The point in all of this is that I do NOT like my beer force carbonated . . .

. . . and the word you are looking for is "spigot" . . .

I realize, even if I don't understand why, some people don't find cellar temperature, gently carbonated beer appealling. But I really believe most folks if given a GOOD draft of real ale would see the light. I wish there was more real ale available in the US. But until that day, I have my engines and the means to brew all the beer I could ever want. Life is good.

Sonvolt, you enjoying the CAMRA guide?

Absolutely!

It's not even one of those things that you have to 'develop a taste for' or train yourself to like it, it's just naturally very tasty. I think one of the problems is there's just as much, if not more, bad cask ale out there as there is good cask ale.

There isnt any reason why this hand pump wounldnt work with a refriderator. Somthing like that Sanyo that people are converting into kegerators. Maybe get a tempature control device to keep the temp around 58 degrees?

alright mates - just returned from the UK and I must say real ale is where its at! I will be building my engine as soon as I am able. Those Brits sure know how to leave a good thing alone and enjoy it. I must say it is different and absolutely not ice cold silver bullet, but it is unique, rich and satisfying. Cheers.
