Does anyone else but me think that Tap handles are way overkill looking anf feeling for the faucets!? I never noticed until I built my keezer. I guess I never poured from one. But this giant lever you could use to pivot a moose, with the lightest pull ever. I like the feeling of the smaller black ones better, but of course the alrge ones look nicer.

I agree, and I think its all about marketing. I bet that back in the day there was game of one brewer's tap handle being the biggest so a competitor made theirs bigger...until we have the monsters of today.

Alohanole,

Love the Karl Strauss handle... used to go to the Sorrento Valley location for
"Dollar Beers on Sundays!" an the Downtown location for late night happy hour. One of the first and for a time the best in San Diego. Nice to see an old favorite being appreciated on the board.

Just getting ready to do my keezer build soon. I'll take pictures as it developes.

Todd

Battery_BreweryNJ, I love The Shipyard tap handle too (obviously). I can't say I have tried their export yet, but I look forward to it.

Tiko, thanks for the kind words. I've got a good Russian Imperial Stout in bottles if you want to do a swap. What do you have going? Also, check out the Utah Brewers Group on this site. Their is a post about doing a tasting soon. Try to make it if you can (and say so in the thread). Cheers.

Smart choice on the perlick faucet as well.
I have to say I was a little weirded out when called by name. I know it's in my profile, but just common on the forum. I was like... Who's outside my window!

Sorry, Dude, I just couldn't make a proper name out of "IrregularPulse", hope you don't mind.

haha not a problem, just caught me off guard. I really need a new Forum name, This is the one I used on my first ever forum nearly 10 years ago. Just stuck with it. Not relevant to anything anymore beside history. Oh well Enough

I thought I'd add my project in here since this thread was my main inspiration. I'll try to document everything.

A place to share Project Keezer

I can definitely see how you were inspired since you referred to your SWMBO on the front page
