Rogue - I use BLC - BeerLineCleaner - 2/5 ounce (yes, tiny amount) makes up a quart of cleaner... then flush with ice water per instructions.

you don't need the kit - just a quart of the stuff - it will last a long time.
then build one of these

*Update* Got my tap handle figured out! Hope you like it. Thinking about welding another nut in the open end of the wrench and having a piece of steel that you can screw in there for the labels.

Easy enough to do if you have a welder on hand. Picked up the wrench from Home Depot in a set for 8 bucks in the clearance bin since I wasn't going to use any of my snap-on stuff or my great grandpa's tools lol. Put the wrench in a vice, heated it up with a blow torch and hit it with a hammer until it looked good. Then tack welded the nut on the back side, ground it smooth, ran a tap through it, cleaned it up and bolted it on. Probably gonna do that for the other six taps I'm planning on putting in there.

That's an awesome idea!!! Would still look good without the "label" too!
