    Looks like a combination of too much sun and too much water - on the bicycle seat!:o

  • Posted in thread: DIY Beer Faucet Lock on 08-03-2009 at 07:55 PM
    I will eventually get a cable lock so that I can keep my child out of the beer. I think I have
    more to worry about from a loose ball bouncing around in the garage or accidently bumping into
    a tap hand...

    I'm new, but here are my thoughts. The title needs to be modified. This isn't a simple process
    from those that haven't brewed before. The author should have brewed using extract (not all
    grain). It re...

    The Better Bottle became much more useful to me once I was able to install the cheap spigot

    Go ahead and get the Perlick 525SS faucets. That is the newer model. You can get those from
    Rapids Wholesale. I would get 5/16" gas line. Also, I would consider getting a shank that is
    longer than 3"....

    I don't think it's so much that it is noisy, in my case the bar like the one in the picture
    with the small pivot point would get thrown even on the lowest speed of my stirplate.Same here.
    I built a st...

    Thanks for being sympathetic with me. You are right in that shipping costs could double or
    triple the cost of one shank. You know, building a nice kegerator is very expensive and time
    consuming. For a...

    Sorry, need to rant here a little, and maybe save others a headache or two. The service I've
    gotten from Beverage Factory is unacceptable in my opinion. I recently ordered 5 of the same
    shanks. Howeve...

    What kind of bit and technique did you drill with? I accidentally bought a non ported BB and
    have a spare nozzle laying around.Thanks.I used this 1" hole saw: DEWALT at Lowe's: 1" High

    the Merlin: You might need to divulge how you worked the gasket & nut inside before you
    frustrate those who will try this. BB includes a cut piece of plastic tubing to aide in putting
