I'm thinking of the 525ss for my next build also. The next question is.....who has the best price on them?

Got mine at birdmanbrewing.com - they had the best price when I build my setup. Great service too.

Is everyone running 5ft lengths? I have read some doing 10f lengths to limit foaming.

I haven't had any foaming issues with my 525ss's using 5ft lengths.

Call me cheap but I went with 3 525pc and have no issues with them and at 1/2 the cost of the 525ss it left my money for another 10 gallon batch of brew.

Ritebrew.com has 525pc for 18.49 and 525ss for 32.99

Until I got 10 ft length lines I had no use for the creamer function on my Perlicks. Now I occasionally use it on stouts. 10 ft lines are a must, in my opinion.

Wait until the SS flow controls come. Supposed to be later this year. Use picnic taps in the meantime

I thought they were not going to make it in SS. Very cool if they are. They do have more parts though, I wonder if it is overall worth it or better to just use the 525 ss.
