I'll let the other guys hit the other points, but this one jumped out at me.

CO2 is a liquid/vapor mix in the tank, and the pressure is directly related to the temperature of the liquid & vapor. ...

Taste aside, it's a lot cheaper to buy BMC stuff in half-barrels than it is in 30 packs. A 30 pack is going to run you close to $20 nowadays. When you can pay $60 for a half barrel, you're coming...

Kegconnection sells stainless couplings. I don't see how this would be any more of a nucleation site than the tubing that goes into your shank. It's basically the same fitting.

The collar probably has the same issue mine had. The snapring isn't seated correctly. They sent me a new tower since I couldn't get the shank out.

I don't think mine is exactly that brand, but it doesn't use the threads on the CO2 canister to attach to the charger. The outer housing basically pushes the canister onto the post.

I've heard no such pops on my 309.

I'd say my issues are probably due to age. I went back and looked at when I bought this stuff, and it was right at 5 years ago. Mine has been in an air-conditioned basement for that time period.

I'm currently seeing creep on 2 of my 3 Chudnow regulators. One is pretty bad, the other is manageable. The one that isn't creeping is the one that's been isolated and unused for several years.

I had a good experience with them. Shipping was quick and I didn't have a customer service issue.

I got a 3 body reg and all of the disconnects to hook it up to my kegerator.
