Posted in thread: Which facuet: rototap or Perlick 650SS? on 02-04-2015 at 08:17 PM
I like those Rototaps!Not familiar with them, but the Belgians seem to have good luck with
beer.........Yeah, they look cool! The Perlick seems pretty good as well - anyone have
experience of using bo...

I picked up some rototaps, which have flow control, for my kegerator project a while back.
These are the European-style taps with a thin spout: Very common in Belgium.However, the
shanks attached we...
Posted in thread: Yeast slurry: pitching/is this infected? on 01-14-2015 at 02:03 PM
It probably got enough aeration in it to start fermenting again when you transfered it over to
the kilner jar.Should I pitch from the slurry in the PET bottle rather than the Kilner jar,
just in case?...

Doesn't look infected but I'm no expert... when I was pulling from the slurry I would spoon,
sanitized one, the middle layer (below the thin, above the thick) into the primary based on the

UPDATE: the yeast has settled out again in the kilner jar, but the ring of bubbles around the
edge remains. Infection?

Can you: Make the floor level, by fitting a piece of plywood, or a large ceramic tile or
something?Unfortunately not, as then there wouldn't be enough room at the top of the fridge to
take off the dis...

Maybe I'm missing something, but why not just set the tank on the floor? Why would it need to
be secured to the kegs?It needs to go inside the fridge with the kegs and the fridge floor is
too uneven f...

Oak flavours would be wrong, in my opinion. The vinous flavours will come through aging the
beer. Molasses may be a nice addition, however.But, this is home brewing, so experiment with
whatever you li...
Posted in thread: Is my shank long enough? on 10-14-2014 at 06:13 PM
Sorry for the dodgy title, I couldn't resist...I've bought some lovely taps for my kegerator
project, which have come equipped with 1" shanks - will these be long enough to get through a
fridge door? ...
