    I'll finally be able to compare the stout nozzle to a traditional stout faucet. Nitro tank is
    on its way! Video (hopefully) to come soon.

    "sacrificing a keg"Are you suggesting beer will store better if left in a keg for 20 years than
    in bottles?Anecdotally, yes. I've tried a couple beers from each camp, and the kegged beers
    held up much...

    I'm reading this like your beer is in a keg and is going to be pushed into bottles. If I'm
    correct on that, why not just leave it in the keg? Sure, you're sacrificing a keg to the cause,
    and you'll ne...

    I originally intended this beer to be a schwarzbier, but after disagreeing with some judging
    feedback that suggested that it might be better as a Munich Dunkel I decided to look for other
    options. The...

    I've found myself not using the growler filler faucet as much as I thought I would. I just slip
    the tubing that comes with it over the normal tap and it works the same.FYI, the Perlick 600
    series grow...

    Just following up, I bottled today at 1.005. The beer hasn't quite dropped clear yet, but it's
    well on its way, and I'm on a bit of a tight schedule. Still had a very nice "Dupont"
    character, but the ...

    Well, I had to do it. After taking another gravity reading yesterday the SG hadn't changed
    since I first posted the question. So I pitched a pack of M21 French Saison. The hydro sample
    did taste prett...

    I would love to try these, but I have teens and don't see a way to lock the taps. Per licks
    have a metal tab on the bottom of the tap that allows for a lock. Guess I'll have to wait a few
    more years u...

    I pitched 1 rehydrated pack into a bit over 2 gallons of 1.076 wort. Looks like it went through
    it in just under 48hrs. The krausen is sinking now.Thanks, Radboud! I'm really looking forward
    to trying...
