What Perlick should I get?
 
Hi Guys, I am building a four tap keezer and I will be doing a tower bought or made I am not sure yet. What Perlick style is best to use? I see the 525, 575, and the Perl flow control. What are you thoughts on these? Thanks :mug:

IMHO 525 stainless. Keeping it simple.

I have two 575s on my indoor kegorator, but will be switching to the 525s when I build my garage keezer. The 575s are cool, but more problematic and the creamer function on them is not worth the hassle in my opinion. Twice now I've had them get gummed up and stuck slightly open after a guest pushed the handle all the way back. I both cases I lost a gallon or more of beer (not to mention the cleanup)!

Thanks guys it looks like the 525s are the way to go. Has anyone tried the flow control valve that Perlick makes?

This is the flow valve I have seen.

I like the idea of the flow control valves, just don't like that they're plated brass ...

more parts to keep clean. And the chrome plated brass bit.

+1 on the 575s. And, they're not needed to create foam...

Don't bother with the creamer faucet - visitors get confused and push back on the handle and can't stop the flow. Also, I have more problems with too much foam, rather than not enough. Simply unnecessary. I'd do the 525s if I had to do it over again.

Thanks I am definitely leaning towards 525ss.
