Get the 6.5 gallon. Then you can use it as a primary and a secondary.
If you are trying to save a few dollars, then the 5 gallon will work fine.

Mine came out pretty dark too, which is why I kind of wish it had a heavier body to it. The oats might or carapilis might do the trick. I really don't have much experience making my own recipes. I...

I have only done extract kits with the grains steeped. How exactly would I go about mashing the carapils?
Will they add more body like a porter, or just a creamy taste like adding Malto Dextrine?

If it was me, I wouldn't mess with it for at least 7-10 days before taking a gravity reading. Even then, it would only be to transfer to a secondary which I let sit for another two weeks.

You can buy regular taps like that practically anywhere, the thing about this one is that it springs back into a closed position when you let go of it so there is no accidental waste.

Poppet O-Ring

I have noticed that the poppet valve springs on kegs have a special shaped o-ring on them. Is there a place like McMasters that sells that o-ring, instead of having to buy a new poppet valve?
