Christmas has come and gone, now time to hook myself up!!
Looking for a stout faucet, Beer Gas (Nitrogen) Tank and CO2 Regulator to Nitrogen Tank Adapter (http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=140).
I found a stout faucet on ebay that appears to be a good deal: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stout-Guinne...item43b54f7da8

Just checking here first to see if:
a) anyone has any of the above available
b) if anyone has purchased a stout faucet from ebay and what you thought of it

Cheers and Hoppy New Year!

Don't buy a tank If you don't have a place to fill the tank.You should 1st check your local AirGas.. They don't fill mixed-gas 75Nit/25co2 at local shops they ship them out to fill( I was told). He liked the idea that I brew my own beer. Long story short.. I have a full 15lb tank of mixed gas for $100.00 + he threw in the co2-regulter adapter..Was told the gas alone is $45.00 . And adapter was $30.00. So try them 1st



And same faucet for less...

The Ritebrew faucet is a Krome brand (confirmed by email). Lots of mixed reviews on the forums, but for $37.... Hmmm. It looks like most of the faucets out there now are these.

I too am looking, but am considering stainlessbrewing.com He claims his are all stainless. Looks different than the Krome version

I have two SS Stout faucets that I do not use. They were purchased from kegcowboy if you want to reference the faucet. I believe it's the same one you're looking at.

I happen to prefer Perlick so I don't use either anymore. Could part with one or both if you are interested.

Can't thank everyone enough for the feedback posted. Still trying to track a place down near me that will fill a tank. I'm looking to get a smaller tank to fit in my fridge, so can't do the swap most places offer. If I find a place, I'm definitely interested in a faucet, but don't hold for me.

Cheers!

To be honest you don't necessarily need to use beer gas or nitro. The creamy head is all due to the faucet itself, not the gas it's pushed with. Nitro or beer gas is used due to the need of a higher psi needed to push beer through the faucet. The faucet is 100% responsible for the effect not the gas used.

I used to run on beer gas, but alternately you could run 100% nitro if you carb the beer first then switch to nitro to push beer through your facuet. 100% nitro is easier to find and refill a tank.

Also, you could do like I did in the end. Just run system on CO2. When you want to pour a beer, dial up pressure on your regulator to 25-30 psi, pour beer and then dial the pressure back down to where you normally serve at so beer does not become over carbed. Also be sure to blead off excess pressure on the keg.

UPS web site estimates $17.77 for UPS ground. Not sure if their is a better or more cost effective method of shipping than UPS ground, but open to suggestions.
