So i've been setting up my bar getting ready for football season and got some soda going. I went to drink it at first and it tasted fine, but a day later its got an off taste. So I check the lines everything was fine, and then I noticed the tail piece was rusted. I installed it about 2 years ago, and I have no idea what type of metal I used or where I got it from. Its a silver color so my guess is stainless or nickle, but I was under the impression those wouldnt rust.

you probably would have had the same problems with beer - brass or stainless would work great (stainless always has a narrow advantage). Plated fittings can give you trouble, since it doesn't take much to breach the plating somewhere, and then it's all over.

Maybe you can use these Grain, Hops, Yeast Reference Charts
