Did a stout, OG 1.049, been in primary for 14 days, oxygenated with pure oxygen. Had several
days (2 or 3) a bit to cold 60 or so when I was gone for the weekend. The rest of the time it
has been at 6...

I already have Perlick taps, and you are right they are worth the extra bucks. My question is

Took a few of my Perlick taps off to clean, and my shanks looked nasty, almost rusted or just

Can you find something like this at a hardware store, or will I have to get it at the gas
supply place. Reason I ask is I would like one tomorrow, but not sure if any of the gas places
