That's where I got mine... Paul is good people!

P.S. I put my pin to good use this weekend (yes, that is a bungee cord)
