Tom T. Hall all day long. My dad got me into him several years back, before I started brewing, and he just seemed like a natural fit when I started making beer.

@Redcoat or Rebel: I don't have anything on the build. The cooler is pretty much fitted with the pump on the top, and that runs to the out line of my keg. That's about it.

Yes – kind of. I’m using standard barbed quick disconnects; black at the beer and gray at the gas. However, I’ve swapped the dip tubes inside the keg. The long dip tube (modified from a liquid...

The beer is lightly carbonated to begin with, and the restriction of the sparkler tip causes some of that to foam up for the head, but yeah, there is still a good prickle of carbonation left. When I...
