So I'd say it was a worthy investment. In my opinion, the water tastes much better out of the
filter, and considering the filters last for 3 months of an entire household use, I think I'll
get my mila...

Teflon tape and hand tight connections were all that were necessary.Here is the ball valve. is

So I've been less than 100% happy with some of my brews lately, and I've begun to

Posted in thread: pin or ball locks? on 10-20-2011 at 11:45 PM
Functionally, no. They both do the same. When I got into kegging, I found a better deal with a

guy.FWIW, there is...
