Has anyone made a tap handle out of wooden apples? I was thinking about stacking of a few of them on top of each other for my apfelwein. What does anyone think?

Knowing how Apfelwine can sneek up on you, something like this may be in order...

Can you push Apfelwine right out of your normal keg set up, or do you need a different type of faucet?

I haven't yet, but I'll have some ready to go in a couple weeks. I know people keg it though and I haven't seen anything about different set ups.

I use the same setup to serve my apfelwein as I do for all my other beers.

The only potential thing to consider while having it on tap is the carbonation level. If you don't want to serve it carbonated you'll need a separate/secondary/dual/etc regulator to gauge it down to the 2-3 psi level. If you don't mind it carbed up, then treat it just like any other keg of ale.

Bought. I'm thinking of stacking them a little off center. I'll post some pics once they get delivered and I get it done.
